Dr. Nakano provided a strong and compassionate relationship at my visit. We worked together to determine my desired outcome and I trust him for all my future cosmetic needs. His skills are unparallel to any prior physician I have visited.

Dr. Nakano is an exceptional surgeon with whom I hold in highest regard. He provided me with the best outcome and I am so happy with the results. He is most kind and generous in answering questions and concerns. The aftercare has been equally impressive and I wish to offer a special thank you to both Wanda and Lisa for their professional assistance. Dr. Nakano is the best!
