Dr. Mikati was wonderful. So kind and concerned about the patient. Listens and answers all questions. He even called on a Sunday to check on our health to see if we had any further questions. We would highly recommend him and I have, to my brother. We feel so good about finding Dr. Mikati.

This was our first visit to Dr Mikati. We hope to develop a good relationship. There is a lot to take in and visits happen fast. Often there are questions you think of after the visit that you wished you had asked. Dr Mikati was friendly and wants to be helpful. He was happy for my husband that his health situation had improved.

Every appt. with Dr. Mikati is a good experience. He is the ideal doctor patients want. He listens attentively, provides test data, is up-to-date on current research, and shares it with you and then discusses changes in medicines if needed and further testing if needed. I am completely satisfied with his emphatic care.
