I absolutely ADORE Dr. Morioka! I have been going to her for 23 years and she has ALWAYS shown how much she cared for me and for my husband who is also her patient. Of course, her skills are beyond compare.

SHC Patient, Mar 2017

Absolutely best doctor!

SHC Patient, Mar 2017

This is return visit for my medical leave. Dr. Morioka carefully examined me and she's pleased with my health recovery progress. She's patiently listen to my concerns and encouraged me keeping good work. She also advised me on continuing health improvement and area to pay attention to.

SHC Patient, Mar 2017

I would say Dr Morioka is one of the best doctors I have ever had the pleasure of working with on my health . She has an excellent bedside manner, is thorough, takes time to discuss any matter of importance, is truly concerned about a patient's well-being - not only with specific health items but any other matters that may be impacting one's health - e.g. I have an elderly parent - how is that impacting me and how am I taking care of myself? I feel very fortunate to have her as my doctor.

SHC Patient, Mar 2017

Dr. Morioka is one of the best GP's I've ever met.

SHC Patient, Feb 2017

First time visit, Dr. Douglas spent lots of time to summarize/organize my health history, pin point the test I need to take regarding my problem, write down the lists I have to watch, very friendly and knowledgeable. I know I made the right choice, the best doctor I ever had!

SHC Patient, Feb 2017

Very good dr. -

SHC Patient, Jan 2017

Dr. Morioka, is one of the best doctors Stanford has in my opinion. She always makes me feel like I'm her only patient. I know she doesn't think she deserves any credit for me changing my lifestyle to get my diabetes under control; but she was a big part in it. She Never rushes me and always seems to be interested in hear my concerns. Big Thank you Dr. Morioka!

SHC Patient, Jan 2017

Perfect visit. No concerns or changes.

SHC Patient, Dec 2016

I liked receiving written instructions

SHC Patient, Nov 2016

Dr. Morioka-Douglas is a phenomenal physician! She goes out of her way to provide helpful information and resources to her patients -- even printing material out on occassion. She spends a great deal of time talking to me about various health concerns and never seems rushed or hurried. I am truly so grateful to have her guidance and care. Please let her know she is doing an outstanding job!

SHC Patient, Nov 2016

I always enjoy my appointments with Dr. Morioka-Douglas - she provides useful information.

SHC Patient, Oct 2016

The appointment was not at all rushed.

SHC Patient, Oct 2016

I have had very good care form my PCP for many years.

SHC Patient, Oct 2016

My care giver has been my primary care physician for more than 25 years. I have complete confidence in her and her relationship to me. She always listens to my concerns, Stanford and I are both blessed to have her on our team.

SHC Patient, Sep 2016

This care provider, Doctor, has even my Primary Care Physician for 22 years. I have complete confidence in her and have had excellent care and attention on every visit.

SHC Patient, Sep 2016

I truly trust Dr. Morioko-Douglas, Dr. Sklarin and Dr.Tran. I had quite a few medical procedures and all were handled well. I especially liked how all three doctors spoke to one another via email about medical procedure and biopsy.

SHC Patient, Sep 2016

I have been a patient of Dr. Morioka for many years. She has always gone over and beyond providing medical care.

SHC Patient, Sep 2016

Dr. Morioka is fantastic!

SHC Patient, Sep 2016

excellent

SHC Patient, Sep 2016

Dr. Morioka Douglass is a wonderful person and was concerned and helpful.

SHC Patient, Sep 2016

Care provider seemed eager to move on to next patient, during my appointment with care provider. I spent only a short amount of time with care provider (maybe 10 min or so), still had questions for care provider, but care provider was literally already standing at the door, obviously ready to leave, while I still had questions to ask. Answers that care provider attempted to provide me seemed rushed, as if care provider only wanted to provide them so care provider could leave to see next patient. Was not overall very happy with the visit and the care I was provided.

SHC Patient, Sep 2016

She's been my doc for over 30 years. Smart and caring. Helps me navigate the system.

SHC Patient, Aug 2016

Nancy is not my PCP but she was absolutely fantastic! Thorough, fast and covered even more than what I actually went in to see her about.

SHC Patient, Aug 2016

Care provider was thorough and competent. She made sure that we covered all of the necessary health concerns.

SHC Patient, Aug 2016

SHC Patient, Aug 2016

Dr. Nancy Morioka-Douglas was a phenomenal provider!

SHC Patient, Jul 2016

Dr. Morioka, one of the best!

SHC Patient, Jul 2016

Very thorough and very professional.

SHC Patient, Jul 2016

Dr. Morioka-Douglas is the best doctor ever. I've not seen a doctor who would spend with me so much time to discuss not only my health issues, but & my life-style overall.

SHC Patient, Jun 2016

My doctor, Nancy Morioka-Douglas is beyond the Very Good you have as a choice. She has been my physician for years and has taken time with my situation, remembers small details about my life, gives great advice. I am so fortunate to have her.

SHC Patient, Jun 2016

Dr. Morioka is an excellent MD

SHC Patient, May 2016

I have been a patient of Dr. Morioka's for many years now (17?). She feels like a friend when she enters the exam room, always asks me about the parts of my life that are important to me, and takes all the time I need. My confidence in her is such that I will follow through on things I would prefer not to do (e.g. colonoscopy) simply upon her recommendation. She is an incredible listener, and she allows me to be an active partner in my health care. You have to make it so that she can NEVER retire, OK? (Geez, I wish that was a reasonable request!)

SHC Patient, May 2016

Have been a patient with Dr. Morioka Douglas for 20 years, and think she is outstanding.

SHC Patient, May 2016

Dr. Morioka-Douglas is a great doctor who cares about her patient.

SHC Patient, May 2016

Dr. Nancy Morioka-Douglas has been my Primary Doctor for a long time and I get the best treatment. She takes time in explaining about my problem and condition with pictures and other devices. I can always E-mail her with my problems and she is there answering my questions right away and if need be I can see her right away.

SHC Patient, May 2016

Dr. Morioka Douglas is awesome! Knowledgeable, approachable, and generous with her time and advice.

SHC Patient, Apr 2016

SHC Patient, Apr 2016

Best GP I have ever had!

SHC Patient, Apr 2016

Dr. Morioka Douglas is an excellent doctor who is concern with my health and takes time to answer all my questions

SHC Patient, Apr 2016

I think that doctor should ahve more time with patient. It is very difficult understand what is going on with the patient for 15 min.!

SHC Patient, Mar 2016

Dr. Morioka actually used some of her lunch time and asked me to come in earlier than my scheduled appointment so we would have enough time to talk. I consider that going way above and beyond the norm. I have been going to Dr. Morioka for over 20 years and hope I die before she retires!

SHC Patient, Mar 2016

Dr Morioka is the best!

SHC Patient, Mar 2016

NMD ia a wonderful PCP - there should be more like her.

SHC Patient, Mar 2016

Dr. Morioka-Douglas squeezed me into her busy day and spent a lot of time with me. She is the best!

SHC Patient, Mar 2016

Dr. Moriaka Douglas is one of the most caring doctors I have ever met. She provides excellent explanations of meds, your care, listens to you as you explain your concerns and has an most impressive abundance of knowledge. I have and will continue to reccomend her as a doctor for my friends and family

SHC Patient, Mar 2016

She's a treasure.

SHC Patient, Mar 2016

I LOVE LOVE LOVE Dr. Moriaka- Douglas. She really listens, gives me exactly the care I need, and addresses the 360 degrees of what is involved for my health. I even enjoy the visits with her because watching an artist at her craft is a pleasure. I left feeling like my health was on track and I had a plan to keep it there.

SHC Patient, Mar 2016

I feel privileged and very grateful that Dr. Morioka is my physician. She consistently exceeds my expectations. She is so good that she could teach Nordstrom's about customer care!

SHC Patient, Feb 2016

Best doctor at Stanford!

SHC Patient, Feb 2016

First time visit with Dr. Morioka. I was impressed with all her knowledge and positive attitude. I found more healing in her inspirational words, than I did in the medicines that she prescribed. Dear Dr. Morioka thanks for adding a human touch to my treatment!

SHC Patient, Jan 2016

Dr. Marioka was very comprehensive and compassionate. She empathized with how I was feeling and was very clear on the examination process.

SHC Patient, Jan 2016

Dr. Morioka is superb!

SHC Patient, Dec 2015

SHC Patient, Nov 2015

Great amount of time spent great discussion.

SHC Patient, Oct 2015

Dr. Morioka is one of the best MD's I've ever known. She is always so caring and concerned. She really goes above and beyond all my expectations. I will have a hard when and if she retires.

SHC Patient, Oct 2015

I would recommend Dr. Morioka anytime but recommending Stanford is whole different story. I have had nothing but bad experience with the Stanford system except my primary physician's office. The specialties clinics are a whole different story. Ophthalmology specially.

SHC Patient, Oct 2015

Dr. Morioka is the best she "rocks."

SHC Patient, Sep 2015

dr morioka- best doctor i've ever had!

SHC Patient, Aug 2015

Dr. Nancy Morioka-Douglas is an excellent provider.

SHC Patient, Aug 2015

Dr. Morioka-Douglas is hands down the BEST doctor I have ever found. All of the above questions should be given even higher than the "very good" option. She is engaged, informative, friendly, unrushed, talks in understandable terms, provides tons of information, genuinely caring, etc. Absolutely the best doctor.

SHC Patient, Aug 2015

I have been seeing Dr. Morioka as my Primary Care Physician since 1994 and I have always felt confident that she had my best interest as her focus. I have seen her mature as an MD service provider who has allowed for many ways to define, understand and provide what will meet my individual Medical needs from a physical, emotional, spiritual,and professional perspective as she has taken the time to know me as a whole person and care about me with compassion by helping to facilitate more integrated, holistic solutions to support my health care needs. This approach has kept me coming back to see her even after I retired from Silicon Valley and went to Paso Robles to live my retirement dream.

SHC Patient, Jul 2015

Fantastic family practitioner. So happy to be her patient again.

SHC Patient, Jul 2015

Dr. Morioka-Douglas' care is always excellent.

SHC Patient, Jul 2015

Was nearly given an inoculation I was allergic to. It was in MyHealth record but doc didn't know! THIS IS SERIOUS!!

SHC Patient, Jun 2015

I have been seeing Dr. Morioka for 20 years. She is, without a doubt, the best medical provider I have ever had. She is patient, listens well, explains clearly and is a caring, wonderful person.

SHC Patient, Apr 2015

dr Morioka-Douglas is great! She is so thorough, caring and super knowledgable. she is always good about answering my emails.

SHC Patient, Apr 2015

Dr. Morika-Douglas always takes extra time to look at my entire medical chart and go over each individual medication I take on a daily basis. She confers with Dr. Sklarin on my thyroid medication and we always discusses my iron regime since I am anemic. Dr. Morika-Douglas is a thorough doctor!

SHC Patient, Mar 2015

I have not heard from Dr.Morioka since my xrays.

SHC Patient, Mar 2015

Dr. Morioka-Douglas is absolutely the most caring and knowledgeable physician that I know. I've been going to her for over 20 years and I would never want to go to someone else as long as she's practicing.

SHC Patient, Mar 2015

My care provider has always given me excellent care and always spends time listening to my concerns if I have them.

SHC Patient, Mar 2015

Dr. Morioka is the best!

SHC Patient, Mar 2015

I was fortunate to find Dr. Morioka about 23 years ago. She is the first doctor who remembered me on a return visit and seemed to truly care about my health. Over the years, she keeps up with changes in my life and somehow remembers details about my family and my experiences. She is amazing. I have seen other doctors, even in the Stanford Family practice, who I refuse to see again. Once I experienced the quality care that she provides, I no longer wanted to tolerate the attitude and impatience of the other doctor with whom I had a poor experiences. (She was my obgyn during my first pregnancy) Dr. Morioka is the best doctor for me, and I drive the extra distance to see her on the das that she is in the office.

SHC Patient, Feb 2015

I have already recommended Dr. Morioka-Douglas to family & friends. They are now patients of her.

SHC Patient, Nov 2014

I saw this doctor twice. Both time she is in a rush & rush through the whole exam. My questions seems to annoy her.

SHC Patient, Oct 2014

Dr. Morioka is much more than a provider... she is a friend, a counselor...

SHC Patient, Sep 2014

It's helpful to use the internet to communicate with my provider.

SHC Patient, Sep 2014

Dr. was rushed ended appointment before all my concerns/questions were addressed (I was asking her questions as she walked out the door) AND she didn't follow up/even after reminding her via My Health") on referrals.

SHC Patient, Sep 2014

Dr. Morioka is very knowledgeable & displayed concerns for both physical & mental well being of the patient. However, I feel at times she seemed dismissive of possibility of problems based on a excellent health history (patients).

SHC Patient, Jul 2014

The doctor didn't treat me and referred me to 3 specialists I got cured at home without going to any specialist.

SHC Patient, Jun 2014

She was gentle, smiling & caring though I met my doctor for the first time.

SHC Patient, May 2014

This provider was outstanding! Her recommendations were evidence-based and practical.

SHC Patient, May 2014

Dr. Morioka is the BEST.

SHC Patient, May 2014

Dr. Nancy Moriok-Douglas is the BEST.

SHC Patient, Jan 2014

Excellent physician!
