Dr. Fukami has a really high level of expertise & skill in advance endoscopy area. That was why I got my big colon polyp(6 cm) removed without surgery. He is one of a small number of doctors in the U.S. who can do Endoscopic submucosal dissection (ESD) and Endoscopic Mucosal Resection(EMR). I strongly recommend him to everyone.

Dr. fukami is an excellent doctor. My mother 92 year old has achalasia and was on a tubing tube. Dr. fukami performed POEM and now my mother had her feeding tube remove. She is able to eat everything she wants, and is enjoying a normal life thanks to Dr. fukami. In fact she is looking forward to celebrating 70 year of marriage with my dad. In addition, Dr. fukami is a kind and caring person. We are lucky to have Dr. Fukami as the doctor.
