Dr. Tachibana has been my primary physician for 30 years. He has always proven competent, reliable, and responsive to my medical needs. He discovered that I had sleep apnea and his diagnosis led to a marked improvement in both my health and my quality of life. He is up-to-date on the latest medical research and proactive in helping my take appropriate prophylactic and preventative measures. I trust him with my life.

Outstanding Physician. My wife & I under his care 24 years. At 85 & 80 he has been instrumental in our active lifestyle. Takes patient care to a high level by listening to the patient. Performs thorough exams and orders appropriate tests to make informed patient care decisions. He reviews all test results with the patient including those the patient may bring in. He takes the time he feels necessary to provide the best care. Stays abreast of changes in medicine. Maintains accredidation/skills.

I have been a patient of Dr. Tachibana for well over 20 years. I have always found him to practice medicine at a personal level. He takes the time to carefully explain his diagnoses and prescription medications. He also takes time in his busy schedule to treat patients with urgent health needs. When necessary, he refers patients to other, skilled physicians for more advanced treatments. His office staff is very efficient and pleasant. I am pleased to say that he is my Primary Care Physicia

I’ve been a patient of Dr. Tachibana for almost 10 years now and have no intention of going elsewhere. Initially, I thought his quiet yet confident demeanor would not work for me but in time his businesslike approach to listening and explaining diagnosis and treatment convinced me he truly cares for the welfare of his patients. He is a highly skilled physician who keeps abreast of leading medical technology through continuing education and research resulting in the best medical care.

Dr Tachibana has been looking after me for many many years. He is the best Dr.available anywhere. He keeps close tabs on me and makes sure all health issues are maintained. He was instrumental in diagnosing a cancer and gave me insightful advise. I followed his lead and I am now fine. I also have no side effects from treatment. Had I not listened to his views I know the outcome would have been worse. So many choices and pitfalls. He is honest, smart, experienced and interested in you.

I have been going to Dr. Tachibana for almost 20 years. I recommended him to my husband & he has been his patient for over a decade now. He takes great care in my health, for which I am thankful. He is always kind & professional. His staff is amazing - always helpful. I never have issues getting an appointment. I feel like a person rather than just a patient number. He takes the time to explain things to me & answers my questions thoroughly. I recommend him to friends looking for a new doctor.
