Dr. Mike Uyeki

Waste Of Time And Money

I was very excited to schedule my first appointment with Dr. Mike A Uyeki after reading all of the great reviews here.

Don’t let this small sample of good reviews fool you–Dr. Mike A Uyeki is not worth your time or money.

Unfortunately, I had to cancel my first appointment on short notice because my partner is being treated for cancer and I had to unexpectedly be with him at the hospital on the day of my appointment.

The receptionist was very accommodating at the time and told me that the cancellation would not be a problem.

Flash forward a couple of weeks: when I called to reschedule the appointment today, I was told by the receptionist (Keiko) that Dr. Uyeki had left a note specifying that I am no longer allowed to make an appointment.

She explained that I’ve been unceremoniously dismissed by his office because I cancelled.

Again, when I originally cancelled my appointment, I was not warned that this was his policy or that it would be a problem.

The receptionist at the time was perfectly accommodating and made it sound as if it wasn’t a problem at all.

I am incredibly upset with the way this was handled for 2 reasons, both of which by themselves would be reason enough to find another doctor:

1) Dr. Uyeki’s office handled this situation in a shockingly unprofessional manner.

If his policy is to disown patients who cancel, the patient should be warned when he is canceling the appointment.

If he is not warned when canceling, a dismissive note written by the doctor is not the proper way to inform him when he calls to reschedule.

In any other business, this sort of inflexible self-righteousness would not be tolerated–medicine should not be an exception.

2) Dr. Uyeki apparently lacks any sort of empathetic imagination.

Sure, he didn’t know that my partner had to go to the hospital due to complications with his chemotherapy on the day of my appointment, but perhaps he should give people the benefit of the doubt.

Of all people, a doctor should be able to show a little empathy, or at least have the decency to ask a few questions before giving a patient the ax.

In the end, I’m glad that this happened. If Dr. Uyeki is this unprofessional, curt and passive aggressive before meeting with a patient, I don’t care to find out how he behaves once he’s actually treating one.

  1. I drive to his office for one hour, but I still want to be his patient.

    Dr. Uyeki is a real doctor. It was my first time to see a doctor in the U.S., and I was very nervous before I saw him. But Dr. Uyeki was friendly, listened to me and made me relaxed. Not only that, he gave me pin point medical advice.

    Like others say, his follow-up call is unbelievable. Dr. Uyeki himself calls me to let me know the lab results, and to check how I am doing even after over the phone consultations.

    I can feel that he really takes care of his patients. He knows what insurance does and doesn’t. He always helps me with my medication fees. I really thank him.

  2. He is amazing and is the only doctor who I felt truly cared and didnt come up with a generic answer to my questions.

    Dr. Uyeki is great! I had not been to a doctor in a few years and he made sure all my tests were done and that I was receiving the proper medication and care that i needed. He is amazing and is the only doctor who I felt truly cared and didnt come up with a generic answer to my questions.

    He is very good about calling his patients personally and sharing their test results with them. That is something no other doctor has done at least in my experience.

    He is very friendly and because of his level of care, I have been on my best behaviour health wise and have started to watch my diet and am determined to lose wieght and be in as best of health as possible.
