Specialties

Dr. Sam R Shimamoto has the following 2 specialties

  • Pediatrics

    A pediatrician is a doctor who specializes in the regular care of children, as well as the diagnosis and treatment of illness in children. Young patients are often more complicated to treat because they are still growing and developing.
    While pediatricians may sub-specialize in specific therapy areas like oncology, surgery, ophthalmology, and anesthesiology, in general, pediatricians provide services like vaccinations, health exams, and treatment of common ailments and injuries. In addition, pediatricians are trained to handle the complex emotional and behavioral issues faced by children, especially during puberty.
    Pediatricians normally see their patients from birth until the age of 18, although some may agree to treat patients into their early 20s, if requested.

Caring Dr. ECELLENT communicator!

Dr. Shimamoto was so kind with my daughter at our appointment. He took the time to explain in detail what I needed to know and answered all of the questions I had for him. I left the appointment with a print out of everything he said to me! I have great confidence in Dr Shimamoto and would highly recommend him as a Pediatric Allergist.

Wonderful Doctor

We have seen Dr Shimamoto for the 3 past years now and he is one of the most thorough doctors I have ever dealt with. We were referred to him after my son had issues come up with bloodwork possibly indicating an immunology issue. Dr Shimamoto explains everything in detail and takes the time to make sure you understand everything. I would highly recommend him.

Amazing with my Toddler!

Dr. Shimamoto's bedside manner, professionalism, and knowledge are top notch! My 18 month old son is terrified of doctors and Dr. Shimamoto seemed to read him like a book; he's the first doctor to ever take time to interact with my child until he felt comfortable before beginning an exam. In addition, he truly listens to what you have to say; spending an hour with us to get the full picture of my son's medical history. He is very knowledgeable in his field and presents information in a basic, yet concise and understandable way. I cannot recommend him more highly! Other reviews have commented on the wait to get in to see him; there is a reason! After experiencing his care first hand I can understand why his services are in such high demand and would gladly wait for that initial appointment. And once you're an established patient, scheduling is easy and same day appointments are available as needed.
