Loved Dr Sakai! Always felt assured that she was on top of my wife’s lupus. When she took a break to be with her family we were sad to go elsewhere. Now that she is back we are going to switch back to her again if possible!

I have been to many rheumatologist and she is the best one I’ve ever been to. She’s up to date on all the new meds and their side effects and helps you weigh the pros and cons. She is caring and compassionate and you know she doesn’t see you as just a number. She has treated me for several years and I’ll never go anywhere else as long as she’s here. I have known people who haven’t seen her in years and they tell me she’s the best they’ve ever been to
