I highly recommend Dr. Hisa Yamaguchi and her staff at Eastside Surgical Associates to anyone seeking a General Surgeon and Breast Specialist. Dr. Yamaguchi and her staff were very professional, compassionate, respectful and understanding. Dr. Yamaguchi took the time to explain the process, answer all questions and provided me with The Comprehensive Patient Navigation Guide, Breast Cancer Treatment Handbook. Dr. Yamaguchi and her staff treated me with care and respect. Dr. Yamaguchi and staff handled all the arrangements for the upcoming surgery and treatment by setting up consultations with the Oncologist, Radiologist and the Plastic and Reconstructive Surgeons. I thank God for Dr. Yamaguchi and her Staff of Eastside Surgical Associates.

I found Eastside Surgical Associates to be very professional from my first contact, through my surgery and to my final appointment. The staff and Dr. Yamaguchi always took the time to answer my questions and address my concerns. I was very impressed with Dr. Yamaguchi prior to my surgery when she walked me step by step through the procedure and explained every aspect of it. I strongly recommend this group if surgical questions or procedures are needed.

This surgeon and her practice set the bar high for other physician and surgeons' practices to obtain! She is caring, extremely competent and very professional. She and her office go the extra mile to make sure you do not feel like your just a person to "hurry up and go on to the next patient" type of practice. Her office staff is very caring, personable and knowledgeable and will walk you through every process to make sure you are comfortable. How refreshing to be treated as a person!

Dr Yamaguchi was my mother's surgeon for breast cancer several years ago & I see her now as well when necessary. I had to come in last week for an issue. I had short wait & she answered all of my questions & I did not feel rushed. Her staff scheduled a future procedure for me at the hospital & called me that afternoon with date/time. She is very kind & professional & I would highly recommend.

I first met Dr. Yamaguchi in spring of 2018. She performed my surgery in July, and has been part of my ongoing care team since. I wish I could properly express how much my husband and I appreciate her and what a wonderful, caring physician she is. I have such trust in her. She has offered me kindness and comfort when I felt scared and brokenhearted. Not only has she shown care for me as the patient, she has shown care for my husband as well. I'm so grateful to have her on my team!

I liked the NO nonsense approach She displays in diagnosing your health issue yet showing compassion and concern and making you feel comfortable being with Her. Her Assistant Nancy Lucas, is equally compassionate and very helpful especially with questions to be answered over the telephone.
