Your trust is our top concern.

We strive to keep the reviews trustworthy, honest & fair.

We monitor all reviews to ensure they comply with our guidelines and don’t include personal information, profanity, libel, defamation, harassment, obscenity or fraud.

All reviews are confirmed and audited before publication, and community members have the ability to flag inappropriate content for further review by our team.

Doctors can not pay for good reviews, nor can they pay to have negative reviews removed.

Any reviews that are deemed fraudulent or violate our guidelines will be removed immediately.

Cannot recommend Dr. Yamamoto and his staff highly enough. He performed a third procedure for me following two prior ones by other surgeons that failed. His was a total success. Highly professional, on-point and competent.

Dr. Yamamoto performed TURP surgery and also removed 3 large stones in bladder and prostate. Highly successful, my urinary tract now functions like 30 years ago! Additionally, Dr. Yamamoto is a very compassionate listener who inspires great confidence. All possible kudo's!

I've been a patient of Dr. Yamamoto's since I was diagnosed with kidney stones & he surgically removed them in October 2019. Today's visit to his office was for a yearly check-up & everything went very well. I am alway very comfortable & satisfied with the medical and personalized care Dr. Yamamoto provides. The surgery/treatment he rendered was successful (I've not had any more kidney stones since that surgery) and he always has outstanding "bed-side manner"!

Dr. Yamamoto treated me like I was a car going into the shop for an oil change. If you are looking for a caring physician that you can feel comfortable discussing treatment with, look elsewhere. I wasn't given the opportunity to ask any of my questions. He was jaded, curt and obviously needs a sabbatical.

Dr Yamamoto is not just talented. He is also a comforting professional with a demeanor and personality that should be the template for all in his field. He made me confident of a good outcome and comfortable prior to and after surgery. Feeling relaxed and feeling sure about your surgeon is a big plus. The doc is a 10 out of 10 with me.
