Dr. Yoshioka is my primary care physician. She is calm and steady when I am worried. One of her best skills is listening carefully. I feel heard and understood. Dr. Yoshioka also explains test results carefully, gives her advice, and invites my questions and reaction to her advice. We go forward together on a health plan to improve my symptoms. She is patient and kind. I value her care and deeply appreciate her skills as my physician.
