By the time I had my appointment I had researched the UCS website and others and most of my questions were answered. I realized that there was a lot of information that was not discussed with me including the seriousness of the effect o the tumor on the arteries and veins.

I found the visit short. I wished the doctor could have provided more information and educated (not assuming that the patient is well-versed on the subject) the patient so that he could make a better informed decision.

Since it was a video call the doctor spent time explaining my options. I liked him alot

I feel fortunate to have Dr. Nakakura as my doctor. He has great knowledge to help me as well as being a very good listener.

Dr Nakakura is really one of the most outstanding doctor and surgeon I have met as a cancer patient in particular. (The other doctor I also like is Dr. [name redacted] also from UCSF.) They really care about me as a patient a person and a father in a family. Dr Nakakura always explains things clearly not in a rush and carefully. He is interested in what I have to say how I feel let me express my views and ask questions. He does not rush to judgement and make wise decisions. Having stayed in UCSF after a surgery for a couple of days I want to add that the residents who are working with Dr. Nakakira (e.g. [names redacted] and others) are truly outstanding. Every morning they dropped by. They observed listened and assessed. Very professional. At a human level I enjoy talking to them expressing my feelings and wishes to them as a patient and as someone who just had a surgery. These doctors and future doctors are really very well trained; they work together as a model group. I have hope for all future patients. UCSF you really made the right choices of who to take as residents (and professors). They are a diverse group who are all outstanding in different ways. And they helped me in different ways. (Some made medical decisions. Some chatted with me and made me feel better. Some did medical tasks for me like removing staples. They all did different things but most important of all I felt they care and I could talk to them. They listened.)

this was a surgical consult so medications did not need to be discussed

This was a video appointment. Provider was not in a hurry and answered questions and concerns.

Great experience from parking valet through to doctor. Machine check in reminded me of airport but already done online. Person simply handed me a badge and did not ask for my local scans as requested online. Dr. N saved my life.

Dr Nakakura answered all questions I had and what follow up care with my oncologist. very confident in the care he provides.

I brought scans for Dr. Nakakura to see and nurse uploaded them over an hour before I saw him - but they did not load properly and he could not see them and therefore provide a full explanation of recommendations

Dr. Nakakura is a superb clinician in every way. I am lucky to have him as my surgeon/ongoing medical consultant.
