    I got a small cut in my lower leg last month and I asked Karina if Dr Hirai can stitch it up for me. Karina was very accomodating and kind to get me in. Both of them made me feel comfortable during the visit.I don't work for Dr. Hirai but he is a very cheeful and very friendly doctor. It always amazes me whenever I hear him talk in spanish with his spanish speaking patients.Karina is always sweet and polite with the patients. She's flexible, multitasker and dedicated to her job. Both her and Yvonne are awesome assistants of Dr Hirai.

    My husband needed a Hernia Repair and we wanted the best Surgeon for him. We went to one Surgeon and my husband didn't feel comfortable. We live in Fresno and traveled to San Jose after hearing about Dr. Hirai being a great Surgeon. My husband was in a lot of pain when we arrived at his office. Dr. Hirai explained the surgery to Jason and said, he could get him in the next day. The receptionist Christy was very helpful in getting all the paperwork done for us and his follow up appt. scheduled. when we arrived at Regional Medical Center of San Jose the staff and Nurses were so friendly. Dr. Hirai came in before surgery and explained what he was doing again and asked my husband if he had any questions. When surgery was over Dr. Hirai came and talked to me in the waiting room and said everything went great, and asked if I had any questions. He said to call if we had any concerns or any questions. Dr. Hirai called to check on him, and the office called us as well. It been just over 2 weeks and he is healing well. We are so thankful that we found a great Surgeon! We would travel 2 1/2 hours if we ever needed to see Dr. Hirai for any type of surgery again! Thank you Dr. Hirai! Jason was in so much pain before surgery and we are so thankful that you were the one to do his surgery!Debbie and Jason E.

    I was recomended to Dr Hirai by my primary care doctor Elizabeth. I was at my heaviest weight and tired of my issues with weight. Depression, anxiety, bad knees, the worst self esteem, after losing and gaining more then 60lbs for more then 20 years, I was at my ending point. I walked into Dr Harai office and really felt comforable, Christy is awesome, she is organized, always with a smile on her face, and very patient, always willing to loan a hand.  The staff is just awesome. When I first met Dr Harai, I was instantly impressed, well first off, he is a very handsome man, nice friendly smile, and very young, which made me nervous, I questioned how many sleeve surgeries he's done and how much experience.  HE was more then qualified, after my final approval, I was so nervous, but he always put my worries at ease.  My surgery was 10/15/13 and thank God, no complications. I am down 62 lbs now and I am so thankful to the Dr and staff for quite literally saving my life.  This was the best decision and the hardest one for me.  But if it wasnt for Dr Harai, I wouldnt be able to say that I now feel comfortable in my own skin and am now on my way to a new healthier me.  I want to thank the staff and Dr and am forever in your debt.  I know you were doing your job, but compassion and honesty dont always come with that and when you're at your most vunerable and miserable, it definetely helps to know there are people that care!!!!!!!!!! I posted a pic of my before and after. and will always look at it and remember where I was and hwo far i've come.  (=

    This has really worked for me.  It's changed so much in my life.  Besides the looks, weight that I have lost....I feel a lot more better.  More energy, I am sleeping better, I am more active and no more medicine!
