Patient Reviews
Nov 10, 2021
I drove my dad from Fresno to see Dr. Shinohara. He treated (66 Seeds) my dad's Prostate Cancer over 10 years ago. My dad is now 86 years old and is still cancer free. He had no side effects and was back to normal the following day. Dr. Shinohara is very skilled and he was very kind to my dad. We highly recommend him!
