In memory of mom Nov 18 2022

Review for Dr. Sugihara

My 80plus years old mom was seen by Dr Uemura for compression fracture. He listened to our concerns, explained in plain words of the conditions and prescribed necessary medications. He’s very knowledgeable of the medical conditions and various medications. I would highly recommend him.
