I was operated on by Dr. Kuwada for tongue cancer in December. I had no risk factors and he immediately saw me and performed surgery. Not only is he at the top of his field but he cares about his patients, their families, your full recovery. He is calm and caring. I believe that he saved my life and I recommend him without hesitation. I could have gone to any cancer center in the country but I am so blessed to have him in our state. Recommend without hesitation.

Dr. Kuwada is simply the best physician our family ever encountered during my husband's almost 3.25-year journey with a serious illness. Dr. Kuwada treated him as though he was a family member, exuded the utmost professionalism and care, including emotionally. We know he spent off-hours considering options for my husband. He also took the time to discuss complicated topics in-depth, even if they took longer periods of his time or required emergency appointments. Our family is indebted to him.

I went to Dr. Kuwada for a relatively routine procedure, but he performed it with such skill and perfection that I would trust him for problems much more complicated and consequential.
