If you can do one thing to help your skin it's to go outdoors and enjoy life! But in doing so, protect your skin from sunburns with protective clothing and sunscreen.

Dr. Nakata is in a word..."spectacular ." She takes her time to make sure you're okay thoroughly from head to toe and then gives you ways to not only have smooth skin but also to grow skin...really! Ask her about it.

I like how she takes time & actually delivers patient care. Something that is missing from so many health providers. Most of the time I feel like the doctor is rushed from one patient to another. Thank you Dr. Nakata for making me feel human. I have referred her to at least 5-7 friends/family, all of which love her.

I was hospitalized for a sudden severe skin rash for 8 days at Columbia St. Mary's Burn/Skin Unit. I called Dr. Nakata's office and she was able to see me that same day after being released from the hospital. She took extra amount of time going over everything that occurred and examining me and taking genuine interest in the proper care and follow-ups along with her willingness to work together my oncologist on medications and treatment plans.
