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.

Dr Mekhail is an exceptional surgeon, very professional with outstanding results He takes time to discuss options with you and are patient with questions My surgery was done with a wonderful outcome and I am so happy that I have my crazy life back! Thank you Dr. Very pleased with him his staff at the hospital and at his Palos office. He, as well as every member of his staff came into my room prior to the surgery introduced themselves to make me feel me feel comfortable and reassured. Outstanding

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.

He explains everything to you so you understand everything he is going to do

Doctor Mekhail was very professional in the way of stating what the problem was and the way to fix it. The surgery was just as explained with no complications and a great result.

I had sciatica back pain. I was getting epidural injections that lasted only 60 days. I met Dr. Mekhail in Palos Hospital . I had micro discectomy on L4 and L5 in Jan.2017. This surgery has made me pain free. I have started golfing again and no longer take any pain meds. I am so glad I had this procedure . Dr Mekhail and his asst. Jim are most kind and helpful. The whole staff is great. Thank you

in Chicago, IL |
The doc was very knowledgeable and caring. I was nervous about having back surgery he put me at ease. I had spinal fusion in may it's now Nov I've felt great for a while I can walk again without nerve pain. I would recommend him to anyone having back surgery I suggest you go talk to him I don't think you will be disappointed. I would like to thank him and everyone involved in my surgery my quality of life has improved greatly.
Orland Park, IL |
I found Dr. Mekhail to be a very kind and gentle man. He was very empathetic, and gave me a great deal of confidence due to his assessment of my problem. He was a patient listener, very pleasant and personable. Dr. Mekhail performed a back procedure and I am happy to say I am without pain! I never thought I would return to normal, my back pain was completely debilitating. I am so grateful. I have every confidence in Dr. Mekhail and would recommend him highly.
in Crestwood, IL |
I had a very difficult spinal fusion surgery. Dr. Mekhail and the staff at Parkview Orthopedic Group were very helpful, caring and professional.
in Tinley Park, IL |
Dr. Mekhail spent time answering all of my questions during my consultation visit and made sure I was clear on what was going to be done during the surgery and made me feel totally comfortable going forward with it. I felt very confident with his knowledge and experience and had no second thoughts on having him perform the cervical spine fusion surgery. After 7 weeks, the surgery has been a success and I owe it all to Dr. Mekhail. I would highly recommend him to anyone needing a similar surgery.
in Tinley Park, IL |
Highly recommend,Excellent Communication and care.
in Oak Forest, IL |
Dr. Mekhail is a very caring, compassionate Doctor. He is super friendly, explains all your options, and explains things in simple terms I could understand. I highly recommend Dr Mekhail for all your spine and shoulder needs. After a couple of years of treatment, no meds were effective for my pain. Dr. Mekail figured out my problems on the first visit and found the perfect pain relief! The staff is super friendly and caring. Meagan and Cindy are the best of the staff!! Thanks guys!!!!
