This care provider was excellent and took the time to explain various information that I had questions about and was concerned for my overall well-being and not just with the area of his specialty. I was extremely impressed by thoroughness of the visit as opposed to some providers who want to just move onto the next patient.

My appointment was originally set for 5/15/18. When arriving for this appointment, I was informed that it had been changed (without notifying me) to a different date. The receptionist [...] was non-sympathetic to the inconvenience it cause me. Lack of compassion.

Since the office is very busy, it took about a couple of months to see the Dr. since I called. I asked to see him earlier in case of cancellation, but there wasn't any.

I absolutely love Dr. Takemura's bedside manner. He took the time to thoroughly go over my medical history, current medical issues and even scheduled my next procedure right then and there. I can't say enough good things about him and his staff. It was totally worth it to drive over 50 miles, one way to be treated by Dr. Takemura!!

My original appointment was for the beginning of August and without calling my telephone and leaving a message was changed to later in August. Did not find out about the change until I arrived in the office on the day of my original appointment. Had to check the calendar since I was scheduled for vacation the following day of the changed date. A bit upset about no notification of the change in appointment date.
