Dr. Mukai is a fabulous listener, superb physician and her staff is outstanding. I was extremely concerned about my back injury; she and her highly trained PA Clarisse have provided continuing care that has the ache resolving, range of motion improving and strength returning. Highly recommend Dr. Mukai and her entire team! 5 stars!

Dr. Mukai and her team (Cherish) have always provided me with great medical advice. They always take time to listen to how I’m doing and suggest ways I can continue with my back recovery. Although experiencing flare ups is inevitable and somewhat depressing, they are comforting and I feel like they are as committed as I am to dealing and living with my back issue. I’m optimistic about my prognosis and about recovering without having to have a back surgery.

Dr. Mukai is excellent. She is very thorough and truly listened to me. She was able to locate the source of my pain after many years of suffering from back pain. The injection was no more than a bee sting and was so worth it. Dr. Mukai’s staff is awesome... very positive and responsive. I absolutely 100% recommend Dr. Mukai.

Dr. Makai and her PA took great care of me. I threw my back out during Covid 19 and did a tellamed appointment call with her PA. She was very detailed and covered everything. I was impressed with the ability to See the Dr. on the iPad and get great personal care.

Dr. Mukai will see you for your first appointment. After that, regardless of your circumstances, your appointment is considered a “follow-up” and you must see her PA for appointments. I made my appointment (6months since my last appointment, new pain new and worsening issue) and was told the doctor will be in the office and will see you if you would prefer .... which i prefer to see an md when the next step is injections near my spine or surgery but i guess i am high mainenance. Sat in room for an hour and she refused to see me. Just ended up leaving without a visit. THIS IS DISGRACEFUL MEDICAL CARE ..... i wouldnt even call it that. It is not care at all. Shame on her for her poor treatment and disregard for patients. Dont waste your time.

I totally trust the expertise and knowledge of Dr. Mukai. She spends the time to make sure you understand the issues. She is also teaches new doctors he methods and technical skills. The one last thing I recommend her for, if you need shots in the knees, you can trust you will feel absolutly no pain.

I have seen Dr. Mukai and her advanced practice providers for over five years. It is easy to schedule appointments and procedures. She listens attentively and is interested in your progress and pain relief. When surgical evaluation is indicated, she does not defer the referral.
