Dr. Yamada is nice enough. I went in for a recurring issue that had just cleared on it's own. I was hoping for possible diagnosis and treatment to prevent the issues recurrence. Dr. Yamada basically said nothing about my issue, he seemed to not know any cause, and honestly had no interest whatsoever in what I went in for. He then went on to schedule routine labs and went on a spiel about the PSA test for 5 minutes before asking me if I wanted to take one. At the end of the visit I asked for a prescription, he wrote it for me and told me to see him in a year. It was kind of weird.
The day I'd walked into office one late afternoon on his request.Dr Yamada seen the lump on the side of my neck was something which is not seen everyday he immediately made sure I was looked at by the people which all concluded I had caner of the tonsil . By him seeing me that one late afternoon might just have helped me be around a little longer. Thank you Dr. Yamada.
