    How was your appointment with Dr. Ishihara?

    Sep 01, 2020
    Dr. Ishihara was able to diagnose my disease when other doctors were perplexed. My test results were confusing other doctors and he narrowed in on a few tests and identified it correctly. His diagnosis has greatly improved my quality of life. Thank you Dr. Ishihara!
