Good news for patients who need a skilled and thoughtful surgeon

Very nice surgeon/doctor. His calm demeanor and through explanations kept my stress and anxiety level very controlled. How fortunate we are to have such a kind and skilled surgeon.

He's GREAT

Ive been a patient of Dr Imatani now for 6 months. & I can say the reason people may wait longer than antisipated is because Dr I is VERY thorough. He's awesome at what he does & leaves no stone unturned. He's very kind & warm; perfect for who I wanted to be on my "team" of providers.

WAITED OVER AN HOUR!!!

I paid $40 co-pay, waited over an hour only to spend approximately 10 minutes with this doctor. He was unable to diagnose the concern and quoted "This is so weird, I don't know what it is. I'll have to send you to another doctor". Aren't you a doctor? or surgeon to be exact? I received better answers for my concern researching online. Overall, I do not recommend Dr. James H. Imatani to anyone as he is not knowledgeable and you would only be wasting your money and time.

Excellent care and follow up

After having been diagnosed with advanced stage of cancer Dr Imatani was the surgion who operated on me. He removed most of the stomach, parts of the liver and a part of the colon. It was a life changing experience.Some Drs just seem like they want to just be somewhere else and I've had a lot of those while spending over 1 month at the hospital. Dr Imatani has never given me this impression. When he talks to me he cares about what my thoughts are and is very good at explaining the current situation. The hospital had to call him on many emergencies due to my ostomy site or the j-tube replacement. He has always taken the extra time to be there for me. One of the best Drs I have had to deal with.
