Many thanks to Dr. Yamada and his staff. My husband had an incident yesterday that scared us. After a trip to the fire station and a tentative all clear. We called the office in the morning. Dr. Yamada reacted immediately. He got my husband in for blood work, an echocardiogram and an appointment. The incident turned out to be likely caused by dehydration. We breathed a sigh of relief and have made a commitment to being more attentive. Our entire family slept soundly last night. Knowledgeable, diligent and caring, we are so lucky to have Dr. Yamada as our doctor. You would be too...a special mahalo to his amazing staff.

Dr. Yamada is a brilliant, caring, and responsive doctor who ALSO has created a uniquely outstanding office environment with a superb team. Here’s an example of that great level of compassion and care: About a week after my last appointment with Dr. Yamada, I had a question which I relayed to him through his office staff. Later that same day, his wonderful nurse Katherine called me and explained, in thorough and clear detail, Dr. Yamada’s answer and what she had done to follow up on my behalf. Now that is a great doctor with a top rate staff!

I first saw Dr. Yamada after a fallow up with my Dr. after going to the ER for a possible heart attack. In my first visit to Dr. Yamada he explained to me the function of the heart in detail. He conducted some text and saw that the function of my heart was normal and that was nothing wrong with my heart. I trusted him because my wife also has seen Dr. Yamada and he has taken good care of her and her condition that was fixed and been monitor by him. The staff is very friendly, caring and up to date with his recommendation with his practice.

I've been a patient for more than 10 years. The doctor's focus on detailed analysis and advanced preventative medicine has been a great and essential part of medical care for me and my spouse. The office staff has always been friendly, competent, responsive and extremely patient focused. The doctor is particularly adept at explaining symptoms, procedures and suggested actions to maintain or improve cardiac health. I would highly recommend him to anyone needing cardiac care or monitoring.
