"Having been a previous competitive athlete with my own handful of set backs, I understand the struggles that a musculoskeletal injury can place on a person’s daily life. For this reason among others, I find myself able to relate to my patients. I always try to instill a positive attitude in patients from the very first visit."
When taking care of those with acute and/or chronic injuries, Dr. Makki’s practice philosophy involves interacting with each patient on a personal level in order to better understand the full scope of factors contributing to their ailment.
