Dr. Nakagawa patiently explained the issues with my eyes. He was very knowlegeable and caring. He did not rush though the exam like many other doctors. He thoroughly examined the issues with my eyes. This is my first time visiting Dr. Nakagawa's office. I think I have found the best ophthalmologist in LA. I will definitely refer him to my family and friends.

It starts with being able to book the appointment online which is great. The doctor is taking you in on time. He explains every thing during and after the examen to you and is not rushing. His equipment is up-to-date. And P.S. - parking is validated! From the first to the last second - a very good experience.

Great experience with the doctor and staff. However, still have not received my RX. Was told I would receive it after my appointment via email. Called a few days later to ask again and still no RX. Would have appreciated a hand written RX or an instantaneous print out. Have left a voicemail and sent a few emails. Hoping for a response.

Came back after my initial eye visit because I found I still couldn't see clearly with my new progressive lenses. Dr. Nakagawa was patient, concerned, informative and made sure to explain things in a clear non-condescending manner. He mentioned with progressives it can be tricky based on the lenses themselves and that my prescription was still spot on. Took my glasses back to have them adjust. The kindest, most patient and informative optometrist I have been to. Would highly recommend him.

I went to see Dr Nakagawa when something flew into my eye.I was soooo worried when Dr Nakagawa said he found a couple of small pieces of metal in my eye. But he got them out in a blink of an eye before I even knew it. Painless and so quick! Definitely see him again if I ever have another issue.

My experience visiting Dr. Nakagawa today was great. He and his staff answered all my questions, walked me through every exam and took the time to find me the perfect prescription for my eyesight. His office was equipped with the latest technology in eye examining machines. They didn't even have to dilate my pupils, they have this new machine that is able to take photos of behind your eye without it. By far the best optometry experience I've ever had. They even validate parking so it's free for your visit.

Dr Nakagawa is one of those rare doctors where he puts the patients first and always makes me look forward to seeing him. He always takes the time to explain everything that is going on with my eyes.

I found Dr. Nakagawa by doing a search online and based on all of his excellent reviews, I can see why all of his clients are thoroughly pleased! I took my 8 year old daughter in for an eye exam and Dr. Nakagawa was extremely patient, kind, and very friendly. He took the time to explain everything to my daughter and I, and she felt very comfortable and at ease the entire time. He was even able to fit me in for an appointment as well, and he was extremely knowledgeable and thorough throughout the examination process. Dr. Nakagawa's staff is just as friendly and very good with children! I will definitely be recommending Dr. Nakagawa to all of my friends and family! My daughter and I are looking forward to our next appointment with him! He is truly amazing!

Dr. Nakagawa is exactly what I've been looking for. Sadly, so man optometrists are more like car salesman. Constantly upsellingand after their own interests (making money). Dr Nakagawa is the opposite. He actually downsold me regarding lenses explaining that for my prescription the more expensive lenses wouldnt help (I only need glasses for reading). He is polite, professional and seems to have a big heart. Love the dude and will be coming back for years.

Great experience with Dr. Nakagawa. He was very professional and took the time to go over all the results with me. I I would highly recommend him to anyone who has any eye complications.

Dr. Nakagawa is the most compassionate, patient, and comprehensive doctor I have. He listens, responds, and has always been "spot on" with my contact lens and glasses prescriptions. I have been his patient for about 15 years (maybe more!) and I would never go to anyone else. I highly recommend Dr. Nakagawa. He is an outstanding eye doctor and a rare find in the field of health care in general!

Dr. Nakagawa and his staff were pleasant, professional and thorough. This was my first visit - my frames were broken and the lenses intact. Although, I needed immediate help, my situation was minor. They gave me prompt attention and solved my frame situation with quick research and I walked out in about 40 minutes with the perfect frames for my lenses - both fashionable and at a reasonable price. It was a very happy encounter with them personally and professionally. This is a must return for me with any of my future medical eye needs.
