No one really wants to have that area examined but Dr Sakamoto is always in a good mood and always has me laughing by the time I leave the office.

he called me back on call for his partner who took care of me for a cancer...this Sakamoto person was so rude to me! I did end up having this relate to my first problem, which he said I should have never called him for, said it was not related, he was scary with me on the phone, verbally abusive!
