Patient Comments (4)
Hilo, HI |
I had to fly interisland to see him and was left disappointed. I got in early to see him but he barely spent 10 minutes speaking with me. He didn't make me feel comfortable. He barely asked any questions and didn't take my concerns seriously. Waste of time and money.
Pearl City, HI |
Always easy to talk to. He gives you options and allows you to choose what works best for you.
Honolulu, HI |
Has or chooses to not use good bedside manner. Unprofessional. Asked personal exam questions in open area rather than take his time to do it in exam room.
in Wailuku, HI |
Office staff are great. Dr. Nakayama is awesome. I wish there was a Rheumatologist on Maui like him. He takes the time to thoroughly exam you and listens to any concerns and addresses them. He's awesome - went to him for years before relocating to another island.
