Physician's Statement: 

A statement from Steven Nakajima MD-
People value fertility more than they do most things. Many women only have one or two children in their entire life, and will often go to great lengths in order to conceive. It appeals to me to work with motivated patients who really want to achieve their goal. It’s very rewarding to care for a patient who seems to have no possible hope of having a child. Some patients have genetic predispositions, previous surgeries, or other unique situations that lead to loss of fertility. We have therapies now where we can restore fertility to those who have lost it. That’s truly life-changing.

It’s still amazing to me that we are developing techniques that no one else has ever figured out. You see these taglines saying “we’re developing tomorrow’s advances”, and they may sound corny but in reality it’s true. We really do have the ability to change someone’s life. I will partner with you to identify innovative treatment options, and achieve your goal in a timely fashion. I believe there’s always a personal treatment option for you that’s unique.

The best doctor and time worth spent

Your rating: 55 1
Dr. Nakajima is the best decision we made. He is very knowledgeable and thorough. I was really nervous during my initial visits but he always made best decisions for us. He suggested the best infertility treatment, he knew the history and explained everything very clearly. I have had miscarriage and ectopic pregnancy both in the past and I am 2 months pregnant now and hoping for safe delivery. Everything well and time worth spent with Dr.Nakajima.

highly recommend!

Dr. Nakajima has a fantastic bedside manner. He never rushes through appointments and always explains the process. He also goes out of his way to include my husband in the conversation rather than just focusing on me the entire time. When we were pregnant with twins, he was genuinely happy for us.
