just now Dr. Uyeki displayed compassionate, dignity and worked hard in all aspects to prolong my husband's life. He took his time with us and made sure we understand not only the aspects of his cancer but how it affected us emotionally. Even as we approach hospice care, my husband and him hold a genuine affection and respect for one another. Our family was blessed to have him in our corner through this cancer trial.

We have the utmost confidence and respect for Dr. Uyeki. He has treated my husband's cancer for over a year and has brought his very aggressive cancer to complete remission. Dr. Uyeki is easy to communicate with and makes us feel at ease in the most stressful situations. We would highly recommend Dr. Uyeki.

Dr. Uyeki is a brilliant, very highly intelligent, generous and compassionate practitioner. My husband is one of his current patients. We had the shock of a late stage, high grade renal cancer discovery. Dr. Uyeki's treatment of my husband was excellent; his openness, patience, and genuine engagement with me, the intense wife, researcher, and question-asker, was what put him in my Dr.'s Hall of Fame. I live in a degree of comfort and ease, due to his honest and professionalism. He is the best.
