08/05/09 5 5 5 5 I saw two other MDs in the L.A. area and he was by far the best. Truly an ideal doctor who really cares about his patients. The other MDs were much older and one was even rated one of the best MDs in the U.S. and was at UCLA. I am glad Dr. Matsunaga operated on my hematocele. The other MDs did not take the time to explain my options which increased my stress level. I feel amazing three weeks later with excellent healing. In addition, he helped me overcome my insurance company's objection that this was a pre-existing condition.

04/10/07 5 5 5 5 After my poor experience with dr Frederick Wolk, I searched for another Urologist and was fortunate in finding Dr Matsunaga, he is totally in the highest level of professional care giver rating. Attitude is marvelous, his knowledge is incredible and you can ask any question and always receive a complete answer. The 2 operations that he did for me were just so effective, his concern for my wellbeing was complete, I just can't say enough nice things about him other than to say that when a close friend needed a Urologist, Dr Matsunaga was the answer  Respond
