Dr. Kobayashi is a talented and caring orthopedic surgeon. I recently saw him because I had severe wrist pain and had trouble putting any pressure on it. Dr. Kobayashi took pictures of my wrist, diagnosed the problem, and gave me an injection. It is two weeks later and I am free from pain and have full use of my hand/wrist. You won't find a better orthopedic surgeon.

My experience is from two office visits. Dr. Kobayashi was professional and kind. He offered potential solution to the issues causing me pain. I appreciate his concerned demeanor. I decided to tough it out for a while more, but would return to him if I needed additional help.

Dr. Kobayashi saved four fingers on my left hand after I tried to remove them with a miter saw. Two ER doctors said I'd probably lose two to my fingers. Dr. Ky reconstructed nerves, vessels and bone saving all four. He is simply the best.
