Does not take time to carefully listen and evaluate patients. Patients are in and out like cattle. If you get 15 minutes with him, consider yourself lucky. Will not refer to another, more specialized cardiologist, even when asked. His most preferred phrase seems to be, "You must live with it. This is the response rather than really trying to correctly diagnose and treat. Communication skills are dismal.

The doctor is a skilled physician excellent at what he does. Dr. Matsuura talks to referring physicians not to the patient in front of him. He revealed little information to me after a stress test. He told me he noted some irregularities and would send a report to my primary physician. I wound up getting an Angiogram from him on O'ahu which turned out clear. His communication style was consistent with the style when I got the stress test. Much more skilled at cardiology than communication.
