Dr Uyeki and his team are amazing! Caring, kind, very thorough and always available for questions. He is treating a family member so when I was diagnosed with cancer, I knew I would be in great hands under his care. Highly recommend!

I had never before needed an oncologist. I had no idea what to expect, but Dr. Uyeki has been wonderful and I don't have any worries that I am not in great hands. He answers my questions and concerns and is making this so much easier than I thought it might be.

Marshall Windham – Aug 20, 2021
Visits with Dr. James Uyeki are always timely and extremely helpful in my overall well being and current cancer status. He is above all other oncologist as he is knowlegable and always up to date on all current treatment op;tions. I have been under his care for over six years for Grade IV metastatic breast cancer and I consider his expertise the reason for positive continued treatment. His grafts of current tumor marker status and lab work help me understand where I am in treatment and what options are available. I hope for continued excellent care by his team members and staff.

As always, Dr. Uyeki reviewed bloodwork and symptom status since last visit, was efficient but not rushed, discussed any concerns I had about quality of life, and planned the next series of treatments. I appreciate both his medical expertise and concern for quality of life.

Dr. Uyeki is patient and thorough in his patient care. His analysis of my blood tests led to further tests by another doctor who found colon cancer which was removed. This was very early detection and no further treatment was required Very thankful that he pursued an observation and that I avoided a probable bad event. I love his attention to detail and his tenacious study of my condition. Highly recommend Dr. Uyeki

I hope one of my friends/loved ones would not NEED to see him, bit IF ANYTHING occurred I would assure them that no other doctor would be better. He’s sensitive and kind while being straightforward. He takes the time needed to hear your concerns and reflect on your case. He’s aware of trials, advances in research, and I felt ultimate trust in being under his care. He’s taken great effort to refer me to competent doctors for other concerns. He is also aware of our lives beyond situation that brought us to his office to begin with. I think the world of him as a professional and compassionate human being.
