Provider seemed hurried and needing to move on to the next patient. [...]

I realize that the doctor is busy but his cell phone went of twice during the visit. Once, he just muted it, the other time, he took the call and stepped out of the exam room to talk in the middle of my appointment with him. I may be old fashioned, but this seemed rude to me and made me feel he was distracted.

I like that he listens to me with an attitude that what I have to say "because I know my own body" matters to him along with his medical knowledge in his assessment of my particular health concern for each visit.

I provided my insurance card and the receptionist rejected it saying it was for vision only confusing my wife and I then told them nothing has changed we have the same insurance but she said was not in the system I was leaving when I looked on the providers web site and saw my insurance information which infuriated me and I when back in very upset then I learned the insurance card we provided was the right one in the first place.I believe this situation could have been handled better such as calling a supervisor for help instead of turning away a patient that has been going to this provider for more than 10 years.I will admit I could have handled it better too my only excuse is I was fasting for this appointment and was very hungry.

Dr Kenneth Shiozaki is an excellent physician. He was genuinely concerned. He listened to what I had to say. I especially appreciated that he was not constantly on a computer instead of having a face to face conversation. He was knowledgeable, spoke in a manner I understood, and gave practical advice. I would definitely choose to see him again. He did an excellent job. When I called back, hours later, to say I was still miserable, he called me right back and phoned in a new script which provided immediate relief. I understand there is a great deal of attention addressing opiate addiction. But the pendulum might have swung too far the other way. After filling the smooth muscle relaxant script, I remained miserable. I had drag myself back to the pharmacy a second time to get pain management medication.
