Dr. Azuma treated both of my parents during their separate battles with cancer. I could not ask for a better doctor or more caring person to have treated them. I hope we never have need of his services again, but would trust him implicitly should that ever be the case.

He treated my terminally ill, elderly mother like garbage. He was a bully, never explained things clearly and ignored her after she finally agreed to chemo that she didn’t even want. Find someone else to take your loved one to, so sad she had to deal with guy. No bedside manner, definitely in the wrong profession.
