Dr. Kamo is very knowledgeable, caring, and empathic about my health concerns. Although I live quite far (Fife, WA) my visit to his office is well worth the travel. He is the best Physician I have ever had in all my 64 years!!

Just recommended Dr. Kamo to a couple of people who said they were looking for a new doc. He is a very collaborative doctor, which is often hard to find, and we converse and come to mutual agreement on how to proceed treating any of my issues.

This was my first visit with Dr. Kamo. He was efficient in his actions and assessment. Recommendations and follow up communications were on target. I was able to speak up and offer comments. For an initial doctor / patient encounter the time spent in more general discussion was less than I hoped. Just two additional minutes of low key "getting to know you" conversation would be impactful in reinforcing personal concern by him for my overall well being. I don't know if it were the case, but I understand that tight schedules and urgent events occurring outside the exam room can be very important and distracting.

Dr. Kamo was very patient with my questions and my concerns. I needed a manual pelvic exam and I have past trauma regarding that area of my body. Dr. Kamo was very understanding and got a medical assistant or nurse (I don't remember which) to come in to assist. Please give my thanks to her and to Dr. Kamo.
