What People Say About Dr. Karen Nakamoto, MD
Reply
Dr. Nakamoto is wonderful, and I am very happy with the care I receive from her. Her office staff, on the other hand, are very rude and talk down to (or at) patients. I find it extremely difficult to get an appointment because you have to go through the interrogation by the front office staff before you can get to see Dr. Nakamoto.
