"As others have stated, Dr. Kau and his staff are awesome. Friendly, efficient, caring. Dr. Kau himself is great at explaining things and making my kids feel comfortable. He's a worthy successor to Dr. Ohata. They have a smooth system for using text messaging & email for reminders and can handle the fact that my cell phone is only for texting and call me when needed on my home phone!"

Dr. Kau is professional, courteous and has excellent bedside manner with the children. Sad that my youngest child will be aging out of his practice soon! "
