RentonWA |
I saw Dr Kawaguchi at her office in Renton for follow up after a concussion. She was very patient and thorough during our first meeting (when I was having problems with memory and describing symptoms. She really listened to my concerns was supportive but also provided realistic information about recovery being a gradual process. She offered a range of suggestions and was open to my input .My contacts with her have been very positive. exper
