I found Dr. Yamaki and her staff to be very kind, caring, and professional. I needed a second opinion and researched robotic specialists because I didn't want scars and wanted a partial hysterectomy. I am also a type A person so I question and research everything which makes me a difficult patient. I came to her based upon my research and her reviews. Both pre and post op care was amazing and no scars! I would highly recommend her a hundred times over for care and surgery.

Dr. Yamaki delivered my daughter in 1986! She left a Yoyo Ma concert to attend to me. She was to this day, the best OB/GYN physician I have ever had! Kind, thorough, thoughtful and attentive. Just sending best wishes her way and remembering our excellent physician/patient relationship!

Some of Dr. Yamaki's staff members were extremely rude over me asking for copies of my paperwork (Karen was especially rude and unprofessional). Additionally, I had questions after my appointment and Dr. Yamaki came to the phone and was very short and rude. I won't go back to this office.

Dr. Yamaki is smart, kind, asks all the right questions, listens intently, and looks at the whole picture where health is concerned. A few years back while extremely ill with problems not of an OBYGN nature, during my routine annual appointment she ordered a blood test that led to a diagnosis my general practitioner had overlooked: a dangerous advanced-stage bacterial infection that could have killed me. Her diagnosis literally saved my life! Definitely the best doctor I've ever had!
