Care Philosophy

I believe that knowledgeable patients make the best decisions about their own treatment. That's why I explain every step of the diagnostic process and all treatment options.

Patient Comments (1)
in Grand Junction, Co |
Dr. Jeff Nakano is what you hope every doctor is like. He's brilliant, kind, to the point, transparent, willing to let you ask tough questions, open to second opinions (even willing to get them himself), and most of all - he cares. Typically, doctors will only call you to tell you bad news. Dr. Nakano has called me on multiple occasions only to tell me good news or to just "check on my condition". If you ever get the chance to see Dr. Nakano, take it! He's a once in a lifetime physician.
