Dr.Takenaga done a extremely torn rotor cuff on my right shoulder. He done a wonderful job. You can hardly tell where he made any cuts to get into my shoulder. As far as pain. It was very limited and very little. He will answer any questions you have about everything before and after the surgery. I couldnt have asked for a better Dr. To do my surgery. I would recommend him to anyone. Thank you Dr.Takenaga for a wonderful job you did.

Dr Takenaga is a very very nice and compassionate dr. He explained everything to me so i would understand exactly what was going on. I was referred to him after an accident at work. Couldn't have made a better choice. I'd definitely recommend him to others. The best orthopedic dr I've been to. ????

I had a great experience with Dr. Takenaga. I am also a health care professional and have seen all types - Dr. Takenaga was great. He had clearly read the background information and diagnostic images provided by my referring physician. He explained the physical exam and his findings thoroughly. He recommended a nonsurgical intervention which has been very effective. He emphasized his availability should I need further treatment. He was very amiable as well and made me feel very much at ease - even as he approached me with a syringe. I would recommend him without reservation and would definitely see him again for any orthopedic problems. The practice/office staff were great too - easy check-in and minimal wait time.

Check in was quick and easy. Wait time was 5 minutes. Dr. Takenaga was very personable and explained things in easy to understand terms. He did not push for unnecessary actions such as an MRI or surgery. Completely recommend Dr. Takenaga.
