 |  Best cardiologist ever and I've seen a few...  |  show details
Mar 28th, 2011

A surgeon referred me to Dr. Tom Hinohara after hearing about the debilitating, insulting, humiliating and inhumane treatment I experienced at the hands of another cardiologist while being hospitalized for Heart Failure and Atrial Fibrillation (afib).I am very fortunate and forever grateful to have Dr, Hinohara as my cariologist.He has been treating me for nearly two years for paroxysmal afib. From our first visit, Dr. Hinohara understood that the antiarrhythmic drugs caused me horrific side effects, and he was extremely conscientious when he created an alternate plan to treat both my afib and my concerns. He has done more than a handful of electrical cardioversions to convert my heart back into sinus rhythm. Each time I slip into afib, he makes himself available and is always thoughtful, kind and meticulously prepared. Recently, when my afip episodes became shorter in duration between cardioversions, he suggested the ablation procedure, broaching the topic with the utmost couth. Because of his rare aptitude in dealing with delicate situations and issues, I am now researching the best doctors to perform the procedure with Dr. Hinoharas full support. Unfortunately, he does not perform ablations; however I will continue to see him as my primary heart doctor.Dr, Hinohara is a superior cardiologist and an extraordinary physician. Not only is he brilliant, his bedside manner is impeccable. He makes you feel completely comfortable and at ease, he discusses all possible treatment options and is open minded to any and all new ones. Dr. Hinohara treats you as an individual and consults with you to see what solutions work best based on your case. He is phenomenally good-natured, understanding, caring, respectful, honest, organized and funny. He takes copious notes which he is happy to share with you, and since I first met him, I have always felt he was 1000% on top of my health.Dr. Hinoharas character is reflected throughout the office staff as well. Everyone - from the front desk staff to the PAs - is friendly, prompt, helpful and conscientious. I would recommend Dr. Hinohara to anyone and am confident putting my life in his hands.---Jennifer E

Dr. Hinohara was one of my cardiologist and he was always ready to answer any question my husband and I had, clear up any fears we may have had and just an all around "shoot from the hip" Dr. I very much appreciated his intelligence and input on my case. I am 47 and still going. I would like to thank Dr. Hinohara for his support.
