Very pleasant visit. Waited about 15 minutes then went through some tests with the Optometrist Tech who was super friendly and thorough in setting expectations and explaining what was going on. Then met with Dr. Nakagawa who was also very friendly,approachable, and thorough in explaining the test results and next steps. Also want to throw in that the Receptionist was incredibly friendly and sweet. Just a great experience that won't leave you disappointed.

Dr Nakagawa was extremely thorough and took his time to explain my eye health. He has up to date technology, such as not needing to dilate my eyes.

I've had ongoing issues with my eyes due to irritation and extreme dry eye and Dr Nakawaga was incredible! He ran several eye health tests on a number of modern diagnostics machines and was able to confirm my eyes were perfectlyhealthy with the exception of damage to the tear structure- ie dry eye. He prescribed an eyedrop solution that has transformed the health of my eyes within a week. This has greatly improved my comfort and vision and has also removed the nasty red color. De Nakagawa was also extremely informative throughout the visit and I left feeling far better informed about my eyes and vision health overall. Would highly recommend this doctor.

Such a great visit! First of all, the building has a private parking lot and they validate which is great. The staff at the office are the nicest people and they are so welcoming and easy to talk to. Doctor Nakagawa,really took the time to go over details with the progression of my eyes and even gave me sample contacts to try to ensure the prescription was correct. I would highly recommend him and his team!

One of the best healthcare experiences I've had. Super friendly & incredibly thorough - way beyond any other optometrist I've been to. There appears to be much more of a focus on caring for your eyes than trying to sell you frames. Excellent.

Dr. Nakagawa is the best! HIs equipment is all brand new and state-of-the-art (he even has a machine that dilates your pupils just for a second, as opposed to the drops that take three hours to wear off) and he isincredibly personable, knowledgeable and helpful. His assistant is awesome as well. I always leave the office in a better mood than I came in with. I would highly recommend Dr. Nakagawa to anyone who cares about their eyes.

I've been coming to Dr. Nakagawa for three years and now and I couldn't be happier. I am considering getting Lasik this year and it helps having someone as smart, courteous and professional as Jason to help walk me through theprocess. I don't think I would do it without him!

Had a great visit with Dr. Nakagawa and his techs (Kirby). Both explained everything so so well and answered every question. I actually learned things about the eye that I didn't know! I also appreciated that they didn't do dilation (whichputs you out of commission for a few hours, work-wise).

Dr Nakagawa is everything I want in my eye doctor. Polite, efficient, kind, and thorough. Not a ton of small talk -- I was in and out in < 25 minutes. They repaired my glasses for free even though I wasthere for contacts. He's a little understaffed in the very early morning appointments so you may have better luck later in the day.
