I got my daughter back. What my family went through, all of the pain and suffering was unreal. I want to thank Dr. Kanayama and his blessed hands for helping my daughter and making her smile again. Words cannot express the joy I feel. Also Sabrina you will forever be family. We will never forget how you helped us and what you did for us.
I'm alive again. If this is what it feels like to be living I have never been happier. Finding Dr Kanayama was the biggest blessing in the world. I have never been this grateful.
Skip the OB/GYN and RUN to Dr. Kanayama for endometriosis. Wish I went to him first. Amazing.
Dr. Kanayama is a brilliant surgeon and the most caring physician. He has given me back something that i thought was stolen for me. Thank you Dr. Kanyama for restoring my faith and giving me back my quality of life. I cannot express to you how grateful me and my family are to have found you.
Just left the office of Dr. Kanayama's and was very impressed with his knowledge and expertise. I am scheduled for surgery and excited to get my life back. Thank God i found him.
I feel like I am on TOP of the World. I feel human again. Thank you Dr. K. The best thing was making the decision to have surgery. You gave me the ease and trust I needed to make this all possible. I cannot tell you how great I feel. I wish I can do for you what you have done for me. May God Bless you for all of your work, I truly appreciate you as my doctor and surgeon.
Dr. Kanayama changed my life! He is brilliant. His waits are long, but it's because he takes his time with his patients. Well worth the wait. His only downside is that he doesn't take insurance. If you don't have a good amount of disposable income, or good out-of-network benefits, you won't be able to afford his services.
Dr Kanayama not only saved my uterus but he gave me my life back . I just visited Dr Kanayama for my yearly exam to make sure my Endo is not back and my exam was perfect. I Had my surgery in 2009 and still feel great. It's put peace in my mind to have Dr Kanayama take care of me. He is the only one I trust. Best Endometriosis specialist by far.
Brilliant Endometriosis Specialist. Six months post op and I feel like I can conquer the world. You restored my faith in the healthcare system. Thank you Dr K I am forever grateful to you , so is my family. They finally got their daughter back.
Thank God I found this office because every other doctor was trying to give me a hysterectomy. I am 31 years old and have no children and thought my life was over until I found Dr. K. He cleaned up my Stage 4 Endometriosis, preserved my fertility and gave me my life back. As of today I am pain free and feeling great. I look forward to my yearly checkup and spoke to my husband on starting the baby making process. I will definitely keep you all posted, but am excited that I have that option and that it wasn't taken away from me. Thank you Dr. K and thank you Sabrina for all the insurance work you have done. Without you none of this would have been possible.
I am completely speechless and have Dr. Kanayama to thank for my miracle baby. this entire experience has been amazing from start to finish. Sabrina is the go to person in that office. She made this a wonderful experience for me. Top Notch Endometriosis Specialist
DR. Kanayama is my miracle. He helped me like no other physician has ever helped me and gave me the ability to live again. His office staff is by far the most trained, skilled and were compassionate to my needs. I not only balled during my entire visit they actually listened to me and did not dismiss me or think I was crazy. I am 2 years post op and words can not express my Gratitude. I am alive again and I owe it all to this man. Thank You
I wanted to write this review because Dr Kanayama is the best Endometriosis specialist and most honest doctor I know. It is so obvious in the last review bashing him that you are not his patient and you are working for the competitor to discredit Dr. Kanayama. It is so sad that there are other Doctors out there who are jealous because he is loved and respected for his expertise in this field. Especially , anyone who has been to this office knows the office manager is probably the most helpful, considerate person you will ever meet and takes care of all of the insurance paperwork right away. this embarrassing attempt to boost up someone else's business is pathetic. So before you talk about any doctor check there background and credentials. Dr Kanayama is an impeccable surgeon and physician and I have two children to prove it. Shame on you .
I went through about a year and a half of "unexplained pelvic pain" and was in and out of different doctor's offices trying to figure out what was wrong. I had one laproscopic surgery after begging for it because I knew that was my last resort to see what was truly going on and then I was put on Lupron shots and told that was the only treatment and that I would have to be on birth control pills the rest of my life until I wanted to have children. I became even more aggressive with my healthcare and found Dr. Kanayama along with a few other specialists in the USA (there are not many) and received 3 medical opinions regarding excision surgery. I could have gone to any one of them because of where I was living at the time, but chose Dr. Kanayama because of the warmth from not only him but his staff. Just speaking over the phone and crying I never felt rushed or that the pain was all in my head. It is because of Dr. Kanayama that I have been pain free for 6 years and able to be off of the birth control pill for that long and conceive my first son who I love more than life itself. The only reason I can think that Dr. Kanayama is not famous along with these other specialists who perform excision surgery for endometriosis is because a lot of drug companies would lose a lot of money.
never thought I would be one of those people who writes a review about a dr that I was so skeptical about, I am so happy that I took a leap of faith and put my health in Dr K hands. Best experience ever. Thank you for making me believe.
The last review is absolutely ridiculous, you know many people who have operation that dont need them. People dont perform surgery for fun, and why would you need to see 5 other physicians as opposed to solving the problem with 1. i know some patients dont want to believe whats happening in there bodies and are in denial. Also sometimes finances pay a major part in that decision but I can attest to Dr. Kanayama skill and knowledge. I am one of his patients and because of him I have my life back, am married now and have a beautiful baby girl and trying for #2. Its sad that people in this world would try to prevent other women from getting the proper treatment for Endometriosis.
I found Dr. Kanayama in 2007, and he soon operated on me. I had been through 5 unsuccessful surgeries with other "specialists", and asked Dr. Kanayama to just give me a hysterectomy. Dr. K does not believe in removing ANY reproductive organs, so he refused (whoever made the previous post regarding removal of organs is blatenly lying and trying to smear his name). Instead, he excised the endo, and reconstructed most of my reproductive organs. He cured me from my many years of suffering with endo! Thank you Dr. Kanayama, and God bless you!
Ive been a patient of Dr. Kanayama for as long as i can remember! he is a gift from GOD! All my life I've been suffering from endometriosis, going from doctor to doctor who couldn't cure this horrible disease! I've been told by many doctors that I wasn't able to have kids due to the severity of my endometriosis. I never gave up hope and god has guided me to Dr.Kanayama. I had surgery with him in 2008 and I am glad to say I have 3 kids now! I cannot thank dr. Kanayama enough for giving me my life back. I have read the comments below and I find them absolutely absurd! If someone had surgery 10 years ago why would they write a comment now? Also his new office is 3 years old (regular patient) how would they know about his new machines since you stopped coming to his office after your surgery 10 years ago? It doesn't make sense! To all woman who are suffering, I HIGHLY recommend this doctor!
I had a surgery 10 years ago, I was really young and didn't know much about medical procedure. He took out the organs which I didn't have to take out at that moment. Right after the surgery, he told me that I would never be able to have babies. If he sees this review, he knows exactly who I am, or he had done the same thing to other people, if he doesn't. All the reviews are paid advertisement. He is very famous for having surgery for his own pleasure. If you think it is not true please look at those newest machines at his office. Also look at the yelp reviews, he deleted those reviews. If you trust him, that is ok, but get a few second opinions.
Dr. K is the best endo guy around. He cares deeply about his patients and is intense about surgery. You'll know more than you ever wanted to know, with full color pictures. And for the first time in years you will feel good.Don't blame the broken US health payment system on him. If you want his attention for more than the few minutes other doctors can give you under their health insurance rules, then you have to pay for it. Sad but a fact of life right now.
Three years post op and Endo free. I'm on my second child and went to see Dr K today with my son. Ive never felt better and have never been happier that my son will have a brother/sister in December. Thank you Dr K for making all this possible. I would recommend Dr K to everyone who suffers the way I use to.
DR Kanayama saved my life, my marriage and gave me a brand new start. This office is one of the most knowledgable, most professional office I've ever been too. Being able to sleep through the night and wake up in the morning and not have to run to get pain medicine is the best feeling in the world. A million thanks to Dr Kanayama and his staff
By far is this doctore the best. He is so knowledgable about Endo and told me things that no other doctors have told me. I have gone misdiagnosed for years.... I have been picked and poked with no relief until i met Dr. K. I recommend this office to everyone who is suffering from Endo. Just ask for Sabrina she is amazing when it comes to insurance and helping patients. by far the best experience ever.
This man is a true Endometriosis specialist and has lifted a big burden from my body and my heart. Im 2 years post op and still feel amazing. My husband and I are ready to start a family now and we are so excited that Dr. Kanayama made this oppurtunity possible.
not only is this doctor honest but he is warm hearted. At first, it took me a minute to take in everything he was telling me. It was quite overwhelming, also very shocking. The second shock was that my insurance was only going to cover a certain part of my treatment. After much discussion with my husband and the warmth that I got from his office. I decided that you cant put a price on your health and by far it was the best decision I ever made. Not only did he show me pictures of what Ive been dealing with. He cleaned everything up and I feel amazing. I am honored to be a patient of yours and I thank you for giving me a chance to better my life. Sabrina and Iliana thank you for your support. Bless you
whoever wrote these last two comments apparently have never been to Dr. K and are writing things on spite or because they are bitter about something. Clearly anyone who has ever gone to Dr K knows that he doesn't have a physicians assistant.... ahhahahha also Dr K is so humble and so respectful its unbelievable how gentle this man is. He is Japanese and its there culture to treat everone with the utmost respect. he has been nothing but kind and gentle. Also hes an out of network doctor like all the rest of the specialist so of course your going to be paying something. The funny part is everyone acts like they would work for free. Dr. K is amazing in what he does and i am very happy to be under his care. Not only did he give me my life back but he gave me my sanity. To all those haters, go to him first before you try to bash him.
Those who have the audacity to say anything negative about my miracle doctor and his office manager Sabrina are disgruntled because they don't have the insurance coverage that is warranted for the highest quality medical attention anyone could ever imagine! Through no fault of Dr. Kanayama, our country should take more consideration for women who have suffered with a disease that went on for 20 yrs for me and likewise for many other women. Who could put a price on finally finding a doctor who by the grace of God healed me. I thought I went to the best gyn drs in NY, from former head of gyn at Columbia Presb, Mount Sinai, to NYU Medical Center, to name a few! Not one could ever be considered an endometriosis expert like Dr. Kanayama! He is truly one of a kind and hopefully other doctors will learn from him; that is, if their egos don't get the best of them. This awful disease, in its 5 stage, robbed me of 20 yrs of my life I pray God will restore fully. God bless the best doctor I have ever known. Excellent is not a high enough rating. I give him OUTSTANDING! I negate any word spoken against Dr. Kanayama and Sabrina, in Jesus Name!
I visited to so many gynecologists in the many years that I went undiagnosed with endometriosis (about 10 years in all.) This was the first to listen to me, spend time with me, and get to the bottom of my pain. He operated on me and found what I suspected: endometriosis (stage III), extensively spread throughout the abdominal cavity. A month after the operation, I was pain free and naturally pregnant (after 5 years of infertility, two miscarriages and many inconclusive fertility treatments.) It doesn't get better than that. I will forever be grateful to this wonderful doctor and will shout his praises regularly whenever I get the chance.
I met Dr. Kanayama after he performed surgery on my daughter. He was very soft-spoken with a kind and gentle manner. He explained in detail his findings while also showing us his findings with the pictures he took during surgery. It was most refreshing to know his interest lies in preservation of the uterus over removing it. I commend him for the work he is doing for many women who suffer from the ills of endometriosis and fibroid uterus.Unfortunately his findings regarding my condition were the opposite. Still, that he gave a frank and honest opinion and also explained that he felt he was not able to perform the surgery for me warrants even higher accolades for knowing his limitations and recommending I get the expertise of another physician.Highly commendable on his part.
Dr. Kanayama treated me for endometriosis and infertility. I had terrible pain, and to be brief, had spent years being treated for infertility and other gynecological problems. Dr. K operated on me and my pain was gone almost immediately. I was pregnant 2 months later and am now the proud mom of a 9 month old. It sounds like a fairytale, but it's just good science. He's the best and I cannot recommend him enough. Some other comments: his staff is kind and efficient, he is caring and takes time with patients (which makes waits long, but worth it), the hospital where he operates is wonderful!
He is a genius. There aren't enough highly skilled surgeons like him.
I had an amzing visit at this office, I was finally diagnosed after years with no answer..... My insurance will only cover half of the surgery but sabrina the office manager who is brillant is helping me with my insurance. This office is top of the line
Kanyama was great, but he is 3 times as expensive as other surgeons, he is out of network (so don't expect to get reimbursed from your insurance company), and his office assistant Sabrina, was one of the rudest, insensitive, and unprofessional persons that I ever experienced. She made me feel very uncomfortable and was the only negative part of my medical procedure.
Dr. kanayama not only saved my daughters life but because of a NEW TECHNIQUE he created she now is able to have children and i am an expectant grandmother. sabrina who is Dr. kanyama right arm is amazing and kind and its a priviledge to have encountered such a professional office. Thank you Dr. K
