The doctor exceeded my expectations with up to date scientific acumen, listening skills and professionalism.
I've been looking for a doctor like Dr Onishi for a long time. He didn't rush through the first appt and did a thorough exam vs looking locally. It is also wonderful that he is a runner too so understood my pain in a way and wanted to get me back up on my feet. Dr Onishi was kind, funny, has an excellent bedside manner and seems to have a gift for helping people. He's provided solutions to hopefully avoid surgery which is a road I hope to not go on. I have yet to reach out to him with follow up questions so am not sure of his responsiveness but for the first time I actually believe I will get better under Dr Onishi's care. He's given me hope.
Took a special interest in my specific case, regardless of the general population norms/usual findings. He took the time to assess me thoroughly, and answered my questions. Dr. Onishi (and his assistant and fellows) were kind and caring and I LOVED how thorough they were when trying to understand my medical history. They were realistic with the next steps forward with treatment, and they did not try to make me believe something just to use another "modality" of treatment.
Dr Onishi is a great professional, knowledgeable and caring.
When I discuss Dr. Ken, I am not concerned with anything but how excellent a physician. You at UPMC are very fortunate to have him on staff.. Let's face it people of my age group have knee problems. I have recommend ed him many time, and EVERY one of him say he is the very best. Period. Time and material have nothing to do with a appointment with him
excellent care from. Dr. Onishi his team. beautiful facility.
Everyone I met worked well together. They worked as an effective team.
I was very please with the doctors that worked with me very professionalI'll definitely go back for those providers
He was very professional, thorough, understanding, and sympathetic to my problem. He was very knowledgeable and honest about my condition(s) after a thorough physical and ultrasound exam. He recommended several choices for treatment to relieve some of the symptoms and pain I'm suffering. I was impressed.
very caring and extremely knowledgeable
My experience with this appointment was outstanding. It exceeded all of my expectations. I feel the evaluation and treatment that I received was exceptional.
Dr Onishi is a FABULOUS doctor!!! VERY THOROUGH!!!
Very thorough. Explained things very clearly. Treated me respectfully and like an educated person who is capable of understanding medical information when explained in layman's terms.
Dr. Onish is, hands down, the best sports doctor I have ever seen (and I have seen a lengthy list over the course of the past 10 years). Extremely knowledgeable, passionate and patient, I couldn't be more thankful to have him as a provider.
It was a very helpful experience as I was able to receive a diagnosis and plan of treatment that I feel confident and comfortable with. The Doctor's knowledge and experience in his field and as a runner gave me assurance that the planned treatment is the best and most proactive approach that I can take to get me back on my feet. I am a competitive runner for my age and feel confident that I'm following the right plan to still consider reaching my future goals within a reasonable amount of time. I feel that I am in the best of care with the plan and all my interaction with Dr. Onishi.

UPMC is very fortunate to have the expertise of Dr.Onishi. He has been most helpful in treating my tendinitis. My case is complex and he has been patient and attentive to every detail. He always devotes plenty of time to me at each visit, even when I know he is very busy.
Both my husband and myself have commented many times of the excellent care I have recieved from Dr. Onishi abd his entire staff. Never have had a complaint with my many visits!

Excellent physician. Really takes the time to get to know you and explain your condition, treatment options, and prognosis.
Dr. Onishi is an excellent provider. He examined me thoroughly for the reason for the visit, asked me questions and listened to my concerns. I am really glad I had the opportunity to choose him for this visit.
Dr. Onishi is great! This most recent visit, I was getting another injection in my knee. Dr. Onishi knows from my last two that I don't do well with having needles in me. Although I normally talk with my mom on the phone, Dr. Onishi also converses with me and my mom to keep me distracted while he does the injection.
Dr. Onishi was very nice and seemed knowledgeable, however it's soon to decide if I have been treated with my health issue.
Dr. Onishi is wonderful!

Dr. Onishi did an amazing job identifying my injury and coming up with a plan to fix it
very positive experience dr.onishi and staff are outstanding
The doctor was kind and understanding. He didn't explain why he chose prolotherapy instead of PRP or what my options are if this shot doesn't work. I liked him very much and gave me some hope.
Dr Onishi is a very caring doctor and explains all questions asked of him. Probably one of the best doctors UPMC has in their network.
Dr. Onishi and his assistant Jessica amaze me. It is always incredible to watch him work and listen to how he explains things to both myself and his students. He takes what is terribly confusing and makes it understandable and then gives me real options for my care. He also gives me hope as well as pain reduction and Improvement in movement capabilities.
very good listening skills!
I had to wait this time for 1 hr. and 35min., not acceptable.
Dr. was extremely knowledgeable, took time to understand what I had to say, and provided options so that I was part of the decision making process.
I travel to this office because of the excellent care I receive from everyone. I didn't have an appointment with dr. oneshi that day, but they fit me into their schedule. I was very thankful for that. I had an appointment with dr. ho n she spoke with him. this saved me an additional 2' trip back for an app't. I was appreciative for this. thanks to everyone there.
good explanations of the plan of care and reasons for the physical disability that I experience.
Dr and Staff are wonderful. top notch care.
The Dr. is very polite, knowledgable and a good listener and educator. He listened carefully and explained to me all the options available for me and the health of my ankle. I was very pleased
DR. Onisi & Staff were excellent. My previous care giver was Dr. Giamitorio at upmc South Side Isaw her for the same treatment. I need these shots every 3-6 months I was never notified when she left.
all dr.s and staff at upmc lemieux center are great, caring, excellent, very caring people
very pleased w/the progress I've made w/my hip condition since dr Wright referred me to dr anishi approx. 1 year ago.
I haven't had a doctor that listened/explained/understood me so well since the "olden days." On my first visit, Dr. Onishi walked into the exam room prepared, having had studied my records. He also was prepared with three options for my care, explaining each one clearly. He answered all my questions. I didn't feel rushed.
This guy is incredible. He is probably saving the uPMC health system millions of dollars by his spot on diagnostic abilities instead of wasting money on MRI studies etc. I hope his skills are recognized by his boss.
Over the last year i have seen this provider numerous times. Not just the first visit, but every visit Dr. Onishi takes his time to listen to my concerns, discusses options and offers his opinion as to how I should proceed. I have never had a physician who is so compassionate, caring, and so skilled as Dr. Onishi! If I were able to give him an Above and Beyond Award I would. I see how he interacts with all of his staff and patients and it is clear that every day he goes above and beyond!
This Dr is someone that is about the highest I can rate for his concern for his patient. I spent 3 hours on my first visit with him. Next visit was half hour visit before procedure was done. He definitely cares about his patients.
I was very happy with the visit. Dr. Onishi had reviewed by chart carefully before my appointment, and made sure that he understood my condition and concerns. He answered my questions, and provided me with several treatment options
Dr. Onishi is very attentive and forward-thinking, plus he has a great sense of humor, which makes you feel at ease. I am very happy with the care he has provided for my condition... other doctors have not been able to help me.
highest level of care.
They were very attentive to my concerns and thorough in the examination.
Dr. Onishi was thoughtful, caring and interested when meeting with me & with my husband. He gave us a lot of time and concentration, and provided other resources & options to help solve my medical problems.
We were an hour late because we got lost and the doctor was able to see us & took plenty of time to explain everything.
Excellent experience. Very competent, professional and friendly provider. Showed concern for my problem, discussed options and gave recommendations. I would give this provider the highest rating possible.

All of my experiences with doctor Onishi have been quite positive I believe he is a excellent doctor who is well informed in his area of medicine and has attempted to provide me with the best care possible.
He did not rush me and spent a lot of time with me.
Dr Onishi is a wonderful doctor. He takes time to explain all your options and what to expect from your treatments. He understands your concerns and does all he can to help you find the best solution to your health issue.
Always good experiences with Dr. Onishi. If one procedure doesn't work we talk about the next idea.
Dr Onishi has been the only dr I have visited in the past 7 months who actually took the time and listened to all my symptoms before diagnosis. He is the only dr who seemed to care about my pain and problems I'm having.
very professional, very pleased!
Dr Onishi, Treated my leg for a level 10 pain that had persisted for eight months. After his treatment my pain was gone.

He is the consummate Healer/Dr. He takes as much time as needed to both practice his medicine and involve you (the patient) in the process.
dr Onishi is an exceptional an caring doctoryou don't run into people like that very much
Dr. Onishi is an excellent physician.
Everything connected with Dr. Onishi goes well. He listens well and talks appropriately with me so that I understand. I like his "bedside" manner, sense of humor, and his interest in my medical issues. Above all, I expect to have my medical issue corrected under his direction/care.
He respects my intelligence, explains procedures and options thoroughly, and does incredible work
Dr. Onishi's attentiveness and knowledge are second to none.
