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).
