This Dr was very rude. Like another review I read he also seemed annoyed to be bothered with me. His diagnosis? He didn't know "what my problem was" Save your money and time! DON'T SEE HIM!!!

Don't let all the bad reviews scare you. Dr. Kitaoka is the most professional and wonderful doctor I have met. He save my foot back in 1994. To this day due to his expertise I'm walking. Thank you Dr. K.

I have never been so rudely treated by a doctor as I was by Harold B. Kitaoka, M.D.. He seemed to be annoyed that I was taking his time and wasn't even civil. I will never return to the podiatry department at Mayo. The man who makes my orthotics at the shoe store was far more helpful

I was shocked at Dr. Kitaoka's cold manner. He actually partially turned his back to me during the appointment. He only did a cursory exam. He was rude and condescending. I'm surprised Mayo keeps this bad-attitude physician.
