Dr. Hattori is an anesthesiologist - not a spine care specialist. He does not listen. He is not interested in what I have to say and this is a terrible trait for a doctor. I would stay clear of Dr. Hattori for spine care pain management. He may be a good anesthesiologist but he is a failure when it comes to spine care. The office staff is is quite good.

Dr. Hattori sends a medical assistant to come in the initial time to type in information in a computer. He himself did not come in the room until after this was complete. I thought was strange. It was like playing telephone.

Never would recommend Dr. Masami Hattori, not even to my enemies. I have severe chronic pain, I was under his care for almost four years, the whole Time bedriden He is afraid to prescribe pain meds because he says he will loose his job. I have a fussion in my lower back, I also had a herniated disc bulge removed and I also fractured 17 vertebrates. My back collapsed and is now cemented from my tail bone to my neck. He will not prescribe over the Fda recomandation even white exceptions. zero.

I have never before or since had a physician inflict so much unnecessary pain. If he had just injected anesthetic with the steroid it would have been tolerable. But he wanted pics he could brag about to his students so he left me laying on the table in agony while he bragged to the tech with him that day. My advice to anyone referred to him is run the other way as fast as you can.
