Brooklyn, NY |
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
