Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Takagi "As a neurosurgeon, I was trained to do the most minimally invasive approach to give the patient the maximum benefit. I really take that to heart. I like the Minimally Invasive Approach (MIS) because it limits blood loss and hospital stays which leads to better outcomes and better pain control for the patient."

Then he says I won’t operate on you, when I didn’t even ask him if he was going to. He gives little information and gets irritated when you ask him questions. He...Read More

This office is a nightmare. 15 to 20 minutes at least on hold every time you try to call and often they’ll just hang up on you . If the doctor doesn’t care enough to hire enough employees to take care of his patients, he’s not very good doctor .
