Patient Comments (2)
in Honolulu, HI |
Dr. Obana is the "Lebron James" of Neurosurgery because he has had a top-rated mainland medical education, a 20+ year neurosurgery practice, and has seen and experienced everything possible in the Operating Room. On the patient front, he spent more than an hour with me answering my questions, reviewing the procedure and the prognosis. My outcome was excellent - exactly as described. This doctor is one of the most talented doctors in the state of Hawaii.

Dr Obana explained to me the problem I was having after showing me from the MRI cd that I had 2 pinched nerves and and disc bulging. He explained excately what he was going to do.
