Your trust is our top concern.

We strive to keep the reviews trustworthy, honest & fair.

We monitor all reviews to ensure they comply with our guidelines and don’t include personal information, profanity, libel, defamation, harassment, obscenity or fraud.

All reviews are confirmed and audited before publication, and community members have the ability to flag inappropriate content for further review by our team.

Doctors can not pay for good reviews, nor can they pay to have negative reviews removed.

Any reviews that are deemed fraudulent or violate our guidelines will be removed immediately.

I’m used to being asked what’s currently bothering me, rather than being given the floor to start from the beginning and walk through all the steps that have led me to being here today. Dr. Yamazaki gave me more than adequate time to give an overview of my complex past, to paint a full picture, and to truly listen to my health history. Despite being a new patient, he came prepared & already knew my case quite well, having read through my chart, my many many scanned-in visit summaries from previous outside office visits, PT visits, surgeries, & imaging…it was very impressive. Dr. Yamazaki spoke in terms that made sense, often using some pretty great metaphors along the way. He was articulate, thorough, and incredibly knowledgeable. My visit with Dr. Yamazaki is easily in my top 5 provider visits of all time and I feel that I’m in very good hands moving forward. I can’t thank him enough for the great initial experience and for taking the extra-extra time out of the end of his day

He gave me a cortisone injection using ultrasound. He was very caring, warm, and listened and did not seem rushed. He looked for a cyst, which I suspected, but turned out not to be there. The cause of my problem was something else, which he also could see evidence of and showed me. I could not be more pleased with the experience. I would definitely go back, and recommend him.

Dr. Yamazaki approached me like I was a person, not a patient. He sat down eye to eye with me and took his time to answer all of my questions. Dr. made me feel as though he would spend as much time with me as I needed. He did not rush me and did not start the procedure until I was ready. The procedure I went through should have been much more painful than it actually was. Dr. has excellent technique. I felt safe and cared for and would highly recommend Dr. Yamazaki to anyone wanting superb care.
