I saw Dr. Ngatuvai after a car accident. He told me I was like a worn out set of tires. It wasn't the car accident that had damaged my shoulder, but I was already older and it was worn out. I was 35 with no history of shoulder pain or injury! He prescribed pain meds and muscle relaxers. I asked what else I can do, and he said physical therapy might help. PT found a rib out of place and pulling on the shoulder, after couple months of therapy my shoulder healed. No pain meds needed!

Don't waste your time with this doctor if you have severe concerns! I went to him for too long and he never took my concerns seriously!! He blamed my neurological symptoms and fatigue on burnout!! I changed doctors and was immediately referred to a neurology specialist. A thyroid specialist also immediately diagnosed me with Hashimoto's Thyroid after Dr. Ngatuvai had refused to address my long-standing thyroid symptoms and requests for tests. I truly regret not changing doctors sooner!:(

He's pretty straight forward with what he thinks is going on. I appreciate that he gives his opinion about something. I feel like he would still order anything I asked him to if needed and explains to me why something would seem irrelevant. He was good about answering things I read on the internet that didnt really apply.

The worst Dr I've ever been to. Completely ignored all of my serious concerns and told me because I'm a woman that you're probably just tired. He went on to tell me that his wife does a lot of laundry and gets stressed out so that is probably my problem as well. Um, excuse me?! I was concerned about heart issues and a lump in my abdomen. Not sure how that relates to his wife other than we are both female. He didn't even do any blood work until I insisted. Highly incompetent.
