Dr. Yamada was very professional with some humanity. Everything you would want in a urologist. Very knowledgeable in his field. For the answers that were less than perfect: Scheduling urgent appointments: He is very busy so same day appointments are difficult. But urgent as in must go to hospital to look at patient for urgent reasons I am sure would be Excellent. Office environment, Very Good. Cleanliness, Excellent. Comfort, Good. That is why the total is only Very Good.
