Excellent orthopedic doctor.
Dr. Nakamoto was friendly, informative, sympathetic and included me in the choice of treatment.
Dr. Nakamoto is extremely kind and thorough. You don´t find doctors like him anymore!
Really like him.
Like Dr. Nakamoto very much. Very thorough and relatable.
Excellent all around!
Very thoughtful care and attention to my needs and questions.
Dr. Nakamoto & the staff in the exam room were very caring, explained things in laymans terms so they were understandable. Took time, never felt rushed. Great office, definitely would recommend.
Dr. Nakamoto is outstanding.
Greg was outstanding. He listened, asked questions and talked to me about options. Very professional at all times!
Having never met him before I found him to be excellent in every way.
Very friendly and compassionate.
This is the first time that I gave highest score to all questions asked Dr. Nakamoto is a jewel. I wish that all doctors would be like him. He loves to help patients and it shows. His manners are great. He earned my respect. 8. 45 minutes.
Dr. Nakamoto shows very much concern for patients and wants to get to the bottom of things.
Great doctor. I have complete confidence in him. I especially enjoy his interaction as a "teacher" to his resident.
Left spot feeling concerns professional & completely satisfied. Outstanding care!
Dr. Nakamoto kept trying and typing on the computer instead of looking at my face and listen plus he ordered MRI but failed to told me I am going to be in the tube all the way. I could´ve ask for a anxiety pill or something. He said only my legs will be in there. I wish I´d be informed well. Dr. Nakamoto - (Kirkland).
I would answer all questions the same for all visits I´ve had with Dr. Nakamoto and the orthopedic department. I am very grateful for their care and attention.
First time I ever had an MD suggest a call him by first name, immediately setting the amicable tone of a relaxed exam that encouraged discourse.
Dr. Nakamoto is very thoughtful, gives clear explanations & I would recommend him highly. Very smart also!
Dr. Greg is attentive, competent, personable and ALWAYS geared toward my goal of getting back to my active life.
First time seeing this provider. I appreciated his communication skills & thoroughness.
First time to see this doctor, was very good but hard to judge correctly from one visit.
Very friendly & professional.
Very good doctor. Easy to talk to and good listener.
Dr. Nakamoto always seems caring, I feel informed about the decision making process, and he did the least painful knee injection I have ever had.
VERY GOOD VISIT
I enjoyed my visit with Dr. Nakamoto. He was precepting a UW resident and made sure to include both of us in the educational piece of the visit. He is an excellent teacher and clinician.
Dr. Nakamoto was very friendly, thorough and explained my medical condition in a way easy to understand. He had my x-ray & other medical history in front of him.
Wish he used my Virginia Mason email response rather than have someone call me.
