    Dr. Kisanuki is fabulous. I have never had a doctor spend so much time discussing my diagnosis and options. He truly wants to be sure I understand the situation and we decided together what to do. He was forthright about what could happen. He always responds to My Chart messages. I realize I may have to wait to see him longer than the 15 minutes but I am sure it is because he is spending just as much time with others. I am blessed to have found someone who could discover my diagnosis and cares about my situation.
