My experiences with both Dr. Kawakami and his staff (Becky) were very positive. First rate surgeon who answered all my questions, explained the procedure (radical prostectomy) clearly and explained the results. When he visited me in the hospital. The follow-up meeting was very professional too. My wife commented that Dr. Kawakami met her criteria of a caring and true professional as did his receptionist. Disclosure: I am 68 and had never met either of them before my need for prostate surgery.

From my experiences, i have to agree with a few comments below, that the doctor is great, but the receptionist (at least one of them) is rather impatient.

Personally, I think Dr K's got wonderful staff and she is kind and helpful. He is the only doc I know that runs close to on time regularly and has often asked if I have any questions of my own. Don't usually post but my 2 cents.

To be a great doctor, more than medical knowledge is required. When poor quality staff are hired and maintained, the doctor at least shares responsibility. Such is the case at this office.

I see many positive experiences reviewed by others, however I cannot say that I had the same experience. He might have been a terrific caring surgeon as others have said, however we didn't even get there as his communication skills were dismal. He diagnosed my problem correctly, but did nothing to fix it. He simply prescribed meds that had little help with no explanation of side effects or surgery options. No plan or follow up was made and my symptoms became progressively worse till the point that I ended up in ER. Another urologist quickly made the same diagnosis AND performed surgery within 1 month resolving ALL of my symptoms that I was suffering from for 2 years. My objective and sincere recommendation is that you become a strong advocate for your health and do not take for granted that physicians know all or are working in your best interest. If you get this doctor and are not satisfied with the communication, direction and overall care, request copies of your diagnostic tests and OR reports and take them to your family doctor to explain them. If you are still at a loss and are experiencing adverse symptoms, DO NOT hesitate and go to the ER. They helped me to sort this out and with the right urologist, my problem was resolved.

I had a hydroselectomy performed by Dr. Kawakami and he was incredibly helpful and guided me through the process the whole time. He informed me of all my options giving pros and cons and never made me feel pressued towards any singular decision. I felt like my confort and security was always forefront. I am a young male and was very nervous about any sort of surgery but having his helpfulness and kindness through the process really helped ease nerves. Would highly recoment him.

Dr. Kawakami is one of the best. He explained the condition of my kidney to me very throughoghly and before he performed my surgery, explained everything that was going to happen, in a step-by-step process. I always had a lot of questions that he was happy and willing to answer. Although, I had a very old kidney problem, he was able to perform surgery at his best. Recovery after surgery was great. I had no complications. Thank you Dr. Kawakami!
