Columbia, SC |
Dr. Mulliken worked on my son once as an infant for a cleft lip repair and 20 years later as a young adult for a revision following jaw surgery. He continues to be wonderfully talented and an excellent resource to young residents.

Dr. Mulliken is a compassionate, skilled and brilliant surgeon who was able to remove our daughters very large strawberry hemangioma from the top of her head. We had seen numerous surgeons and specialists who were supposedly experts on this type of hemangioma. He did her surgery when she was 2 1/2 years old and now as a 23 year old woman, you would never know she has this large hemangioma on her head. Thank you Dr. Mulliken.
