    As a physician I can confidently say that Brent Kobashi exemplifies all the best qualities of a healer. He is up-to-date and well-informed listens well provides considered guidance while providing a rational discussion of alternative approaches and shows warmth and kindness. A truly unique and special provider. I feel blessed to have him as my family's primary provider.

    I Feel Great and very grateful with Dr. Kobashi's dedication to taking care of my medical issues and concerns during the many years that he is my primary care provider. I just wish that the team of medical providers at the Emergency Department at the UCSF-Parnassus Campus are as dedicated as Dr. Kobashi. Because of my unsatisfactory experience with the service at the UCSF-ER-Parnassus Campus I decided to get all my urgent care at a Sutter Health Hospital-CPMC where I receive much better care.
