your health in mind

 

Long gone are the days when a patient had just one doctor - likely one who had known the family for most of their life. Today patients live in a world of multiple medical specialties, incorporating rapidly evolving technological, pharmacological, surgical and biophysical techniques; complementary modalities; supplements; dietary and lifestyle information; and an ever-growing and often confusing amount of information on the Internet.

It is a patient’s duty to be well informed and to do his or her best to understand diagnostic reports.

Dr. Tsuchiyama is committed to help in this process.  To do so she identifies and follows-up with past, present and potentially risky future health issues.

Because of her relationships with the community of physicians both in Hawai'i and on the Mainland, Dr. Tsuchiyama can help you to identify when and what specialist you should visit or recommend appropriate testing.
