I am left feeling completely shaken and appalled by the rudeness of Dr. Dezzani. We went for a consultation with her and left before it was over. She was 45 minutes late to the consultation--which was ok, because I know that doctors are busy. When she did arrive she was unbelievably rude, curt, and dismissive. I would never take my child to see her, nor would I ever recommend her to someone. I will write this review on other review sites too. I would hope that no one else feels the way I do right now. Please seek another doctor if you are looking for a good one for your child.

When I first met with Dr. Dezzani, I really liked her and the facility. She was one of the few pediatricians that actually was okay with our choice not to vaccinate our daughter. The only problem I really had with her is that I felt that our visits were very rushed, always. Which made me wonder how thoroughly she had really checked my daughter out.
I saw the other two pediatrician there also. I did not like the other female Dr. at all. She brow beat me about wanting to wait to vaccinate my daughter. On another visit, I was having difficulty getting my daughter to drink enough water and asked her what she thought I could do. Her first response was basically that she didn't know, maybe popsicles or take her to the ER for an IV. Really, an IV?!?! No other less invasive ideas for a 1- year-old? Luckily my friends had some much better ideas. Also, since I was in for a sick checkup, and it was near her 12 month checkup time, I asked if they could do both since I knew that there were openings in their schedule that day. They wouldn't let me; they said I would have to bring her back another day since they were billed separately. Apparently they couldn't just bill me for both.
I met with the male Dr. once I think. I actually liked him the best, as he seemed to take his time checking her out and not rushing through everything. I loved the front office staff and the nurses were always great, but I'm looking for a new Dr. for my baby girl and wouldn't recommend Kahala Pediatrics to a friend.

I can't say enough great things about Dr. Dezzani. She's so warm and caring. The first time I met her and her staff, I knew my family would always be in good hands. They've always taken such great care of us. My children (ages 3-10) are never afraid to see Dr. Dezzani, Aunty Jean and Aunty Barb. They look forward to seeing everyone there. Mahalo to Kahala Pediatrics!

As a mother of 3, I know what it takes to be an incredible pediatrician. It took me three doctor's offices before I found Kahala Pediatrics, and I am here to stay. All of the doctors in this office are kind, understanding, and extremely knowledgeable & helpful. The staff is always kind and courteous. The head doctor, Dr. Marni Dezzani believes in treating her patients with compassion, and offers understanding to us parents. She encourages proper nutrition, caring for her patient's long term health, as well as educating us parents. I have gone to this office for annual well-child visits, sick visits, and what turned out to be an emergency visit with my infant daughter. Each and every time, regardless of what doctor we saw, we were treated with the same caring & compassion which is rare to find in such knowledgeable doctors .This is the only office in Honolulu I'd recommend to my best friends, and I trust my children's health wholeheartedly in the hands of Dr. Dezzani and her caring staff.

I believe that Kahala Pediatrics raises the bar for pediatric care in Hawaii. The doctors are exceptional and work as a team to provide the best medical care for children. The staff members are friendly, thorough, educated and highly skilled. Our daughter struggled with complex medical issues and the doctors and staff of the Kahala Pediatrics team communicated with us on a daily basis. They provided all the expertise and support we needed when our daughter was referred to a specialist. They were the backbone of the team that has successfully treated our little girl for over 3 years. Kahala Pediatrics went above and beyond what we expected to support our family and to assist us in getting our daughter well. Furthermore, we love their brand new offices which are clean, warm and inviting. Our kids love to go to the doctor! We are very grateful to the entire Kahala Pediatrics team.

Although the staff is exceptional, the doctors are subpar and dangerous. The nurses are smart, courteous, and know their job well. The receptionist is pleasant and efficient. The 3 doctors I encountered while my child was a patient there were all of low calibre. The lead doctor gave my child ""samples"" of lotion containing highly allergenic nut oils. This was suppose to ease the child's skin rashes? Made no sense. Another doctor attempted to diagnose my child based on another patient's charts. And, the third doctor lacked confidence; he seemed afraid to be there. Also, the facilities were old, unkept, and out-dated. If it weren't for the location being so convenient, I wouldn't have selected them initially. Luckily, more (much more competent) pediatricians have come to our area!
