Dr Fujitani is a skillful surgeon who really cares about his patients. I know because I was one of them. He saved my life. No exaggeration, he took good care of me when blood flow to my intestines suddenly had clotted off. I would have died if I were not treated right away. I am forever grateful. Even months later, he continues to check on me to be sure that I am doing well. I have great respect for this wonderful doctor. I have learned that he is so very kind and compassionate with a genuine heart of gold. I can never thank him and his surgical crew enough for what they did for me. I was lucky, very lucky to have him take care of me.

Dr. Fujitani operated on my husband last year, and he saved his life. We will forever be grateful to this wonderful surgeon and his expertise. We did not know him, until our visit to the VA hsp. to go over my husband's ultra sound results and I feel that GOD answered my prayers that day. He did an outstanding operation, and again, if I ever had need for carotid surgery, I would definitely want Dr. Fujitani-he is the BEST. Josephine & James T. Brown Laguna Niguel, Ca.

I have seen many doctors before being referred to Dr. Fujitani and it was not until I saw him that the right diagnosis was made to save my leg. He is very patient and treated me very compassionately - like a family member. I am now cured after being operated by him and am very thankful for his surgical skills. He has a great team who really took care of me from start to finish. He is a great surgeon and wonderful, kind human being!
