Dr. Teferi Y. Mitiku is among the finest doctors in the world. Need proof? He graduated from UCLA's science program (molecular cell and developmental biology, ranked 6th in the country), with highest honors (meaning finishing in the top 10% of his class). He then obtained his medical degree from UCLA (also ranked 6th in the country), and then did his residency at Stanford and further training at Yale, while also being a professor of medical at UC Irvine. Despite his superior intelligence, he is also a compassionate and caring individual. He is humble, and very passionate about saving lives and improving your quality of life. I am forever grateful for his work, and that I chose this incredible doctor. Your search ends with Dr. Teferi Mitiku.

I have had an amazing experience with Dr. Mitiku. I was rushed to the hospital and ended up having two surgeries with him and have been diagnosed with Torsades De Pointes. He has been amazing. He is a wonderful doctor and has amazing bedside manner. I have felt comfortable, safe, and taken care of throughout the entire process. Any questions I had he answers and I have never felt rushed. He listens to everything and explains in detail anything that you may want to know about.
