dr. Nakamoto had the best bedside manners. he took time to thoroughly understand the nature of the injury, my concerns, what I'd tried, what worked, and then did a thorough examination. he walked me through 6 x-rays showing me where he was looking for possible problems, identifying a minor bone spur, and showing no fractures. he shares with me his hypothesis of bursitis, and explained how common it was, normalized my injury, and explained the timeframe for resolution. he gave me options for treatment, both oral and topical, as well as just giving it time, told me about efficacy of all options and answered all questions. he let me choose the treatment option I felt was best for me. it was one of the better experiences I've had with doctors. thoroughly impressed and satisfied. I'd highly recommend him.
