Dr Mecklai was so knowledgeable, communicative, and honest. She was very kind and eloquent, without any sugarcoating. I'm very happy with Dr Mecklai. When I was very anxious, she was very keen to provide me with comfort. And she was also very friendly and called me directly when our video chat was unexpectedly disconnected.

Provocative, nasty, arrogant physician. May be a good physician (I won’t stick around to find out) but she certainly should attend a course at charm school.

Tele-visit due to Typhoid Trump’s lethal “””HOAX””” Coronavirus. This was a six month cardio checkup. Thank G-D my heart is at 100% today, so the visit was more about being pro-active in maintaining my general health during this plague.
