    Dr. Kisanuki always takes his time for the examination, listens, explains things well and makes sure I understand what is medically happening. I have limited mobility but choose to travel over 2.5 hours to be seen by him. This is difficult on me physically and I have to have my daughter and her husband bring me. I go through all of this because he is an excellent doctor.
