I agree with the other reviews. Dr. Miyake is not supportive, she not able to establish a patient-doctor rapport, and does not address concerns. I called her office and let her staff know that I was looking for a PCP (she is listed as an internal medicine doctor with a specialty in endocrinology/metabolism by my insurance company). In her office she said she is does not act as an internal medicine doctor anymore and that my insurance probably wouldn't cover this visit since she had nothing to diagnose me with based on her "conversation" with me. My main concern was my weight gain of ~10 lbs per year for 10 years (since giving birth to my daughter) for a total of 100 lbs. She didn't ask about diet or exercise. I volunteered my weight loss efforts - weight watchers, some weight loss apps, plus I exercise for 1 hour a day 5 times per week. She lectured me about how I most likely eat more than I think and am less active than when I was younger. I asked if she would prescribe phentermine. She told me she does not believe in weight loss medication. She gave me a prescription to get blood work done. I left totally defeated.

Did not respond to or appropriately address my concerns. Lacks personality.
