Mr. Gunton, I am sorry you feel that your needs were not addressed. Dr. Sawada prides herself in making sure that the needs of her patients are met in the clinic. I am not sure how many Physicians you have dealt with, that have actually had the time to respond to letters and bad reviews. We do our best, and I apologize that you feel like you had a bad experience. We have learned from your example and have changed the policy regarding listening to patients questions more accurately. Best, DG

Would NOT recommend this Dr. She does not manage her time at all! Been to the Golden office 3 times and have waited 45+ minutes each time. When I complained got cold and unfriendly response from staff. In my opinion,this is NOT a professional establishment who appreciates your business.

Office staff refused to answer simple question on the cost of one syringe of Juvederm. Consultation fee is $100 which goes to the cost of services which is fine. Most offices will tell you the cost of a procedure. I told her I realize that more than syringe may be required so the price would...more
