Best doctor ever! Takes time to explain everything and doesn't rush you. His staff are very good especially Dave when you need paperwork filled out. During recovery time at home Dr. HAYASHI wanted to make sure your meds are working and not in pain. Very easy to talk to

Dr. Howard Hayashi did a great job on my surgery. Was back to work in no time. Great bedside manner and a truly cool guy! Ted S

I saw Dr. Hayashi for a consultation and he and his staff were very caring, communicated clearly and helped me to understand my situation. He gave me a great big hug when he came into the room and when I left. He made me feel totally at ease and I would definitely recommend him to others and return to him in the future should I need surgery. I had consulted with another doctor via phone and email who told me I needed surgery and Dr. Hayashi told me I did not and fully explained why.
