I was a patient for a gall bladder removal surgery recently.  My desire to leave a testimonial is because of the quality of care I received.  Everyone had a job to do and did it with kindness and compassion. It was like a well rehearsed symphony orchestra.  All the parts played beautifully. Thank you very much! I'm glad I got rid of that gall bladder and I will concentrate on taking better care of myself nutritionally. (Nancy Backes)

Dr Takahashi is an extremely gifted surgeon. She is quite clear and detailed in her explanation of procedures. She is highly respected by other physicians and nurses. She is consistent, clean, well organized, and has excellent surgical outcomes. Her office staff are very efficient as well.  I have seen her in the office several times, and I have never had a long wait. (Lora Barton)

Excellent staff and doctors. And they answer the telephone! I have great confidence in Dr Takahashi. Sincerely,Dr Charles  (Steven Charles)
