Dr. Numata has always been patient with my concerns and listens to me. He has always explained what was going on with my health/question. My concern was loss of hair which I assumed was thyroid related. His concern was it could be other conditions, which it was. I have been going to his office since the early 1980's. Yes I trust him with my life.

only thing to mention that is at all negative is the email one receives prior to the appt, asking you to update all your info. you do this and find out none of what you report actually gets recorded. it has happened before. just wastes time. not a big deal, however, it really should never be requested.

Dr. Numata is not just a great Doctor but I consider him a friend. He can be serious, comforting, understanding, and is always respectful. I have had several doctors in my 68 years and Doctor Numata is at the top of the list.
