I saw Dr. Matsuoka for Noise Induced Hearing Loss where time is of the essence to start medication to preserve hearing.. His schedule was very busy but saw me. I am so grateful! He is a very kind, caring doctor. I will refer my friend to him for dizziness. His Physician Assistant, Kristen, was wonderful as well who really took her time to listen to my medical history. His nurse, Liz, alerted him to my special emergency circumstances. Thank you all!!!

Dr. Matsuoka listens from patient's perspective. Not only he expresses his concerns, he resolves situation by trying different angles. A doctor with great communication well based on his professional knowledge. Margot Wang, Chicago

Dr. Matsuoka is a rock star! From the moment I met him and his staff I knew things were going to get better. He took the time to listen and was extremely concerned and determined to help me get better. I had been to 3 doctors before him and all 3 had basically told me there was nothing they could do and that I would have to just put up with my condition. I never write reviews but feel that he went above and beyond to help me and felt that writing a positive review is the least I could do.
