Very thorough and professional.
Dr. Hata is a wonderful surgeon. This is the second time I've been under his care. IF, for any reason, I needed surgery again, I'd hope he would be the one. He is friendly, knowledgeable and speaks to me in a way that helps me understand what is happening.
The dr. was great - the staff very efficient & friendly.
