What People Say About Dr. Thomas Sato, MD
Just were do I began. Our journey with Dr. Sato started 10 years ago. He has a remarkable calmness about him. Ten years ago and also this year in 2018, he still possess that calmness. My son has had 2 major surgeries here at Children's and Dr. Sato performed both of them. He was very informative and even discussed my sons options with him. He included my whole family in his care, just as he did 10 years ago. I must say that I was remarkably calmer this time around. I knew we were in great hands.
