Highly Recommended cardiologist.
Dr. Mecklai takes care of more than my heart. She cares for me as a person, helps me understand why I shouldn't worry about other problems. Gives me good advice, doesn't automatically put me on medication. She is my second internist. She looks at all my tests from other doctors and explains the numbers in my lab work. If you need a cardiologist, I would highly recommend Dr. Mecklai. I am so glad I am in her care.

Extraordinary. Dr. Mecklai was on time, thorough and caring. She gave me all the time we needed together, explained things in an easy to understand way and made sure I had all the information needed to make any decisions. Further, since I live out of state, she made sure I could group my appointments to ease the travel back and forth to New York.

Dr Mecklai has very top educational background, feel she sees patients very much based on her “books” knowledge. I picked her because of her background n her hospital affiliation I feel there is still something 20% of my discomfort Dr Mecklai doesn’t understand my complaints. Maybe because English is my second language? My heart condition has been deteriorating because of my weakening heart?! She thinks all my concerns aren’t heart related areas. I am not being positive about my health n my heart condition Dr Mecklai is young and very pleasant looking doctor, I feel good by just looking at her If she listens to different patients’ experiences she will accumulate lots info in exchange to help different patients needs. Appreciated so much that I missed the scheduled video call because of my own misunderstanding?! But Dr Mecklai called me back in less than 2 hours to make up my missing appointment.
