Ratings for Dr. Janice K. Shimoda
I first saw Dr. Shimoda when I had an ailment other doctors wouldn't take seriously. She kept at it, referring me to others when needed, until it was diagnosed as Restless Legs Syndrome. It's a fairly well-known diagnosis now, but wasn't then. My husband & I have been seeing her ever since--about 20 yrs now--and we can't speak highly enough of her. She has always treated us with respect & caring. She's knowledgeable but doesn't think she's a god; she is a down-to-earth person. She told me that if she starts to leave the exam room before all my concerns are addressed, she wants me to tell her, & she'll stay until I get the answers I need. The clinic where she practices has x-ray & lab facilities on-site, so I can get many of the prescribed tests without having to make an extra appointment elsewhere. It's very convenient. The staff has always been polite & professional. Once I fainted having blood drawn, & one of the other doctors rushed in to help. Great people, great place, great care.
Extremely rude and discourteous staff. Dr. Shimoda is a very nice person, but if you want to avoid frustration and annoyance I can't recommend you see her as a patient. Her staff made appointments for me, then canceled them with reference to an insurance "rule" that I had never heard of. This "rule" was not mentioned in any of the clinic's documents. I wish the best for Dr. Shimoda, but recommend that patients try some other doctor first.
