Specialties

Dr. Brian K Sugimoto has the following 2 specialties

  • Family Medicine

    A family practitioner is a doctor who specializes in caring for people of all ages, at all stages of life. Rather than focusing on the treatment of one disease or patient population, family practitioners are often the doctors that people see for their everyday ailments, like cold and flu or respiratory infections, and health screenings. When necessary, family practitioners will provide referrals for conditions that require the expertise of another specialist.
    The doctors may also provide physicals, inoculations, prenatal care, treat chronic diseases, like diabetes and asthma, and provide advice on disease prevention.

  • Emergency Medicine

    An emergency physician is a doctor who is an expert in handling conditions of an urgent and extremely dangerous nature. These specialists work in the emergency room (ER) departments of hospitals where they oversee cases involving cardiac distress, trauma, fractures, lacerations and other acute conditions.
    Emergency physicians are specially trained to make urgent life-saving decisions to treat patients during an emergency medical crisis. These doctors diagnose and stabilize patients before they are either well enough to be discharged, or transferred to the appropriate department for long-term care.

Amaziging Dr. Couldn't ask for a better doctor

Dr sugimoto has been my ob/gyn and family dr since 2010. He is amazing. He's funny and caring, makes me feel very comfortable every visit. Although he is extremely busy & hard to get an appointment with, I would not change drs in a million years. His MA Debbie is wonderful!!! I am very happy I am able to be seen by the two of them. With my last 2 births 2010& 2011 he was not able to deliver the babies. I really hope he is able to deliver this last one. :) Great job doctor !!!

He is the best!

As a former resident of the hospital it was said he was one of the best "to go through". My experience working alongside him in the ICU and being his patient has me a believer.

Five Stars

Dr. Sugimoto is too busy and has too many patients. But I don't want to be the patient he has to let go of, so I completely understand. He is a great Dr. and we are lucky to have him in this town. His MA is great also.

Great Dr. overall

Eventhough Dr. Sugimoto is a family practitioner his knowledge and abilities are more than the regular practicing Dr. After my pain management specialist left the area, I called around looking for a Dr. that can give trigger point injections. I found one, Dr. Sugimoto, and he let me keep all my medications. A friend found another Dr. that did not give injections, and slashed her meds so bad that she has little quality to her life. If not for her kids and grandkids, I think she would check out. I was very lucky to find Dr. Sugimoto.
