Dr. Fukuda and her staff are superb! Dr. Fukuda took the time to explain what my X-rays showed and patiently answered all of my questions. I wouldn’t want anyone else to do my foot surgery.

I just moved to Houston from DC & Dr. Fukuda immediately made me feel welcomed and safe.. I don’t have friends & family so that was reassuring... she examined me & knew exactly what was wrong, gave me a boot & scheduled surgery in a matter of days. I’ve been dealing with this issue in DC for almost a year. I love that she was swift with diagnosis & repair. She definitely puts DC docs to shame i told her made me feel like I came from a 3rd world country... although I’m in pain I’m eager for her to fix my other foot.. I rather be in pain knowing I’m healing than feeling pain and hopelessness. Thank you Dr. Fukuda & Staff best 28 days in Houston!

Outstanding surgeon in all aspects of her treatment plan. She takes the time to explain her treatment plan and answer in detail any questions that might be presented. She has a very engaging personality and each patient is made to feel that they are the most important person in the world when she is treating them. She is fully deserving of the highest of recommendation.

Dr. Fukuda is a fantastic physician who took phenomenal care of me when I injured my ankle. She was thorough, knowledgable, understanding, and she listened. I cannot recommend her enough. In an odd circumstance, she actually also diagnosed my kidney infection and ultimately may have saved my life. I am very grateful to her for treating my ankle such that it healed perfectly and for quickly diagnosing my kidney infection, when no other doctor was able to figure it out. She is truly the best.

Dr. Fukuda has given my son the Best care I could want. She has spent countless time with us to explain (to where we could understand) the problems my son was having. Her staff and her have treated us as though we are family and never made us feel like they are trying to get us rushed out of her office. We had seen other Drs local (2 hours out of Houston) and it wasn’t until we had seen her that I knew we where in the Best care. I will recommend her to anyone!!

She made poor decisions concerning my foot surgery that she did that has led to several more years of pain and surgeries. I don't know if I'll ever be right.
