I was in for a transplant evaluation. Each test I went through one after the other went like a well oiled machine. I don't think I could've received better care anywhere else.

This Doctor is the best in his field. The only down side is I had a very hard time understanding him. Other then that I wouldn't change a thing.

I had and excellent meeting with Dr Shigemura and his Nurse Practicioner, [...]. They very courteous and respectful. My greetings upon entering the office was not courteous nor respectful. The greeter urgently called for me as I was attempting to complete the required paperwork. I explained I was still completing the paperwork she called out "next patient!" I followed her into the examination room. My wife inquired as to whether I needed to complete the paperwork, as I was and existing patient. She angrily removed the paperwork saying she would shred it.

Truthfully the PA gave me all the information and went through the transplant process from a cardiology aspect prior to the Provider cam into the room. He asked if I had any questions, I said I had 1, he told me to ask my pulmonologist.
