"Dr. Nakano is the reason I'm still here today. I was born with a heart defect but didn't find out until almost my 55th birthday. I was working and fell ill. The doctors did a series of tests to finally find out that one valve was bad possibly another.

The rest is history. I told him after the surgery I wanted to give him a big hug and thank him . He didn't understand at first. They translated for him. I will never forget he did the surgery on my 55th birthday on a Sunday Labor day weekend. I was and still am beyond impressed. 🤟 Thank you Doc. "
