Awesome !!! Dr. Mekhail and his staff @ Parkview were incredible! I had a C5-C6 spinal fusion with amazing results! Pain free from the moment I woke up!! No rehab, just rest. I did not realize how bad the pain was until the surgery was completed, I would recommend Dr. Mekhail 1000%!!!

From my initial consultation with Dr. Mekhail until my final follow up visit after my neck surgery, Dr. Mekhail was patient and willing to answer any questions I had in a way that made me feel comfortable and that I was in the best of hands. The procedure that was done was an Anterior Cervical Dysectomy & Fusion (ACDF) of my C5-C7 Vertebrae. Today, 3.5 months after surgery I am 100% pain free and owe it all to Dr, Mekhail and his assistant Jim Hannah.

Dr. Mekhail is an excellent surgeon who is compassionate, professional, listens well and always give me the time I need to discuss my health concerns. He is surrounded by a professional, caring PA, Jim Hanna and his nurse Susie. They always answer telephone calls and return them promptly if not available. My back has never been better, one year post op and I am free of pain. I highly recommend Dr. Mehail, his PA Jim Hanna and his entire staff.

I would like to say that Dr. Mekhail changed my life, I was suffering from a cyst in my spine that was causing severe nerve pain down my left leg to my foot. My visits with Dr. Mekhail were informative and he helped me understand exactly what was going on with me. He is a good listener and understanding of what a person is going through. He explained the procedure(surgery) to remove the cyst and performed it, and now nearly two months later i'm nearly 100 percent. Highly recommend!!

This is the second time Dr. Mekhail has operated on me. the first time was for my upper neck which I was in pain for, after surgery the pain is all gone and I've and was great. the second operation was for my lower back after suffering for years with sciatic nerve and pain in both legs, I had tried shots physical therapy, and exercises the man told me the only way to fix the problem was to fuse my lower back. this was done two months ago and today I have no pain whatsoever and feel great.

I am so grateful for Dr. Mekhail and his team (Jim)! Due to Dr. Mekhail's quick ability to diagnosis my condition I was able to to get into surgery swiftly. My recovery has been painless and quick, I am almost back to normal strength after a month from multi-level cervical fusion surgery.

Dr. Mekhail was very understanding, provided me with all the available options and took the time to explain each one. Performed my back surgery 5 months ago, best decision I've ever made. No complications at all.

Dr. Mekhail went well above the extra mile when contacted to come in to perform an emergency surgery on my 89 year old mother at 11:00pm at night knowing he had an early morning surgery an hour away the following day. I truly believe had he not been so compassionate and performed the surgery there Ismaili no doubt my mother would have been overtaken by the extreme excruciating pain she’s had been enduring for several days. My family is forever grateful for his dedication and commitment.

Love doctors like Dr. Mekhail. They really know what they're doing. And they make their patients and everyone around them feel secure and confident in their plan of action. From the moment I came to him about some spinal stenosis it was like, "oh, this will be fine. We'll knock this right out and you'll be walking without pain in no time." And that's exactly what happened. He cared about my pain and wasted no time in managing it. Thanks Dr. Mekhail!

I was experiencing lower back pain for approximately 3 months and tried a variety of treatments through primary care and primary physicians. Dr. Mekhail evaluated the previous treatments and results. He advised minimally invasive surgery would be required. He was compassionate, frank and thoroughly explained the surgical procedure and pre/post operative care. I couldn't have had a better surgeon.

Excellent ability to explain everything, even to a nervous teenager. Surgery and recovery were smooth and exactly as he had explained prior to surgery.

I first saw Dr. Mekhail in 2011 after seeing doctors in difference areas and the doctors gave me and injection in my BACK to reduce the pain, he said I am referring you to Doctor Mekhail.. After being check by him, he said my health was good enough to have the surgery at the age of 72 and. it was successful. On September 5th 2017, he performed Cervical C4-6 Anterior Cervical Decompression and I am doing well..

The only Dr. I would ever trust. Three back surgeries and every one successful. Earlier in my life had back issue and only Dr. Mekhail was able to correct my issue. Him & his team are by far the best. I have recommended associates that have struggled with their back issues and they to have communicated that they wished they had known Dr. Mekhail up front. Trust is so important and you know immediately that he is a true professional. Note:Never push surgery as first option.

I would like to start out by saying how greatful we are to Dr. Mekhail for the excellent work he did on our daughter. She has scoliosis of the spine and it was very severe, but instead of making a generalized decision about the way to proceed with her surger, he thought outside the box and looked to her future, which was her growing curve, her wanting to be active in sports, and her general health. If I had to do this over again I would not do anything different.
