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.

After many doctor's visits, over many years, Dr. Nakata is my top #1 person! She listens with her mind and heart, and is sensitive to my concern over having basal cell on my face. She asked if I would like my spot to be biopsied and did it pronto, without waiting for another appointment. She came up with medicine help, after my surgery, to regain optimal skin quality. She is the sweetest, caring, and most intelligent doctor wrapped in one! I recommend her to anyone with any skin and allergy ailments. Thank you Dr. Nakata! Kathleen

Thorough exam was done and areas that needed to be checked further were either frozen or removed on the same day which saves another trip. Very satisfied and answered all my questions & recommended a lotion wand that I needed.

It was very stressful going in because I knew I had some questionable areas to examine. As always, Dr. Nakata helped me relax and the exam went well. I had some procedures done and was lightheaded when we finished. Both she and the nurse made sure I was completely fine before I left. Dr. Nakata always explains procedures/results to me thoroughly. She has been my dermatologist since 1995- I wouldn’t go to anyone else-she’s the best!

As a patient with recurring issues with facial basal cell skin growths, I really appreciated that Dr. Nakata took the time to explain the different courses of treatment and why Mohs was the best treatment for my current issues. And she also helped me to understand how certain issues from my younger health history have impacted my skin health in my later years, and prescribed some things to try to help with my current issues. Thank you Dr. Nakata for understanding and easing my concerns and answering my questions. Patrick Joyce
