A co-worker recommended Dr. Nakamura to me when I was new in the area. I found him to be very knowledgeable and personable, but getting a callback from him is almost impossible. We have left medical forms with him to fill out and finally after several calls and missed deadlines, we have received what we needed. His staff is friendly but I feel that they are frustrated also - put into a bad position when they know what we need is sitting on his desk, waiting. He may just have too many patients

Listens to my concerns and takes the time needed. I feel very comfortable with him.

Each year I was trying to deal with having my blood work done at a hospital lab when codes did not accompany the lab work needed. Each year I would tell Dr Nakamura that the hospital lab needed them and each year I would have the same problem. Last year a new blood lab test was added, in writing, without a reason for ordering it. The lab called office and since neither the office staff or Nakamura got back to the lab, I was personally charged for the requested blood work. Not allowing me more

He promises a call back but never does. Promises to call a med in but won't until you call 100 times and the staff are left in a crappy position. He's happy to deal work 1 visit stuff but after that, good luck. Don't ever expect a call back or follow up. Office is clean, 75:100 staff are nice. Burns through help dt difficulty to work with.

Dr Nakamura is a wonderful physician. He is knowledgeable and understanding. He explains information in a manner all can understand. He is warm, genuine, caring, calm and trustworthy. Our whole family goes to him now and we are very happy we are in his care. He is very popular, so it is sometimes difficult to get an appointment on short notice but I have left messages for him and he responds within 24 hours. He really cares about his patients.

I'm a private duty home care agent with medical training and was there with a client , we expressed some concerns to the doctor himself he was very condescending, quick to brush things off and treated me like some lying idiot
