What People Say About Dr. Nelson Yamagata, MD
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful

prescribed a drug without going over all the negative effects that gabapentin has. I became delusional and really scared after reading all the complaints about the drug after I started yelling at people, sitting dazed in front of my computer, wandering off to a park where I laid in the grass staring into space. Scared the crap out of me. Luckily I was able to get off the drug without and lasting effects that I know of. My peripheral neuropathy causes a lot of pain and numbness.

Highly recommended. Dr. Yamagata was very pleasant and prepared in meeting with me for the first time. He was the first Doctor to care about helping me with my health issues, more so than previous Doctors who had the same information given to them. I look forward now to a better quality of life. Thank you Dr. Yamagata.

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.

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.
