DO NOT RECOMMEND. Had an appt for an endoscopy because had been experiencing acute stomach issues. Arrived and was told that appt had been cancelled. Did NOT receive a call cancelling appt. Receptionist said Minami looked at file and determined appt wasn’t needed. ?!?! Was referred to him by two different doctors! He would not take 5 mins to explain why he cancelled appt. Couldn't have been treated with less respect. Awful experience.

I am still stunned. I had an appointment with Dr, Minami. Referred by my ob-gyn, and with an infectious disease and neurologist saying that I should see a gastro. Dr. Minami had excellent referrals from my oncologist, so I was really hopeful he could help. I got there a bit early and the receptionist said my appointment had been canceled. No, the doctor won't see me. Why? "Because of the diagnosis" What diagnosis? she could not elaborate. Can I have a courtesy 5 minutes to talk? No. So I left.

He has been treating my ulcerative colitis for the past 32 years. He takes into consideration my overall physical heath and is specific with options of treatment.
