Had no clue what I had and never reviewed his notes nor pathology report. I had to ask him to look at report from tests that were costly. Waste of time, money and a life long scar on leg.

Many thanks to Dr Murakawa and his assistant Donna who has been seeing my daughter for the last five years. My daughter is now feeling and doing a lot better. Can't thank them enough for taking the time to work out all her various issues always fitting us in when we had an emergency. Dr Murakawa was very patient with us so we could understand her condition I have no hesitation in referring him.

I've been seening Dr. Murakawa for 5 years & assist Donna (beautiful technic & tender), for a skin disease he's very knowledgeable and breaks things down in layment terms. He's in and he's out yes, but he answers your question & do listen to your concerns & give you options the wait for him is never longer then 20 minutes and he's well worth the wait beautiful staff & a miracle or miracle in waiting!! You just can't please everybody some people are not satify no matter what you do you judge.

Please do not visit this doctor he SCAMS his customers by committing insurance fraud billing for services he nor his staff performed. I was going to this particular doctor for about 2 1/2 years when I realized that something was off with my bill. After weeks & several phone calls the biller Paul finally agreed to send me statements with exact services & prices which is when I realized I had been scammed out of over a thousand dollars for services I've never ever received. Currently suing

He is not even ready to spend time to listen to patient problem. He dint give any reason for the problem. He just informed nurse to give some medicine and was gone in a minute. Felt very bad with his behavior. Will not be going to him again.

Highly recommended by former Doc, who retired. He explained what he would do to remove some Basil Cell spots, for testing. Checked my body for more spots needing attention. Very professional and reassuring.
