I have elected to follow up at Stanford rather than UCSF based on staff and most especially Dr. Morito.

SHC Patient, Aug 2016

Dr.Morita very caring and doing his best of taking care of my concerns with my health.

SHC Patient, Aug 2016

my doctor confused me when he entered room. I thought he was joking inappropriately by shaking uncontrollably. I was uneasy til I realized he has a motion disorder of some sort. I liked him very much and would have preferred if he just mentioned this to me right at the start. I asked him before leaving about it and he gave me enough info, but, I think he should do it at the start if he's dealing with a patient like myself.

SHC Patient, Aug 2016

Dr. Marita Hokuto has been amazing with my husband, as well as everyone else. He as well as everyone else has managed to make a horrible illness and situation a little bit better.

Very courteous and thorough with his concern and good attitude.

SHC Patient, Jul 2016

Dr Call and Dr Morita are excellent. they are thorough and caring.

SHC Patient, Jul 2016

Very good.

SHC Patient, Jul 2016

I got the impression that Dr Morita wasn't entirely familiar with the difficulties with my meds that I'd had earlier in the month, exchanging a number of emails with his staff, etc. I know these doctors see a lot of patients, but I hope that my emails do get to him eventually when the staff responds to them.

SHC Patient, Jul 2016

Dr. Morita did not seem to understand that the reason we were there was to become a test subject in the focused ultra sound project and not to be examined for any other reason.

SHC Patient, Jul 2016

Good.

SHC Patient, Jul 2016

I trust and have faith in my doctor! He is the BEST neurologist I have ever seen!

SHC Patient, Jul 2016

Good.

SHC Patient, Jun 2016
