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.

Every aspect of this visit to address my current medical issue was handled in an extremely professional, but friendly manner. I never felt rushed through, and they seemed to clearly understand the concept of "treatment of a patient" as a person, and not a number on the chart. Excellent communication and caring attitudes.
