Dr. Makin was my doctor in Alaska, Alaska and I have since moved to California. I can't tell you how much I miss his level of care. He is a wonderful doctor and I always felt that I was in good hands. He was VERY thorough and actually cared. You can't go wrong with him.

I was mislead in the billing. Dr. Makin ordered very extensive tests, was supposed to be covered by my two Insurances, at the end they bill me a high amount with the excuse that Medicare insurance was not accepted, however when I inquired about Medicare, Dr. Makin office told me that they Lab work was covered by Medicare.

Dr. Makin is a competent physician sadly lacking in ethics. If you want to be treated as a source of revenue rather than as a patient, Dr. Makin is your guy! Seriously, the billing practices of this office are beyond the pale. Be prepared to be nickel and dimed to death and for every possible (and ultimately unnecessary) procedure and for every conceivable test to be ordered. If it pads the bill, count on Dr. Makin to do it. CHOOSE ANOTHER PROVIDER!

Dr. Makin is a very nice and thorough internist. He help diagnosed all treat my medical conditions. His staff are just as wonderful! I would recommend Dr. Makin as an internist to my family and friends.

While Dr. Makin himself was informed and courteous, the billing/insurance process is a scam. Insurance lady was not in/no one was able to let me know they were not contracted with my insurance (despite my insurance website saying they were) and they were willing to run up $1800 in charges that they then charged to my credit card without my affirmation. I believe they also overcharge for bloodwork. Do not go here unless you want to waste money.

The staff is friendly and always willing to get me in when I am having a medical crisis. I have never had to wait for an appointment. Dr Makin is knowledgeable, he refers to outside providers appropriately when needed. He is well respected in the local medical community. He listens to my concerns and explains things in terms a non medical persons can understand. He has a great sense of humor and bedside manner. I respect him for his caring personality, his knowledge, & as a colleague.
