Terrible bedside manner, arrogant, and don't EVEN think about trying to speak about anything to this doctor, he does ALL talking. 2 of the 3 receptionists thought they were too good to say hello, this is at the Summersweet location.

Wonderful doctor. He was able to identify and treat my neuromuscular sleep disorder. Exceptionally accommodating and professional. I travel from Michigan to see Dr. Yamada.
in St Louis, MO |
I had him perform a sleep study on me to find out why I'm having night terrors. Unfortunately, I did not have an episode during the study so he wasn't able to find anything wrong. The medicines aren't working. Every time I call his office to get help, I always have to leave a voicemail and then no one ever returns my calls! I have to call several times, each time more demanding than the last just to get help weeks later. Never in my life have I ever had a doctor do this!
