Guardians of the Injured
Established in 1990, WorkStar’s mission is to be the Guardian of the Injured for the people of Hawaii. Our objective is to effectively treat injured workers, auto accident victims, and chronic pain patients with the utmost care and compassion to help them return to a functional and fulfilling life.
WorkStar staff have over 100 years of occupational and industrial injury experience with 25,000 closed claims and a 95% “Excellence Rating”. We assist employers & insurance carriers in the management of workers’ compensation injury recovery & associated costs. By nature, injuries are complex, causing as many as one in four to be misdiagnosed. And, since approximately 50% of workers’ compensation cost goes toward disability benefits, time is money.
“Early and accurate diagnosis improves patients’ outcomes whilst reducing the overall cost related with the accident”
What Our Patients Say
Dr. Himmelmann is one of the most caring doctors that I have seen. I am 65 years old, and he practically cured my chronic back pains. I highly recommend him to anyone.

Keep up the good work. You're all very caring and very professional in doing your jobs. I always look forward to coming here because you guys always give "encouragement" and "hope" to get a lot better (even though I'm down and in pain). Doc you have a good team, keep it up!Thank you so much.
Hey WorkStar! I am extremely impressed and satisfied with the level of knowledge, compassion, patience and time that your professional team of health care providers spent with me. I fell at work and injured my lower back. Your expertise in pain management and comprehensive physical rehabilitation helped me accomplish my goal of getting back to work and earning a living for me and my family. God bless.

Thank you and your staff for a willingness to assist my employees and my company with immediate response to work related injuries. Your personal knowledge and experience has been timely and to say the least refreshing in an industry with so much inefficiency and arrogance.

Dear Doctor Tang and Staff, Thank you for all your patience and understanding towards my healthcare. I’m doing my best to recover as soon as possible. With this pain, I’ve had to ice my neck, head and arm a lot. You all do good work at WorkStar, helping so many people. Thank you for your concern and passion! Appreciation and Love.
I fell from a moving truck at work as a painter and luckily found Workstar. At a time when my future health and livelihood was in question, I found that not only medically at Workstar, but also personally through countless therapy visits at their therapy center, that in retrospect, both were pivotal in my healing process. I now own my own painting company, and I am completely convinced that I could not have done it without them. Workstar in its entirety, from the first person you see as you walk in, to the experienced and caring doctors, all the way to the happy faces that schedule your next appointment on your way out.. all of you kept me full of hope.. I'm just happy I get to share this with you all here. Thank you Workstar, I couldnt have done it without you! Aloha!
I just want to say thank you so much to WorkStar. You folks helped us numerous times after our auto accident when our primary physician couldn’t. I fell secure knowing that I can bring my husband in when he needed and see doctors who really give that extra 110%!!!
