SHC Patient, Jul 2017

I had the absolute Best care possible with Dr Fuyaya. She did everything and more that I could wish for as a patient. I felt she cared about me as a real person. A manner of providing medical assistance which is often missing in todays health care system. Not only did she know what to do, and did it, she explained tings to me and was effective and steadfast in her care. She never pushed me past what I could tolerate, she always seemed relaxed and patient and, though I am more thankful than I can express for all the hard work she and her team gave me, I admit to missing seeing them each week!

I tell everyone I see about Dr. Fukaya and staff and how wonderful their service is.
