I went to see Dr. Makkar yesterday, it was my first visit with Dr. Makkar. He's very personable and most importantly knowledgeable. For the first time in two months I have some relief. He noticed things my primary physician never asked about or checked. I can't say enough about how impressed I am with him. I have been so sick for two months, so to feel results this early is really such a blessing. Genius.
