service and Doctor is the best

December 26, 2018

Dr. Onishi was very accessible and patient. Unfortunately he did not have access to one of the key tests he needed to evaluate my condition, as that test did not make it into the UPMC database for me. I asked that Dr. Onishil obtain that test (an EMG) from another UPMC doctor I've seen who had a copy of the test results and let me know whether that changed his theory of the source of my condition. I am waiting to hear back from him.

the wait to see the doctor was extremely long probably about an hour but it was worth the wait. I am very pleased with Dr. Onishi's patience and experience and knowledge

He offered a multistep nonsurgical approach to a longstanding knee problem/pain.

Dr. Onishi is a wonderful physician.

Excellent physician.

The doctor exceeded my expectations with up to date scientific acumen, listening skills and professionalism.

I've been looking for a doctor like Dr Onishi for a long time. He didn't rush through the first appt and did a thorough exam vs looking locally. It is also wonderful that he is a runner too so understood my pain in a way and wanted to get me back up on my feet. Dr Onishi was kind, funny, has an excellent bedside manner and seems to have a gift for helping people. He's provided solutions to hopefully avoid surgery which is a road I hope to not go on. I have yet to reach out to him with follow up questions so am not sure of his responsiveness but for the first time I actually believe I will get better under Dr Onishi's care. He's given me hope.

Took a special interest in my specific case, regardless of the general population norms/usual findings. He took the time to assess me thoroughly, and answered my questions. Dr. Onishi (and his assistant and fellows) were kind and caring and I LOVED how thorough they were when trying to understand my medical history. They were realistic with the next steps forward with treatment, and they did not try to make me believe something just to use another "modality" of treatment.
