I have been very impressed with Dr. Kuwada and his staff. He answered my questions and explained how he was going to perform the colectomy that I needed. His nurse Muriel is amazing and was very glad to answer any questions that I had. I would recommend Dr. Kuwada.

Kuwadas bed side manners are horrible and very unprofessional. Instead of admitting that he does not know how to treat something he tries to make the patient feel crazy and suggest psychiatry care and depression treatment not realizing that patient is depressed out of the frustration of dealing with pain he was unwilling or unable to treat. Needless to say I had to find anothe surgeon who was willing to treat me who was intelligent enough to know I needed urgent surgery that helped me in the end

Dr. Kuwada did spent time with me but could not answer questions about pain I have and "lumps" that were revealed by an MRI. His office then waited over five months to submit his $430 bill to Blue Cross on the evening that the policy renewed. If he and his office had moved in a timely manner, I would have met my deductible with plenty of time to take advantage of my insurance.
