What People Say About Dr. Jimmy Tamai, MD
Reply
Dr. Tamai is my surgeon. His plan of treatment before surgery, the surgery itself and the post surgery care has been absolutely bar none, the best! His entire staff are professional and extra caring. Real Fairbanksians who care about me and truly desire to help me have the best outcome for my injury. I have other issues that will require Dr. Tamai's expertise and I am going to stick with Dr. Tamai.
