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.
