Dr. Kabashi is so kind. When she did scystosopy, I knew there was a problem. She was so clear that something must be done and scheduled me for surgery.
Even though Dr. Kobashi was busy. I never felt rushed. She listened attentively and answered questions, asked pertinent questions.
Very nice to have personnel speaking Japanese.
Dr. Kobashi took care of me when she wasn´t even on duty at the time. The scheduling mishap was fixed thru her help in seeing me.
Dr. Kobashi has been extremely helpful to me over the years. She has helped me get me through difficult challenges and I appreciate her caring and knowledge so much. She is a great doctor!
Dr. Kobashi is an excellent doctor. She is trustworthy & very easy to talk to. I completely trust the type of care she provides for me.
I love Dr. Kobashi best dr. I have had for urinary in 4 yrs.
The follow-on concerns were fully addressed & will take place next year.
Dr. Kobashi is nice and polite and I trust her. However, I want to note a few things: she never washed her hands or sanitized when entering the exam room. She didn´t touch me during our consultation, but i would have liked to see that. The Dr listened to what I had to say, but the appointment was VERY brief - under 10 minutes.
Very personable as well as knowledgeable getting both is sometimes difficult, so I was pleased.
Only got to say hello to Doc - Nurses phy. asst did the exam.
I like Dr. Kobeshi´s common sense attitude.
This care provider I have 100% confidence in her/ ____ I wish her (...) that is my noble Dr. Kathleen Kobashi is excellent and she & staff with her need no improvements. She knows her stuff.
Very welcoming and patient. Especially on the embarrassing aspect as to why I was there.
Dr. Pittenger is the best!!
In my opinion, Dr. Kobashi (being assigned to) was the best thing that could happen to me.
Immediately referred me to Dr. Porter in the office as surgical specialist. Excellent.
Dr. Kobashi personally called me - Long distance to give me information about the very complicated progress of ordering my prescriptions.
This was my first visit with Dr. Kobashi and was very impressed with her friendly, down to earth manner which put me at ease immediately. She was very articulate in explaining my condition to me with ways to help me to manage and over come my condition.
Dr. Kobaski explained my treatment & concerns about my condition.
She way very friendly & answered all my questions & cared what I said.
Dr. Kobashi was professional, friendly & courteous. She is very nice.
I was very anxious during this appointment and Kobashi relieved my concerns, gave me options and did what we needed to do in order to help my worry. It happened very fast, and I was happy she took the time to fit in a procedure within 20 minutes of promising (a scope)! The only thing that was disappointing is that I made the appt for a scan, and had to wait an hour.
The doctor was a superb teacher as well as very gentle during the time she examined me!
Enjoy your staff - makes coming in for embarrassing concerns easier.
I fill out forms she did not read & didn´t check my former dr. at Overlake.
Dr. Kobashi is a lifesaver & an amazing down to earth lady, which carries over to her stellar staff!
I questioned whether she really understood my concerns.
Always a great experience.
I really APPRECIATED the follow-up appt!! Just to see how I was doing wish more providers checked in after initial appts. like Dr. Kobashi. #6. (I appreciated the follow-up.) #9, 10. VERY PLEASED.
