*Dr. Hata is definitely our surgeon of choice in the even of future surgeries.
This doctor was outstanding!!! I couldn't ask to be treated any better!! This doctor is the VERY best.
*Dr. Hata is a good doctor.
The doctor took the time to thoroughly explain what was going to happen to alleviate my issues and I felt like he made my care a priority. Also, he was focused on my problem and didn't seem distracted or rushed.
Dr Hata is a great Dr. He is very caring and friendly. Easy to talk to. Wish he was a regular Dr. And not a surgeon. Would recommend him to anyone.
*Dr. Hata is always down to earth and listens to what you have to say. Have already told my family how great he is.
very kind and answered all questions & concerns.
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.
