I’ve had a couple of surgeries by Dr. Sakamoto. Hes very efficient a explains things very well. My only disappointment is he didn’t help more with getting me into a pain clinic after he operated.It would’ve been nice to set up a pain management referral so I could transfer from his care to another for chronic pain. The pain I was having did go away after surgery however new pains have set in. Horrific. I don’t know if its from his surgery or not. My legs are so bad they shake at night and I fall
