Dr. Kuwada's Experience

Patient Feedback

I was operated on by Dr. Kuwada for tongue cancer in December. I had no risk factors and he immediately saw me and performed surgery. Not only is he at the top of his field but he cares about his patients, their families, your full recovery. He is calm and caring. I believe that he saved my life and I recommend him without hesitation. I could have gone to any cancer center in the country but I am so blessed to have him in our state. Recommend without hesitation.
