      Excellent Physician with outstanding trustworthy decision making and diagnostic skills. As a patient I unconditionally trust gastroenterological procedures, diagnosis, treatment plans and opinions by Dr. Takemura. Not only would I recommend him as a gastroenterologist but would insist at the very least he be consulted or part of a team of physicians on any gastrointestinal condition involving any of my family or friends.
