Dr. Cass Nakasone replaced my right hip in October 2014. He did an excellent job. Both he and his staff are very professional. It is now nearly 5 years and my hip continues to work perfectly with no discomfort at all. Dr. Nakasone and his staff are the greatest. I definitely recommend him for a hip replacement. My knees are now starting to feel pain, I have scheduled an appointment with to Dr. Nakasone.

Dr. cass Nakasone did a total left hip replacement on me in February. The quality of my life improved dramatically! I highly recommend Dr. Nakasone. He and his many staff members run a quality program. I found absolutely no faults. I couldn't be happier with my outcome. Thank you Dr. Nakasone. I appreciate your expertise.
