Although Dr. Sakai is a kind and skilled physician, his staff manages to ruin his practice. Calls go unanswered, urgent appointment requests are ignored, and the team appears disorganized. This practice is definitely driven by money, not caring for patients. Very dissapointing.

Dr. Sakai is very nice, & is ok as a doctor. However, he is understaffed, & the staff that he does have are short & not helpful. As told by a staff member, there are only 2 people working for him & for his several locations. This means you cannot call the office, you will get an answering service....more

I am so sorry you had such a frustrating experience with our staff. Honestly, we did have some staffing challenges the last few months and needed to rely on our answering service more heavily than we ever have. Our sincerest apologies to you and any other patients that may have been frustrated with their experience the last few months. The good news is that we are back to a full team now! Please give us another chance if you are willing.
