Specialties

Dr. Scott K Kuwada has the following 2 specialties

  • Gastroenterology

    A gastroenterologist is a specialist in diagnosis and treatment of conditions involving the digestive/gastrointestinal (GI) tract. These doctors are experts on how food moves through the digestive system and is chemically broken down, with nutrients being absorbed and waste excreted. You might see this kind of doctor if you are experiencing any number of stomach issues, some of which might be severe diarrhea, irritable bowel syndrome, hemorrhoids, ulcers, acid reflux, Crohn's disease and more.

  • Internal Medicine

    An internist is a physician who focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of conditions that affect the adult population—both acute and chronic.
    These doctors are often who adults see as their primary physicians because they treat a broad range of illnesses that do not require surgical or specialist interventions. They also work to help a patient maintain optimal health in order to prevent the onset of disease.
    In addition to treating the common cold and flu, internists also treat chronic diseases like diabetes and heart disease.

One Star

This doctor could do much better in making sure at least by the end of the day, he return concerned patients phone calls. When patient continues to have pain and treatments are not working, this doctor does not give the patient good direction to ease your suffering. The staff appears un knowledgeable and could do better in reminding this doctor to follow up on patient concerns and return calls. You could wait days and even weeks without a phone call being returned. He does not appear to take the initiative when making sure worried patients are taken care of when their treatment appear to not be working. He could be more caring and concerned about his patients.

Dr Kuwada is very pleasant and has genuine concern in the office visit. However, he is not fully aware of the facts about Crohn's disease. He stated in an office visit that "Crohn's is only in the lower bowel." If you check WebMD, there is a statement that Crohn's can be anywhere in the digestive system. I had a scoping a week ago and I have not yet heard from him. I was told he would call me about the details of the scoping.
