great listener and explainer
he was more than accommodating. I expected to have to make a return appointment for a procedure but he offered to do the procedure during my visit!
Dr. Onishi is truly one of the best! He takes his time with his patients, listens carefully, uses great technology to ascertain immediate results and I also appreciate his somewhat conservative approach.
My care under Dr. Onishi was excellent. I was impressed at his mentorship of his fellow, Dr. Bean, and how he encouraged her and monitored her so deftly. Dr. Bean did a great job and was very reassuring as well.
Dr. Onishi is arguably one of the best in his field worldwide. I consider myself very fortunate to have access to Dr. Onishi's care. I am extremely happy with my outcomes based on his insightful diagnosis and treatments.
Dr. Onishi is the best doctor I have ever had! He is a great listener and cares about his patients. He looks for long term solutions for my problems instead of superficial care.
Dr. Onishi takes time to listen to all of your concerns, and assist in finding the right solution for you. He cares not just about the issue he addresses but your overall health. He educates you about your condition and treatment options, and remains with conservative measures as long as it is helping. He really cares about his patients health and wellness all around. I would refer all concerns to him and I trust his referrals. He is highly recommended by me.
I HEART Dr. Kentario Onishi. He is highly skilled, talented, beyond knowledge and empathetic. He understands the mind of an athlete.
provider and resident were excellent!
Dr. Onishi was phenomenal and the treatment he recommended was exactly what was needed. Already seeing improvements and am excited.
Even with longer wait times to see Doc O., I feel it is worth it. He is pleasant, informative, thorough and caring. good sense of humor too.
Dr. Onishi is very professional and knowledgeable. His resident Allison was also very professional and knowledgeable when taking into consideration her experience. Dr. Onishi also did a good job of helping Allison learn from the experience and get good practice. Dr. Onishi also worked very hard to find the right specialist for me to see following my examination.
The exam & care I received from Colton, the resident & Dr. Onishi was the best I have received in a very long time. they knew my med hx, test results from other physicians, the exam on my knee, leg & hip were thorough. Dr. Onishi was patient with my questions, gave great, clear explanations & was funny. Both put me at ease.
Dr. Onishi is the best doctor I see. He listens and knows his field of expertise. He has helped get my physical problems solved each time I have seen him.
DR Onishi is EXCELLENT!!! Amazing!Super smart, listens very well and spent time with me
Dr. Onishi is the best doctor I've ever met and his staff is superb. UPMC is a step above the rest.
I was so impressed with Dr. Onishi. He was recommended by a friend for hand problems and I immediately came home and called to thank her for telling me about him. He is smart, thorough and treated me with courtesy. He even has a good sense of humor.
DR. ONISHI AND HIS STAFF ARE WONDERFUL.
Dr. Onishi and his resident Dr. Schroeder explained the procedure carefully. After care instructions could have been a bit more precise.
Excellent provider, professional, communicates information, listens to questions and provides answers that are easy to understand. Explains procedures and the reason for making particular choices.
the dr was very informative and cared about my concerns
Dr. Onishi is an excellent provider. He is professional, took his time with me, and went above and beyond to help me with my issue. I have recommended him to my friends and will continue to.

dr Oshini is awesome!!!
Dr. Onishi is one of the best doctors are I have come across. He's fun, funny, professional. I love him.
his expertise is awesome
Dr. Onishi was professional, cordial, and interested in my health and well-being.
very good experience. Dr Onish was very good listener and knows what he is doing. excellent doctor highly recommend him.
Dr. Onishi took plenty of time to discuss my injury, to examine the injury, and to discuss treatment options. He is the first doctor who has created a treatment plan for me and is clearly extremely knowledgeable about treatment methods. I'm very thankful I've found him!
The doctor goes between offices and there were occasions where I had trouble with scheduling as the people at the front desk would continue to refer me to different people saying "we don't schedule for him" or "you have to go to/call this office to schedule"...after getting the run around multiple time, I drove to all the offices until someone helped me (Jan and Amy who were awesome). Other than the ridiculous run around with scheduling, I would hands down travel anywhere to see Dr. Onieshi. He's amazing at what he does, personable, and helpful.
Dr. Onishi is very expert and was able to relate an ultrasound that he did to my condition, explain treatment options, and offer prognosis.
very pleased with overall experience. evaluation was very complete. did PT eval without us having an appointment at the physician's request.
Dr. O is hands down not only the best PM&R doctor I have seen, he is the best sports-health care provider I have seen. He is so in tune with my needs as a athlete. He thinks way outside of the box which is precisely inline with my thinking. I am grateful to have started to see him recently
I made an appt with Dr. Onishi due to his expertise and reputation as an excellent Dr. for treating sports injuries.
Dr. Onishi takes time to diagnosis problems in my knees that I would not receive from any other provider due to the inability to have an MRi. w/o the sonogram I would have no idea of the condition of my knees.
Dr. Onishi was very informative and knowledgeable of my situation and the possibilities for care.
Dr. Onishi was excellent. He thoroughly went through my medical history and listened to my concerns. He was willing to help me and not dismiss my options about what is going on with my foot as previous doctors have done.
excellent care, exceptional provider
Despite not being a back specialist, Dr. Onishi graciously agreed to see me for pain that I believed was caused by a previous muscle/tendon tear near my spine. He performed ultrasound over the area and didn't see anything of major significance and his explanation was very reassuring. Also, his knowledge of the intricacies of spinal anatomy was very impressive considering it was generally outside his area of expertise. I am grateful to UPMC for having doctors like Dr. Onishi.
Dr Onishi is an amazing physician. When you talk he really listens. I would strongly recommend him.
Dr. Onishi is excellent. It takes awhile to get an appointment, and there is a bit of a wait when you do go. However, he takes time with you, is very thorough, and knows his stuff. His suggestions to me had a positive effect on my foot problem.
This was a wonderful experience. Doctor Onishi is knowledgeable and, as a runner, completely empathetic regarding such injuries. He spent a great deal of time with me and that was terrific. Needless to say, I only wish that I could have seen him at earlier date but he is busy for a reason; his care.
Excellent care provided on this visit.
Dr Onishi was very caring and listened to my concerns. I would definitely go to him again.
Had a good visit and received information i needed. Doctor was confused about exactly how to go about my condition because he never saw it before. It was a little bit confusing determining my next steps to get testing and treatment for my issue.
Dr. Onishi was thorough in his evaluation. He was respectful and courteous. He figured out what was going on and has prescribed a treatment plan for a path to recovery.
Great care provider. Really interested in the patient's outcome.
Could not have asked for a better physician! Dr Onishi was brilliant. Amazing "bedside manner" and very thorough.
a wonderful provider. His expertise was the answer to my prayers. A great listener, calm, very attentive. so pleased!
very knowledgeable man,gentle and courteous doctor
Did not tell me whether heat or ice would help & I did not think to ask. I did ask if I should do long walks.
service and Doctor is the best
Dr. Onishi was very accessible and patient. Unfortunately he did not have access to one of the key tests he needed to evaluate my condition, as that test did not make it into the UPMC database for me. I asked that Dr. Onishil obtain that test (an EMG) from another UPMC doctor I've seen who had a copy of the test results and let me know whether that changed his theory of the source of my condition. I am waiting to hear back from him.
the wait to see the doctor was extremely long probably about an hour but it was worth the wait. I am very pleased with Dr. Onishi's patience and experience and knowledge
He offered a multistep nonsurgical approach to a longstanding knee problem/pain.
Dr. Onishi is a wonderful physician.
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.
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 Onishi is a FABULOUS doctor!!! VERY THOROUGH!!!
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!
I had an excellent experience with Dr. Onishi. He answered all questions, explained what he saw when he reviewed the ultrasound of my foot and why the procedure would be helpful to relieve my symptoms.

listens very well, has been the only doctor in 28 yrs to take my back issue serious. I'm beyond grateful
Excellent physician. Really takes the time to get to know you and explain your condition, treatment options, and prognosis.
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 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 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!
