I was refered to Dr Yamamoto for hip surgery by my GP. This is one of the most impersonal, negative Dr's I've ever met. He was so full of gloom and negativity he really scared the heck out of me. Not one time did he express one positive point for the hip surgery, nor did he mention his personal success and self confidence as a surgeon ? When a surgeon has lack of self confidence over a mandatory procedure I'm looking for someone else..

This is a horrible orthopedic Dr. I was referred to him and went in hopeful for a plan regarding my knees. He talked about several other issues, spoke to me as if I was five instead of 47, was rude and had zero compassion. But, he never actually examined my knee. Instead of working together for positive results, I couldn't get out of there fast enough. As I thanked him on my way out, he had the nerve to tell me he hoped I could get over my anger. I left feeling hopeless and crying.
