Consistently very very thorough - each time. Knowledgeable, keeps up his skills- especially with woman and cardiology. Good female patient advocate. Patient, respectful with my prepared list of concerns"questions. Engaged listener. Great bedside manner. Professional. Empathy with my concerns genetic concerns of the female members who prematurely died at NWM of cadiology issues. Mikati is cut from the same cloth as Dr Richard Melhman they don't make doctors like them anymore everything is rushed, only business not about healing and people. Thank you Dr Mikati

My audio call for a first consultation included a thorough discussion of my health issues. The doctors asked a lot of questions, made adjustments to medications and have initiated a plan going forward. My husband has been a NWM patient for over a decade. We have learned, through mistakes made at doctors in our semi rural town, to take the drive and go to some of the best doctors available in the Midwest.
