Scottsdale, AZ |
Did the surgery and then washed his hands of me. Had to call and call to get ahold of him. Didn't feel like he cared one bit.
in Yuma, AZ |
Exceptional professional in his field.
in Phoenix, AZ |
Excellent! I have had two treatments by Dr. Nakaji and the following those treatments when I was home, Dr. Nakaji called me at home to see how I was doing. He shows he is concerned for his patients. I never had any post-op issues.
