You will not find a better neuro-oncologist, absolutely impossible. Dr. Iwamoto is compassionate, takes his time even though he is very busy, but most importantly he is knowledgeable and on the frontline in the fight against brain cancer. I could go on and on. Do not hesitate to put Dr. Iwamoto at the top of your list if you or a loved one gets the devastating diagnosis of brain cancer.

We recently had our first visit with Dr. Iwamoto. Although I cannot judge his professional knowledge, he did spend enough time with us, telling us about issue, the treatment. He also spent enough time answering our questions and addressing our concerns. He is frank but not blunt. We are thankful that we met him

Dr Iwamoto is an outstanding physician and all round human being. He balances the need to provide reassurance and practice evidence-based medicine, with a rare ability to seek out new treatments that sometimes require an element of risk. He respects the people he treats and doesn't pretend to have all the answers. I believe I am fortunate to have him treating me.

Dr. Fabio Iwamoto is attentive to his patients needs. He is very intune to the entire betterment of the person. He cares listens and learns about the persons family needs as well as what will be best for his patient. He always puts his patients first. He also recognizes that his patients family members also have information to share. He is careful and unrushed. He may have a lobby full of patients but makes you feel that you are the only one. I have never had such a wonderful doctor in my family
