Very good experience. Dr, Tatsumi is well respected, and is a very pleasant, down-to-earth person as well. I was miserable for a long time prior to my neck surgery, I am MUCH better now. Dr. Tatsumi and his staff are very pleasant and professional.
in West Linn, OR |
Prior to my spine surgery completed by Dr. Tatsumi, I was experiencing extreme pain in my lower back & nerve pain in my left leg. Standing was difficult & my quality of life was suffering. Post surgery, I now play golf 4 to 5 times weekly & walk 5+ miles daily on my off days. Dr. Tatsumi is easy to work with & he is involved/concerned about his patients. I highly recommend him.

in Molalla, OR |
My experience with Dr. Tatsumi has been life changing. He is kind, intelligent, informative, caring, helpful and amazing at what he does. When we met, I was at my breaking point. He reviewed what a 2 level fusion @ L4,L5,S1 would do to easy the agony in my legs and low back. 3 hours post surgery, I was walking and could feel my life changing. I am 1 yr. post op absent of pain, riding horse's, gardening, farming, pruning all day and I have never felt better. I have a life again! Thank you!

Dr. Tatsumi has treated both myself and my husband for our neck issues. Surgery was performed and we are living our lives pain free again, thanks to Dr. Tatsumi. He was awesome in all the care we needed and received. We would recommend Dr. Tatsumi to all patients with neck issues with high regards.
in Molalla, OR |
Best doctor I have ever seen. Terrific surgeon very professional and caring. He called me at home the day after my surgery to see how I was doing. I will see him again if need be and recommend him to anyone needing spine surgery.
in Hubbard, OR |
Dr Tatsumi did a spinal stenosis surgery on me in January of 2013. The level of care he provided was amazing; he even called me after office hours to discuss my situation. I literally felt better from the time I woke up in the post surgery recovery room.
in Newberg, OR |
Dr. Tatsumi and his team are amazing. I was in so much pain pre-surgery & 2 weeks after surgery I feel better than I have in months. It was one of the easiest surgeries I've ever had with minimal pain after. His staff is personable and knows your name. Dr. Tatsumi takes the time to get to know you and is passionate about his work. I'm so grateful I was referred to him and that he gave me my quality of life back!
Very non-caring.
