My little boy Matthew has been seeing Dr. Craig Nakamura for almost 13 years now, since 2005. We are so blessed to have the THE MOST kind, caring, concerned pulmonologist on this planet. We can't imagine our life with out Dr. Nakamura, Ryan Yoshikawa and his entire staff who have help to make our life so much more comfortable and happier. Matthew has known Ryan since birth, too. We trust Ryan completely.

He is a genius, a magician, an excellent person, a great doctor very accurate in his diagnoses and very precise in the indications, he taught me to use the stethoscope to listen to my daughter's lungs, never another doctor had instructed me of that way, for me he is the best pulmonologist in Las Vegas, 100% recommended for children ????

We brought our daughter to see Dr. N because other doctors were treating her mysterious cough and dry mouth for asthma. Dr. N suggested that her symptoms were digestive in nature and treated her as such. Her cough is gone and dry mouth reduced. We were able to follow-up with Dr. N via text messaging day or night and always received a timely response. Dr. N is personable and cares about his patients. Highly recommend.

Dr. Nakamura is an okay doctor but all he cares about is $$$ - that is his # 1 priority!! He will charge you for EVERYTHING!! He will do the full spectrum of testing on your child even though it's not necessary just to make more $$$.

Dr. Nakamura has been our primary lung specialist since our son was 6 months old and he is now 4 years old. His breathing has gotten so much better since we have done everything exactly as the Dr told us too. All the medicine he prescribe is very effective. We have notice that our sons asthma is almost not existent. He used to have trouble breathing in his sleep and after heavy running and playing. Now it is never a problem for him. Dr. Nakamura has definitely help to strengthen his lungs.
