Dr. Hayashi has been my doctor for over 25 years. I don't know what I'd have done all these years without his "being there for me". When I retired back to my hometown of Walla Walla (275 miles SE of Seattle) I chose to maintain my relationship with Dr. Hayashi and Virginia Mason and commute as needed/as possible to check-in with him. That is how important his role is my Primary Health Care Provider.

I went in with swollen bee stings and an eye twitch. I went out happy. Dr. Hayashi has deep science based medical curiosity of mind. My eye twitch slowed up and on reflection, until this minute was totally forgotten as it's gone away! With his suggestion I now have a new addition to my over the counter meds to reduce swelling and itch of mug bites.

He did an excellent job explaining the recommended personal hygiene recommendations. He was caring, professional, and a very good communicator.

I transferred my primary care to Dr. Hayashi because of his excellent reputation as a doctor. After two visits, I could not be happier with his care and concern. He's highly intelligent and experienced, and provides information easily and expertly. My only concern is my fear of him retiring before I've had some years under his care.
