Dr. Kailath was wonderful with my mother, who was his patient. He was the only doctor who diagnosed her correctly with Multiple Myeloma. He was in front with her and gave a treatment plan available. Asking her the whole time what path she wanted to take. He was very respectful.

Patricia Owens in Carmichael, CA – May 26, 2018
I have the highest regard for Dr. Kailath. He's knowledgeable, professional, caring and he has the most wonderful sense of humor. I first met him when I was in the ICU at Mercy San Juan hospital and within 10 minutes, he won me over. My two sons were there and they put the poor man through the wringer, asking question after question. Dr. Kailath patiently answered all their questions and even my two over-protective sons were impressed with his knowledge and patience..

I would recommend Dr. Kailath to everyone who wants someone who cares and treats his patients like human beings and explains everything so you have a better understanding of your treatment. After the first diagnosis I felt depressed but he made me feel confident that I will beat this disease. Dr. Kailath You're the Best!!!

Thomas Tagawa in Sacramento, CA – Aug 15, 2017
Dr. Kailath is sensitive, kind, and hopeful. He is honest. He tells the truth compassionately. I chose him because I was a patient at San Juan Mercy hospital after Stage IV ovarian cancer surgery. He saw me every day, often more than once, and treated me like a person rather than a number on a case list. Dr. Kailath is innovative and aware of new treatment options. He has a wonderful sense of humor, and his care is encompassing of who I am and what my life is about.
