I understand all the reasons why physicians' interactions with patients become impersonal over time especially in-demand specialists and especially at large busy institutions like UCSF. I was once an RN there myself. But Dr. Nakamura has found some way to keep her relations with her patients very sincere and human. I'm willing to bet most of them would agree with me when I say that I appreciate that as much as her medical expertise. Particularly when you have a chronic illness and frequent healthcare appointments you come to realize that is a very rare and valuable quality in a doctor.

DR. NAKAMURA IS A KIND COMPETENT PHYSICIAN. SHE SPENDS AS MUCH TIME AS SHE NEEDS WITH YOU AND YOU NEVER FEEL AS THOUGH SHE IS RUSHING YOU THROUGH AND ARE JUST ANOTHER NUMBER TO HER. I AM A NURSE AND KNOW THE PRESSURE SHE IS UNDER TO BE ON TIME BUT AS AN ARTHRITIS PATIENT WE JUST CANNOT BE RUSHED. SHE UNDERSTANDS THAT AND IS VERY THOROUGH. UCSF IS FORTUNATE TO HAVE HER AS A PROVIDER.

Dr. Nakamura is a wonderful physician. She takes the time to listen to me and think critically about my symptoms. I have complex health problems spanning several specialties outside of her core specialty of rheumatology. She is able to consider my symptoms in a holistic context. I prioritize my visits to her even if my arthritis pain is not bothering me much as I feel she looks out for my general well being.

Dr. Nakamura is always tuned in to the whole patient. She listens closely always knows who you are and what your situation is and is prepared with helpful suggestions. She is so organized! So thoughtful. I always leave feeling better physically and mentally.

I can't say enough about my experiences w Dr Nakamura; she is smart thorough beyond words kind and always listens and hears me. I have a number of physicians caring for me and Dr Nakamura's wealth of knowledge about both historical and current data is staggering. If I had to say only one thing about Dr Nakaumra it's that I leave there feeling safe--and that's a rare hard to find feeling when you're still on the path to diagnosis. Her expertise thoroughness and demeanor are unmatched.

RA is a mercurial disease and patients' needs will vary so I hope there is patience for providers who are late as there was for me being late.
