Dr. Matsuoka was outstanding. He listened to me very well and never rushed me. He connected with me intellectually and emotionally. I appreciated that he wasn't typing on his computer during my visit. He was honest and straightforward about questions he couldn't answer. I'm completely confident that he has a thorough understanding of the literature and when he said he didn't know the answer, it's because no one can really answer the questions. I left the appointment feeling so much better even though I don't know if my tinnitus will improve. He inspired great confidence. And if all that isn't enough, he has great hair.
