  • Experience was god but took too long to get appointment
    Dr Makani was referred by my Primary Health Care Provider - my initial impression was very positive.
    Came in the see Dr. Makani for enlarged heart concerns, he explained all the issues I might have and ordered tests to be done. He was helpful and courteous
    I was very pleased with the professionalism and kindness displayed by Dr. Makani and all the staff not only with my direct contact but also my observation of how all patients were treated with kindness. I've never had an appointment with a cardiologist so this appointment was not routine for me. I appreciated Dr Makani very much for his assurance, thoroughness, and his approachability that made me feel as though I could speak openly about my health and concerns. Additionally, the tech who administered my EKG (unfortunately did not get her name) was wonderful. I enjoyed our conversation so much that the EKG was completed before I even knew it had been started. I have the utmost confidence in Dr Makani and his staff to care for me and that is the highest of compliments especially because it relates to heart health. Thank you Dr Makani and staff for all you do!
    He attended me. I notice that he rush in his comment about my heart, x-rays. He also said my medicine was working and he stay for a few seconds in the room and left the door...

    Dr. Makani is an internationally recognized name in the field of hypertension. He has authored or co-authored more than 50 journal publications, book chapters and abstract publications in top medical journals like Journal of American College of Cardiology, British Medical Journal and European Heart Journal.

For example, he performs transradial angioplasty, which uses a patient’s wrist instead of the groin as the incision point and has a much lower rate of bleeding and faster recovery time.

    Dr. Makani is board certified in Internal Medicine, Cardiovascular Diseases, Nuclear Cardiology, and Echocardiography and is a Registered Physician in Vascular Interpretation.
