Warning!!! The front desk of this office is extremely incapable of keeping even the simplest of calendars appaiintments. They will repeatedly forget to put your confirmed appointment in their system and only inform you that they can not work with you and to reschedule with another doctor. Save your time and schedule with someone else.

There is never a wait in Dr. Yamagata's office. Staff is wonderful. The receptionist is super friendly and always has a smile. Dr. Yamagata talks to me like a friend. He is easygoing and takes time to listen me. Very happy.

Dr. Yamagata takes the time to listen. He also was not quick to force unnecessary treatments on me. He informed me and let me make decisions. He gave me the alternative lifestyle changes I could make to help me with my neurological disorder. I chose to try those things first, and with very good success. I really respect his professionalism and knowledge. I highly recommend him.
