After years of surgically treating breast cancer, Dr. Nakamura is eager to focus her expertise on counseling patients on its prevention. She is the Director of the Cancer Prevention Clinic at the Comprehensive Breast Center of Arizona which educates and follows patients with a higher risk of developing breast cancer. Her goal is to empower patients with increased awareness and a strategy for early detection or risk reduction.

Being a fellowship trained breast surgeon, Dr. Nakamura is uniquely qualified to discuss preventative surgeries. Dr. Nakamura completed her Breast Surgery Oncology fellowship at the University of Southern California with the nationally renowned breast surgeon, Dr. Melvin Silverstein, and has contributed a chapter in his book. She graduated from Tulane University School of Medicine and completed General Surgery residency at Hahnemann Hospital in Philadelphia. 

In her spare time, Dr. Nakamura is an avid softball mom and enjoys spending time with her family.
