She really cares about her patients as people, not just treating a disease. I have been seeing her since 1998. Difficult to find such a good doctor. Once with the patient, her attention is on you. Her office staff is also great.

 |  "Dr. Midori Nishio is a fabulous Rheumatologist"! says a Registered Nurse  |  show details
by Laurie Paulsen, R.N., M.S.N. on May 7th, 2010

Over the past 20 years, I have been to several Rheumatologists in the Bay Area.Dr. Midori Nishio tops them all!She has treated me for Fibromyalgia, chronic pain from a car accident, bursitis in the shoulder and hip.She also, has been very skilled in diagnosing the cause of my chronic and acute pain. She really listens to you, more than any Dr. I've every gone to. She is extremely intelligent and can think "out of the box"- that is, she doesn't just practice medicine "from a Medical text book". She will spend time with you and answer your questions. She gives you several choices of treatment.She is not a "pain pill pusher". Her goal is to decrease your pain without quickly handing you a pain pill Rx.As a Registered Nurse for 30 years, I choose my doctors very carefully and evaluate them comprehensively. Dr. Midori Nishio is one of the most competent and kind physicians that I've met in my entire Nursing career.Thank You Dr. Nishio!Laurie Paulsen, R.N., M.S.N.Walnut Creek, CA

Dr. Nishio is a fantastic doctor because she treats the person, not only the disease. The reason there is a wait for your appointment is that she spends the necessary time to treat each patient completely. She really cares for her patient and patient's life quality. Many diseases in Rheumatology will not kill you. However, they can make life quite difficult and painful. Dr. Nishio wants her patients to have a good quality of life. Please do choose another doctor so her practice does not fill up.
