Felt like a waste of money. I went to DR. Kuwama because the Ob-Gyns in the area were booked and her office was listed to do Ob-Gyn consultations. The reception was very prompt and attentive. I've spent more time with theassistant than the doctor herself. The assistant was helpful with my problems. I asked to take another pregnancy test since I had used a cheaper one at the time but moreover, a form of reconfirming. After two back and forths with the assistant, the doctor finally invited me to her office, first to complain that I had wished to take the test again(mind you, I'm willingly paying extra for that service), then told me it's better to go to an Ob-gyn for certain questions. She asked me if I have any questions just to answer them vaguely and had more of a stuck up manner that she's the doctor. As if that wasn't bad enough, the doctor's note was something that was better off if I wrote it instead. Never again. Take your money and time elsewhere.

Dr. Chika had good bedside manner. However, I pretty much diagnosed myself and it appears that she just went with it. Prescribed me some steroid pills and call it a day.

Walked into an old outdated office full of screaming babies. It took at least 40 minutes to see the actual Doctor, maybe longer, even though the office was pretty much empty. She made me feel like my issues were foolish, asshe had this certain smile on her face as she was talking to me. I basically paid to wait and have a 3 minute conversation with the Doctor who gave me zero help. Went to another doctor today who was more understanding and caring toward my issues. Do not recommend.
