I first thought he was a great doctor because he saw me in the emergency room for an ectopic pregnancy and had great bedside manner. I had also heard he was a great surgeon.

Unfortunately, when I became pregnant again, things became strange. Before being allowed to be seen, I was made to sign paperwork saying that I was not allowed to seek a second opinion while under his care - big red flag. I was then given paperwork to sign saying that I would pay out-of-pocket for thousands of dollars in procedures in addition to my state-run medical insurance program. I later heard this was illegal, so reported it and they assured me that it was, in fact, illegal.

On top of all of that, at every visit, he kept trying to coerce me into getting different types of surgical procedures done, though nothing at all was wrong with me. It always seemed to be a way for him just to check and make sure there were no problems. There were not and I never once submitted to any of the surgeries.

Would not recommend and refuse to return. He is a very argumentative doctor and if you do not agree then he will drop you as a patient. He also forces you into surgeries you do not need and is very negative. He is not helpful and never answered the questions I have. I am a high risk pregnancy and he has only caused more stress and strain then to do anything helpful. It's his way or the highway. He does not have my babies in mind, he only has money. He will not look out for the best interests of you or your babies.

I'm not a patient but I haven't heard good things about him. He brushed off my friend's complaints of severe pain in her pelvic area. She finally flew to Oahu for a second opinion and had to immediately have surgery for ovarian cancer!

I refuse to return to this OB/GYN. Right off the bat, he made me sign a contract before he examined me stating that I wouldn't switch doctors during my pregnancy and that I HAD to give birth at Hilo Medical Center. Then, after my c-section, I suffered from seroma. He did not give us correct information on how to clean to wound and he instructed us to dress the wound in a manner that was not the most efficient. I ended up with a major infection and he gave me the choice of quitting nursing and taking a certain antibiotic or going to a general surgeon. Going to the general surgeon was the best choice we made, because he treated the wound correctly and I healed up nicely after.
