Dr. Uchino was AMAZING! He came in and from the start was very nice, but also so, so smart. You can tell he is very intelligent, but he doesn't speak in a way that makes you feel less than him. I came in with a lost of questions and he ended up answering all of them without me having to ask. He was very thorough and explained everything with enough detail that I ended up not having anything to ask. He hit the mark on all the information I needed. I was so impressed with Dr. Uchino, he's a wonderful provider!
