Dr. Hisa Yamaguchi – Eastside Surgical Associates


(upbeat instrumental music) – My name’s Hisa Yamaguchi. I’m a general surgeon, and I’m practicing at
Eastside Surgical Associates. I’m a general surgeon, but
I have a special interest in breast health and
breast cancer treatment. I’d say, 80-85% of my practice is
dealing with breast disease. So, that is unique, as most general surgeons
do breast disease, I would call that my sub-specialty. Well, when dealing with breast patients, women are very educated now
with access to the internet. And so they’re very informed, so I like to use my
consultations with them, not as me telling them what to do, but how we can obtain a
treatment plan together. And so it’s a consensus
between me and my patient. They really help me. I learn a lot through them
in the treatment with them. But they always seem
to help me get through and help me understand how to
treat future patients better. And the biggest compliment I get is, that I do have a lot of
referrals from doctors, but a lot of my referrals
come from my old patients. I’ll get patients that say,
“You took care of my aunt, “my sister, my friend, 15 years ago. “And that to me is wonderful.” (upbeat instrumental music)
