Dr. Kaizuka really cares about her patients. She makes me feel like I am her top priority and never has rushed me out of an appointment if we were taking a while. She always answers my questions with such knowledge, compassion, and patience. My health has improved more since I started seeing her than any other provider throughout my life.

Dr. Kaizuka already had her kind made up as to what was wrong and didn't listen to anything I said. She tried to put words in my mouth to make me agree with her and her behavior was really offensive.

Jul 07, 2023


Dr. Kaizuka always listens w/passion and responds and treats me & my condition w/care and emphasis on ALL factors that play a roll in my health issue(s). She doesn't just zone in on the one area, she makes sure she understands the whole picture in order to diagnose & treat accordingly so nothing is being overlooked/which I appreciate as some dr. do not do so.

The doctor he saw was comforting, thorough and efficient. He suggested that follow he up w my father's PP/GP which we completed today.

I cannot say enough about how amazing Dr. Kaizuka is. She is a star provider and I hope more providers become more like her. I cannot think of anything she could improve on. Great physician and a wonderful person.

Dr. K is a wonderful acupuncturist. She is totally dedicated to helping me with my numerous spinal muscle issues.

[...] but she seemed less than interested in anything and in a rush to get me out.
