Eugene Yamamoto, PA-C an Orange County native, started his career in medicine after graduating from the University of California Irvine in biological sciences. Eugene then went on to serve his community for the next two years as an emergency medical technician. During this time he gained a vast understanding of acute illness and critical care while responding to medical emergencies.
As a graduate of the physician assistant program at the Marshall B. Ketchum University and after many hours of training with multiple Facial Plastic Surgeons including Dr. Furze, Eugene then took his expertise to the next level by further specializing in Facial Plastic, Nasal & Sinus Surgery.
While training with Dr. Furze, Eugene proved to be an invaluable and knowledgeable member of the team early on. Dr. Furze did not want to miss the opportunity of bringing Eugene on board and asked him to join the team immediately after graduation. Dr. Furze refers to Eugene as his “right hand man” and trusts him with his patients as he is very intuitive, has a great bedside manner and is highly skilled.
Eugene sees new patients as well as follow-ups in the office as well as assists Dr. Furze in surgery. He has become a critical member of the practice and has been very well received from patients and members of the staff, alike.
