Pretentious. Humourless. Unhelpful. Just another gatekeeping douchebag doctor.

Don't go to this doctor for trans healthcare if you have any history of mental health issues. He doesn't understand or try to and he doesn't have any belief in your recovery. Example: I (ftm trans with history of psychosis) went for my hormone prescription and he wanted me to take the lowest possible dose of AndroGel. Didnt give me the option to take injections, even though I've taken them previously for 2 years no problem. Didn't let me make an informed decision, and even said I "lacked insight". Hilarious. His reason was that his other patient with schizophrenia (note: I'm not even schizophrenic) ended up naked in a fountain from this. He didn't wanna give me a chance, because he didn't see me as an individual but rather as a mental health label. Really not the best approach to vulnerable and marginalized populations to label and isolate them further. And... I've seen another dr, been off my psych meds, and taking testosterone for months now with NO PROBLEM. Thanks genuis! You're a spark of hope in the darkest of times.

He has an air of pomposity about him; a superiority complex. Lacks comprehension, will take genuine questions as threats and start defending instead of answering. Poor communication, poor rapport. Condescending. Incompassionate. Does not take PT's concerns and needs into account, does not care to accommodate. A "you have a choice but you must choose the option I've chosen for you" approach. The worst experience I've ever had with a doctor.

I've been seeing him every 2 weeks for over 3 years now. He has always been interested in how my life is going, and has insightful suggestions/ questions that make me think things through. He has a good understanding of addictions medicine and has always been compassionate and non-judgmental with me.

Polite and we'll mannered as any doctor should be. Has written my prescriptions incorrectly, sometimes not at all, missing certain medications. Doesn't respond to patient input or even consider anything. Has been detrimental to my recovery due to inconsistencies like making mistakes on a methadone prescription for the weekend more than once, or leaving out certain meds. Doesn't have the personality to be working with people who are really struggling withave mental health and can be pretentious. Only good comments have to do his looks, dress, and manners. you can tell which patients tend to get along with him. I've had a horrible time dealing with him and can attribute feeling suicidal because of his vast knowledge of benzodiazepines and mental health. Cannot wait to be done with him

Dr Sakakibara is very kind, articulate, knowledgeable and treats everyone with the utmost respect. He gets things done and I've encouraged people to get him as their own family physician before and I will again. I'm satisfied and I will keep him as my family Dr and keep on seeing him. Thanks Dr Todd!

While I found Dr. S. to be pleasant and open initially I was shocked at being immediately dropped from his care after telling him I "might" have a job out of town in 3 weeks. I stress the word "might". Then to find out while he spoke to a colleague located in the area I "might" be moving, my assessment was almost complete and may have to restart the assessment process. After seeing him for just shy of 6 months every two weeks. I understand the need to make an accurate and safe assessment, but I am an older trans man who has had 40+ years knowing who I am. I stated that I could not spend another year in this body, that restarting the assessment process was unacceptable. To which I was asked, "what have you done to get you this far?". Hmm, drug and alcohol abuse, self loathing, isolation, and attempted suicides. Yep, I'll just go back to those, thanks for the nothing you got paid for for over 6 months. Don't fear the "gatekeeper"....B.S.
