Apollo Beach |
Never have I had a doctor take the time to explain exactly what the treatment plan was . Dr. Mukalel is a cut way above the rest. I have already recommended him to numerous friends.
in Apollo Beach, FL |
We found Dr. Mukalel very empathetic, understanding and knowledgeable dealing with the lower back injury I had. When I first met him on a referral from Dr. Robaina I was suffering at a 25 on a scale of 1-10. He was systematic and methodical in resolving my situation. With the exercises he gave me to complete after the completing the treatments I'm at the point of eliminating my limp. I would highly recommend the Doc to anyone!!!!!!

Dr. Mukalel was very knowledgeable and personable. He was thorough and took the time to explain my options and the procedures he recommends. I walked in his office with pain in my hip and walked out pain free. Thank you Dr. Muke!
in Riverview, FL |
My experience with Dr. Mukalel was outstanding. My PCP called him, I was seen within hours. He was able to isolate the cause of my pain right in his office. He then called my PCP personally to share his findings and to ensure that the next proper steps were taken. Dr. Mukalel asked questions and really listened to what I was saying. He demonstrates compassion, empathy and adds a little humor to keep things light. Dr.Mukalel then talked to me about my options I have in pain management.
in Ruskin, FL |
I saw Dr. Mukalel for pain in back/legs. I had this pain for years. He worked very hard to understand exactly what I was telling him. Been to many doctors & tried many things, many pills. He spent the time and was able to find the right spots that hurt. He did a test procedure to see if burning the nerves would help. The next few days, I was able to lay down & take a nap without pain nor pills for the first time in years. I can smile because pain is better. Thank God for him.
