I have read some other negative info on Dr. Kimata, but I just wanted to let those who may be looking for a neurologist to consider the following in regards to Dr. Kimata. Like any doctor who sees a large amount of patients, there will be some wait time, but he was willing to hear my concerns and to delve further into questions and things that made me feel that he wanted to be as thorough as possible before making any final diagnosis. He took the time to hear me out and take down very detailed notes to share with my primary physician as well. He closely monitored my progression with the tremors that I am sufferring from, and after a couple of visits he was alerted to the degree of progression and immediately scheduled me for tests. He took the time out of his own personal time-off to do a spinal tap on me to rule out CP due to my MRI results. He has only been open to my questions, and I am very pleased to have Dr. Kimata treating me. I would recommend that to make your visits with Dr. Kimata more meaningful is to take with you a list of questions you may have ahead of time to share with him, and to ask questions if you do not understand. He is always open to questions asked. If possible, you may want to bring a family member to help you with remembering things shared or to help ask questions for you. Dr. Kimata tries to consider the best means to prescribing medications (such as effectiveness and possible benefits it can have in regards to preventing or slowing the progression of other conditions), He is constantly monitoring the effectiveness of the medications that he prescribes to me and takes my tolerance or lack of into consideration. When I do call, he will return my calls within an hour or prior to the end of that work day to follow up.
My overall experience with Dr. Kimata is a positive one and I would recommend his services.
