    How was your appointment with Dr. Makani?

    Jul 09, 2022
    I have nothing but very positive comments and praise for this brilliant compassionate doctor. He started working with me in August of 2019, and I truly feel like he and his assistants are part of my family. He is always available, as is his staff. I am grateful to have found such a great doctor for my rather serious health issues.
