Dr. Imatoni is the best provider I have experienced in years making a cancer diagnosis easy to understand all aspects. He should be teaching residents "bedside manner" since he has a calming nature for such a difficult diagnosis. He is a blessing for his patients.
Everyone at the office was efficient and professional.
I was very happy with my visit.
This was a follow up appointment after emergency surgery to remove appendix. The appointment was to check on sutures and healing. All was good.
I felt relief after my visit because he explained my diagnosis and made a treatment plan.
Dr. Imatoni is the kindness, most caring person.
Dr. Imatani was my surgeon for breast cancer. I had a somewhat difficult recovery which required more visits and after care. Dr. Imatani and his staff were wonderful in taking care of me and addressed all my concerns and medical issues. I would highly recommend his office to anyone.
Was knowledgeable and optimistic
I've always have had a great experience at Providence.
Dr. Imatani was very thorough, detailed, and patient with me. He asked me if I would like to see my CT Scan, and also sent an after visit summary to my chart so that I could share that information with my husband, because I knew that I wouldn't be able to remember everything that he told me.
Absolutely Amazing DR Imatani goes the extra mile he cares about his patients. I felt like he does his research knows my case and he went over all my options.
