Specialties

  • Psychiatry

    A psychiatrist is a doctor with specific training in the diagnosis and treatment of mental illness.
    He or she can not only provide the counseling necessary to both diagnose and treat a patient, but can also prescribe medication when needed. In some cases, a psychiatrist will only provide the medication and the counseling will be provided by another healthcare specialist, like a certified counselor or psychologist.

    Once a diagnosis is made, these specialists may use behavior or cognitive therapy in order to address the patient's condition, or a multitude of other types of therapy, in conjunction with or in place of medication.

Dr. Nakamura is an Excellent Doctor!

I've been seeing Dr. Nakamura for over four years now and have found him to be superior to any psychiatrist I have seen in the past. One of my main issues is insomnia, and Dr. Nakamura has used his genius to turn a guy who was getting two, maybe three hours of sleep a night, to a guy who can rest assured that he'll get at least eight hours of REM sleep per night. Dr. Nakamura knows the psychopharmaceutical field like the back of his hand and he is always cordial, on time, efficient and most importantly of all; caring. He cares about his patients more than just about any doctor I've come across in my life. Dr. Nakamura is an A+ doctor who turned my life around, and for that I will be forever indebted. Also, his protege "Judson," is excellent; very friendly and remarkably knowledgeable.

Great with meds.

I have been seeing a psychiatrist for the last 4 years due to anxiety and sleep issues. Dr. Nakamura worked with me to change my meds and I have been doing much better. He is caring and knowledgeable and worked with me to change my meds so that I have less side effects. Sleep and anxiety are much better.

Great with medication

Dr. Nakamura helped me with my meds. I was on the same thing for 4 years and not doing much better. After 3 months of seeing Dr. Nakamura, he changed my medication and my anxiety is gone and I am able to sleep.
