Today I went to D. Tanaka and I must say I was very impressed. I am from the Bay Area and not knowing any of the doctors in the Central Valley I did my homework. I was blessed to find Dr. Tanaka. He went over the x-rays with my husband and I and we understood everything. He explained to me the symptoms I was having and reassured me that he would make me better. That right there gave me peace of mind. He did.!!In short I would recommend him to anyone I know and anyone I come across. 10****
