Dr. Masami Hattori

The Worst Doctor

Do yourself a favor and find a different pain management doctor. Dr Masami Hattori is the worst doctor that I have encountered.

Upon meeting Dr Hattori, I informed him that I have a high pain tolerance, and that I don’t want to be all “doped up/ high”.

I informed Dr Hattori, what was wrong with me, and what has been done previously to treat the reoccurring injury.

Another doctor had already diagnosed me two years before meeting Dr Hattori.

Dr Hattori ignored, what I told him, and he scheduled me to have an MRI that ultimately confirmed, what I had said.

At our 1st appointment, Dr Hattori had me sign a contract, wherein, I promised to follow Dr Hattori’s orders, and not to self medicate.

In turn, Dr Hattori would “take care” of my pain. Then, Dr Hattori prescribed me pills that had severe side effects and Opioid patches that dispense a constant supply of Opioids and had to be worn 24/7.

Of note, Dr Hattori’s course of treatment conflicted with my requisite that I didn’t want to be all doped up, and with other doctor’s previous courses of treatment.

Moreover, Dr Hattori’s prescribed course of Opioid treatment was/is highly addictive.

It took a month to get an MRI appointment, and remember, I signed a contract to do, what the doctor ordered.

I took the pills and applied the Opioid patches religiously as prescribed. Within hours of beginning the pills, I was bed ridden.

I had lost all sense of equilibrium, and I lost my ability to see entirely.

My eyes couldn’t focus, and they were jittering uncontrollably.

I was literally stumbling and walking into door frames, as I couldn’t position myself properly or safely.

Later, I learned that the pills were being prescribed for an “off label” use.

That’s right! Dr Hattori prescribed me a medication that wasn’t approved for the purpose that he had prescribed it for.

Further, the Opioid patches were equally debilitating. All month long and all day long, I was inebriated to the point that I couldn’t drive.

With certainty, I couldn’t operate anything with a chance of danger like a machinery, and slowly I fear that now, I may have become addicted to Dr Hattori’s prescribed Opioids.

I am writing this review, having left Dr Hattori’s office, after I believe that we have had our second and last appointment.

I am hurt and disturbed by tangible harm, neglect, perceived malpractice and discrimination, and a potential violation of the Americans with Disabilities Act.

At this point, I am afraid that Dr Hattori has hooked me on drugs, and he has abruptly ended our relationship, after our second visit.

He told me that he didn’t think that we had a very good rapport, and when I asked him, what he was referring to, he told me that he couldn’t articulate, what he was feeling. Then, Dr Hattori said, “the energy between us just didn’t feel right”.

WTF? Wow! My physician, my medical doctor, Dr Hattori was talking about the “energy” between us.

Was he for real? As I understood our relationship, It was a professional one, in which, I was entrusting my physical health to a supposed healthcare professional.

I am sorry. but, I expect Dr Hattori to be able to articulate himself, if he is to be trusted with my life.

Granted, I did question his course of treatment, when after a month, we weren’t getting anywhere with, what he was prescribing.

Moreover, I did express that the acute incidences of pain were still affecting me negatively, and that I didn’t understand, why he was reluctant to treat me, similarly to previous doctors.

I reiterated that I still didn’t want to be doped up all the time, as honestly, my quality of life had declined significantly, since I had been put on the Opioid patches.

However, I would think that Dr Hattori, like other my other doctors, would be impressed that I am in touch with my body.

That I take responsibility for my healthcare. That I have extensive knowledge of my condition and health history, and that I am aware of and in control of my treatment options.

Unfortunately, Dr Hattori appears to care little for input from his patients regarding their own health.

He seems to think that he knows, what’s best for you, and you don’t.

He seems to prescribe heavy Opioid drugs, when they’re not needed or wanted, and he seems to over-medicate his patients without care for the highly addictive nature of the drugs that he is prescribing.

Now, Dr Hattori won’t take responsibility for possibly hooking me on his addictive drugs, and when I asked what I should do to ween myself off of them slowly, as I understand is appropriate, he told me that we were done, and that he had given me a list of other doctors to call.

Really, that was Dr Hattori’s response. Call someone else. He never tried to heal my injury.

He only treated the symptom, and he told me to leave, when I asked him to treat the cause of the problem.

What a racket! It appears, that Dr Hattori provides no real care and prescribes addictive drugs to use his patients as ATM’s.

  1. He should not be used even as a last resort - he is that bad.

    Dr. Hattori is an anesthesiologist – not a spine care pain management doctor. He has limited knowledge of the spine so if this is what the problem is, it is best to stay clear of him.

    He does not listen; he is arrogant and difficult to talk to. A number of key people have left his practice and this speaks to both his professional and people skills. He should not be used even as a last resort – he is that bad.

  2. Don't waste your time here.

    I’ve been seeing doctor hattori for about 11 months, he has destroyed my life with his care. Today I told him to go F… himself. No doctor is better than wasting time with him.

    I wonder how many of his patients he’s turned into heroine addicts. My guess is many. This Doctor does not give a single crap about you, he should not even be a doctor, total prick! Don’t waste your time here.

  3. Dr hattori is the worst dr ever, he does not care about you at all.

    Dr hattori is the worst dr ever, he does not care about you at all. He should not even be allowed to practice medicine, he only cares about the money, he has ruined my life,and I’m sure countless others too, he will not do much more than waste your time and money,

    his favorite thing to say is ” it’s not my problem, I don’t care” he is a total jerk, I wish he had cronic pain so he would know the misery he causes others. If you can avoid it,do not go to this doctor!!!

  5. No wonder people turn to heroine!!

    Pain dr does not care if his patients go through withdrawals, least caring dr I’ve ever seen,Unbelievable! No wonder people turn to heroine!!

  6. I WILL NOT RECOMMEND TO ANYONE!

    i agree with the other comment for the worst doctor award. i just wonder why the other reviewer does not rate this doctor for follow up! who do you think controls the follow up? he’s finished probably billing your insurance and milking it!

    i thank this doctor for treating me so badly that i found the best and most caring physician. all he recommended was either pain medication and surgery! oh and btw, if you have not check your insurance bill, you might want to do that now. i learned my lesson by not reviewing ratings of physician! this is one doctor I WILL NOT RECOMMEND TO ANYONE!

  7. I looked up reviews on this doctor and bedside manner is terrible.

    I looked up reviews on this doctor and bedside manner is terrible. I wont recommend this doctor! I ended going to another doctor after talking to another patient!

  8. I can never thank this kind, compassionate, skilled and knowledgeable doctor enough.

    When I met this very special physician, I had been suffering increasingly severe back pain that originated from an auto accident when I was a teen. Two orthopedists had told me I would be paralyzed because my injuries were irreparable.

    Dr. Hattori strongly disagreed with the paralysis prognosis and patiently explained various treatments for pain management to my husband and me. Over a number of years we have moved from the least invasive to implantation of a Spinal Cord Stimulator in May of.

    This procedure has improved the quality of my life significantly, and now Dr. Hattori and I are going to work on use of medication in addition to the SCS so I can function optimally.

    By November, my pain had gotten so bad that I sent him a email saying I couldn’t live this way any longer. (Then I immediately sent another saying I wasn’t going to do anything rash!) I was quickly given an appointment where the SCS was discussed and the implantation process started.

    I can never thank this kind, compassionate, skilled and knowledgeable doctor enough. Dr. Hattori is quiet spoken, but he absolutely DOES care about his patients. I am horrified by some of the other reviews since they do not in any way reflect my experience.

  9. We have tried other pain management physicians and they were HORRID

    My husband has been seeing Dr. Hattori since when his L5 disc implant failed. Dr. Hattori has been just great — he listens to us, he is empathetic and is respectful and just fine when we’ve turned down certain treatment options that he suggested. We see Dr. Hattori at the California Street office. We have tried other pain management physicians and they were HORRID
