Verified Patient Reviews
Dr. Ogawa-Reel is prompt, attentive, and very personable. Her staff complements her professionalism. I would highly recommend Dr. Ogawa-Reel.
First time visit, it was great and she explain everything to me so that I could understand.
Dr. Ogawa-Reel is one of the best doctors I've seen in my life. She spends lots of time understanding symptoms, listening to medical history, and asking detailed questions about reactions and conditions. She's incredibly thorough, prompt, and makes sure you are well-informed on her opinion.
She was very personable with my 2yr old- her patient. She was knowledgeable and informed me every step of the way.
Doctor Ogawa and staffs were very kind, and I was relieved with polite examination.
Dr was very nice and explained everything
Dr Ogawa-Reel and her staff are friendly and professional.
She was so wonderful and took her time educating my daughter on her issues....: what a wonderful doctor!
She was very nice and listen to everything I had to say. She took her time with me and I really appreciate that. I recommend her 100%.
She is an excellent doctor. I was able to get allergy testing and diagnosed in one visit. I did not want to do allergy shots so she recommended a medication that works great for me.
Great doctor for treating allergies and asthma. Really takes the time to make sure you understand and to answer any questions you have. Her front desk doesn't seem to understand my insurance and they always bill me incorrectly, but once they get reimbursed, they've always given me credit for whatever I over-payed before.
I love the staff, they are always so kind and really care about their patients. Dr. Ogawa is also amazing and is one of the first doctors to actually listen to me and work with me to get my asthma and allergies in better shape! I would highly recommend them if you want to work with a great and caring doctor as well as great staff :)
Dr Ogawa is polite and spends a certain amount of time going over your symptoms. Her staff, however, is very rude and treats you like an airline. A doctor's office is really only as good as the people they employ. On the diagnostics side of things, she is not thorough examining and seems to jump to conclusions without any additional tests. For me, a prescription without trying to find the cause of the problem is not acceptable.
Very pleased with my experienced. Pleasant front office staff, knowledgeable and approachable physician. Highly recommend.
It was not serious issue. But I could talk having all issues. She checked up and adviced with care to my concern.
The office is well organized and on time. Staff is helpful. Dr. is knowledgeable and personable. Good experience
Great staff; awesome anx knowledgable doctor.
Listened to my concerns and was very understanding.
The doctor was so helpful and he staff was quick, I will be returning.
This was our first visit and I absolutely love her. She explains EVERYTHING to yo in detail and also makes sure before you leave her office that you understand everything. She came up with a great treatment plan for my daughter that our last allergist didn't do.
Very good Dr.!

Dr. Ogawa-Reel was extremely insightful. She did not make me feel rushed and took a great deal of time to listen to my symptoms and concerns. I'd highly recommend her.
very good & nice Dr.
I was very impressed with Dr. Ogawa as she explained the different treatment options thoroughly to me.
She spent more time with me than I expected. She asked all sorts of questions to make sure that she was able to understand everything that was occurring. She even spent time going over my asthma, even though this was a visit about my allergies, since she wanted to make sure everything was working well for me. Her front desk staff went over the cost of different procedures before I saw her so that I could be aware of that, which I really appreciated.
My time in the office was a great experience. Dr. Reel was very sweet, very accommodating, very professional, and very thorough in explaining my conditions and the treatment methods associated. I would highly recommend Dr. Reel to anyone going forward.

Dr.Ogawa-Reel spent a lot of time with me to get to the bottom of waht ailed me. I highly recommend her.
Very prompt and professional service. I was seen right away and thoroughly explained on what was going to take my place during my visit. After my tests were completed, I was then explained the results of my tests in a way I could completely understand.
She is very thorough, asked a lot of questions and listened to my concerns. My son is 22 months and she took her time, entertained him while she examined him and was very patient. Overall I'm very happy with the visit.
I was very nervous about getting allergy-tested because I know I am allergic to practically everything. She stayed in the room the entire time and made me feel comfortable. I had a reaction to all the testing and she acted quickly to give me the best care. During a nervous time she made me feel at ease. I now do allergy shots and am having a good experience. She is patient, knowledgable and is willing to explain things to you. I would highly recommend her to anyone and everyone!
My visit with Dr. Ogawa was great. She has patience to listen to your concerns and addresses them. I never felt like she was rushing to get me out of there. She also didn't try to order tests that were unnecessary. I highly recommend her.

Enjoyed the time she took to present different options and how to treat my symptoms.
Best doctor I've ever been to see! Extremely nice, approachable, and knowledgeable.
Everyone in the office was awesome. Dr. Ogawa was very attentive.
She is absolutely wonderful.
I saw Dr. Ogawa-Reel regulary to receive allergy treatment for over a year. Throughout that time she was an excellent allergist and her staff was fantastic as well. She was extremely flexible with the allergy treatment schedule to accommodate my work schedule. Her office was always very easy to contact for treatment scheduling or last minute refills for prescriptions. She also went out of her way and offered consultation for other symptoms I was having.
Very meticulous and hands on. Truly follows you through every step of the process and monitors your progression.
Dr. Ogawa-Reel is wonderful!!! She's very thorough and courteous. I wish many other doctors would be like her. It is awesome that she opens Friday afternoons so I don't have to miss work.
She's an excellent doctor. She cared and listened to what I said about my allergy symptom. She told me know of what I need to know.
I think she listened and did the best she could without any previous records on my Dad. Seems very caring and patient with elderly.
It was my first time going to an Allergist---that is an allergy doctor---I googled it. So I didn't know what to expect. However, she definitely gives a lot of information and gives you her whole attention.
Super friendly and attentive and above all a good listener.
The time the doctor spent with me was exceptional. She asked lots of questions to help learn about my problem and come up with solutions to help me. Most doctors just try to get you out as quickly as possible and therefore the problem I am having has never been solved. I am confident that Dr. Yoshiko will be able to help me and I will stick with her.
It was much more than I expected!!
excellent doctor very knowledgeable
I recomend Dr. Ogawa-Reel to everyone. She is very nice and kind. She listens carefully and answers my questions accurately from her broad and deep knowledge.
She really knows her stuff. She took her time and paid very close attention to my concerns. She provided me with plenty of samples if she felt that medicine would be beyond my budget. I will definitely be returning!
