Continuity of care – this is an area of health care that Dr. Iwaoka is passionate about. As a trained and experienced physician in the urgent care setting, Dr. Iwaoka believes that every patient has the right to receive high quality care and be seen in a timely manner. This coupled with communication with a patient’s primary care physician leads to the seamless care between various medical settings and positive outcomes for the patient.

Dr. Iwaoka chose to become a physician as he was fascinated with the area of medicine and enjoyed the opportunity to help people while also being intellectually stimulated.

According to Dr. Iwaoka, “It is important that a primary care physician is actively involved in a patient’s health care no matter the provider. By keeping a primary care physician appraised of all medical care, it allows them to serve their patient proactively and be an active player in their on-going health care.”
