in Vista, CA |
Dr. Sakamoto was amazing when I feel and broke my hip and needed emergency hip surgery while visiting our daughter in Kailua, she came rapidly to the hospital ER, explained everything well, and performed my surgery within hours of my accident. Her associate, Dr. Salassa, did my follow up exam as Dr, Sakamoto was away and was also wonderful.
in Honolulu, HI |
Being very dissatisfied with the follow thru of my previous surgeon was given Dr. Sakamoto's name with high regard. She was everything and more I expected spending the time she intently listening, not interrupting but to clarify. She began me immediately on physical therapy for my broken wrist, gave me a new brace, etc. My previous surgeon may have done a good job with the surgery, but needed a doctor willing to provide excellent follow through and made me feel that someone cared!
