SHC Patient, Feb 2015

The best PROVIDER!

SHC Patient, Dec 2014

With most of my visits for my cancer & treatments, I always felt I was getting the best of care & had my questions answered completely.

SHC Patient, Oct 2014

Dr. Akatsu is very friendly and thorough. She listens well, explains things clearly and documents everything in plain language during our visit.

SHC Patient, Sep 2014

Very satisfied.

SHC Patient, Apr 2014

It is unlikely that I will have the occasion to recommend this care provider to anyone because I do not know anyone else with thyroid cancer. If I did I would MOST DEFINITELY recommend Dr. Akatsu.

SHC Patient, Mar 2014

I really feel confident in Dr. Akatsu. She explains issues thoroughly & is always up to date on my case. Her follow up and follow through has been exceptional.
