I just found out I have cirrhosis of the liver. Dr Takata's handling of the situation has given me a sense of well being and overall health that I haven't experienced in years despite seeing other drs at least once a month for lupus, arthritis etc etc etc. Recommend this fellow most highly!

Being new in the area the office accepted me and scheduled a consultation quickly. Once I met Dr. Takata I was put at ease by his knowledge and focus on me as a patient. He is matter of fact and his office was full of patients. I highly recommend him and his staff.
