Dr Tanabe is serious yet fun to talk with about a not so fun subject! He is very professional and listens well! He heard my concerns and had no issue with doing my procedure at the hospital rather than his own facility! His concern was for my safety and comfort I needed an endoscopy as well as colonoscopy and he made it so easy! Thank you for your expertise and concern Dr Tanabe! I’ll never worry again about either of these procedures again! Glad Hawaii has your services!!

I have never met a physician who could not even fake a caring attitude. He admitted that he had not read my records when I appeared for my first visit. I doubt he ever did. Following my procedures, he did not even bother to email or call me. Instead, he had 3 members of his staff contact me at different times. None of these individuals seem to know what they were talking about and seemed to be reading from a script. I never got an answer as to what medication I should be taking.
