I have been a patient of Dr. Yamauchi for many years. When he gives me a head-to-toe skin exam, he is always very thorough, and happy to examine and discuss any specific concerns I have. After my exams, I feel confident that I have been checked out well. If a biopsy is required, I learn the results quickly with a personal phone call from his assistant. The office staff is always friendly and helpful.

Every staff member and Ms. Liew were kind, personable, caring and friendly. When I made the appointment, I thought I was making it with Dr. Yamauchi, so it wasn’t clear. But I assume he gets involved if there’s a skin problem discovered.

He has always been on time which is very important to me. He is very professional and knowledgeable in all questions I had. He makes me feel comfortable being under his care. He is very gentle on procedures provided. Takes his time on explaining everything. He is an amazing doctor and I would highly recommend him to all friends and family.

I have a resistant case of AD. Dr. Y has the time to see me every other week so he's giving me lots of attention. Now, I'm in new clinical study he placed me in that seems to be producing good results so far. So, I'm very pleased with my care.
