Dr. Taizo Nakano, Medical Director, Vascular Clinical Medical Co-Director
Dr. Nakano's clinical interests include general hematology, specifically inherited and acquired bone marrow failure syndromes, immune thrombocytopenia, inherited and acquired hemolytic anemias, iron metabolism, disorders of bleeding and clotting, vascular birthmarks, malformations, tumors. (Quote from a patient in January 2021) Dr. Nakano made sure we had a plan and is available to our Pediatrician and other specialists. He knew we needed to see Neurology and kept us focused on what to do next. He was willing to see there are rare conditions we may have overlooked... So much made sense finally!

Dr. Jennifer Armstrong, Stroke and Neurovascular Neurology
While in medical school, I discovered that working with brain-injured children was a rewarding privilege. Children’s disabilities not only affected themselves but the entire family unit. The more I worked with these children, the more I felt that if we were able to prevent brain injury before birth, the personal, familial, and societal benefits would be substantial. I have been able to combine my research interests in pregnancy with my passion for caring for disabled children and their families.
