this is a very compassionate and highly competent neurologist. I feel very fortunate to have Dr Morita as a neurologist for my MSA.
Dr. Morita has a very positive interpersonal manner. He takes the necssary time to listen and he takes the time to thoroughly answer questions. He is very knowledgable.
Both Dr. Morita and Dr. Kaul (fellow) were exceptionally knowledgeable and spent more time than I expected to be sure of the diagnosis and treatment plan and to explain them in detail.
Was told so much I couldn't take it in all at once - good!
I was very happy with Dr. Morita's service. He was clear and confident.
It's good to have a doctor with the same neurological issues. Able to relate. I love Dr. Morita
Dr. Morita was very informative and easy to understand. Very nice Doctor!
Dr. Morita was exceptionally thorough and more than willing to answer questions. There was no sense of being rushed through the appointment. The fellow was also quite informative and helpful. The entire experience was very good - so good that even though it is a significant drive to Stanford from Petaluma it was worth the effort. I have elected to follow up at Stanford rather than UCSF based on staff and most especially Dr. Morito.
Dr. Morita is a patient, compassionate provider, which is greatly appreciated. His colleague Dr. Melanie Lising was also exceptional at my last appointment in the Movement Disorders Clinic. Their professionalism, skill set, and empathic clinical demeanor as a medical team have been reassuring despite challenges with current symptoms.
Dr. Morita is a very caring and knowledgeable doctor

Extremely excellent doctor!
The appointment was a little rushed but otherwise great experience. Dr. Morita is very thorough and clear.
Dr. Morita understood my health issue and we were confident he had experience in this area of movement disorder. He made recommendations and explained everything.
The best care I have had from a physician for a long time.
Mainly for Dr. Kaul, but also for Dr. Morita.
A very compasinate Doctor!!!
Dr. Morita was quite patient and spent as much time as I needed.
Dr. Morita always knows the answers to my questions. He gives thoughtful answers.
The doctors were very patient and took their time to answer all questions.
You guys are great!
I'm very grateful to have Dr. Morita as my neurologist. An outstanding Doctor.
The care provider gave me a good insight of my disease & how to go about it on my daily activities.
took time to make sure all questions were answered. Instilled hope and confidence.
Very good.
He is kind, sensitive & caring. Listens and pays attention of your health issues.
An assessment outcome, treatment options and recommendations, in writing, would be helpful.
both doctors were positive, communicated well, and took a lot of time discussing my issues.
I was impressed with how the provider was willing to consider other options and diagnosis.
Very nice.
I just wish I could score this physician higher than "very good". He was excellent.
very helpful
Dr. Morita listened carefully to my questions and answered them without reservation. He is able to give reasons for his recommendations and to refer to current research. I feel he understands my health issues and knows how to best treat them.
Dr Morita was extremely thorough which was very reassuring, and helped me feel confident in his assessment & diagnosis. He covered all of my questions & explained why I am experiencing some of the symptoms that were concering me.
Dr. Morita was very clear and sympathetic towards me and my wife.
The doctor was exceptional.
I must say I has excellent experience.
"I like him"! Couldn't say enough about him. Very thorough. Patient. Courteous. Likeable. Extremely professional -
Dr.Morita very caring and doing his best of taking care of my concerns with my health.
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.
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.
Dr Call and Dr Morita are excellent. they are thorough and caring.
Very good.
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.
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.
I trust and have faith in my doctor! He is the BEST neurologist I have ever seen!
very good experience
This was the first time I'd seen Dr. Morita and I was therefore quite nervous. Yet, he was able to very quickly put me at ease. I really appreciated that.
I was impressed with Dr. Moritas attention to detail. His instructions regarding medications and treatment were extremely clear. I left our appointment feeling very informed with a clear understanding of my diagnosis and treatment plan.
