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.

Iv'e been with Dr. Nakata probably for 20 years. She is always thorough and takes her time. I have recommended her to a number of people including my family members. I don't know that I can access my records via web site for Forefront dermatology.

I have been a patient of Dr. Nakata's for many years, and would go no where else. She is the best! The only issue I have is 1 of the front desk personnel is not know her name.

Very knowledgeable and she spends a lot of time with us explaining everything. It’s really refreshing, as an RN myself, to have a competent doctor who has that compassion for her profession.

I saw Dr. Nakata a few years ago for an issue where my hands blister and peel down to raw skin since moving into my current home. I had been to 3 other dermatologists before Dr. Nakata and they all said I had eczema but for many reasons I was concerned that was not correct. Finally I saw Dr. Nakata - she was kind, soft spoken, answered ALL my questions, never rushed me and most importantly she suggested I keep gloves on my hands when in the water - like washing dishes, etc. that was it!!! Since moving into this home my hands have blistered to the point of constant pain. It turns out that only the kitchen faucet did not go through the water softener and (my theory) I believe the radon in the Waukesha water was causing the blisters. Sometimes I get lazy and don't want to put on the gloves and sure enough they blister up, peel and raw skin causes terrible pain. This Doctor is very intuitive as well!

Dr. Nakata and her staff are wonderful and most helpful. Her diagnosis and treatment were right on the nose ( and ear and forehead ), and there is nothing that she misses. No cancer cell can escape her expert eye sight and after 2 years under her care, I now look forward to my visits with her.

My husband and I both strongly agree that Dr. Cantieri is a great dermatologist. Yes, his bedside manner is something to be desired but you meet people like that everyday. The most important thing is that he helped my husband! After seeing multi other Dr.s that gave the wrong diagnosis, we saw Dr. Cantieri and he immediatly knew what the prob. was. Yes he was very fast we even kinda giggled about it, but he was RIGHT and FIXED the problem..... thats all that matters to us!
