Got a 2nd opinion on a fusion vs disc surgery and Dr. Oishi was MUCH more personable, patient and explained thingsbetter than neurosurgeon #1. Bedside manner was great and wait time not bad either.

Office staff was nice. Dr. Oishi was pleasant as well but seemed rushed. I wanted to get all my treatment options but he was really brief. I kept having to bring things up and dig deeper to get the info I wanted as he was not very forthcoming.
