It has been about 4 years since I had my TURP..Dr Matsunaga was very patient with me..I felt very comfortable. Excellent Doctor..No problem. Now I go to the bath room. No leakage, no pads, I should have done the procedure a long time ago. Thank you Dr. Matsunaga
Woodland Hills, CA |
I would highly recommend Dr. Matsunaga. He was a good listener, answered all my questions and my surgery went very well.
in Manhattan Beach, CA |
Dr. Matsunaga and his staff were supportive, positive and worked hard to make sure my needs were met when I had an urgent situation. I would definitely recommend them.
This surgeon has poor follow through left a tumor that he was aware of during my first surgery and rescheduled my second surgery multiple timesdie to being on vacation. This surgeon also provided little information and feedback and needed to be prompted to look at my incision from my surgery. I don't trust that he provided the best care that one should have.
