*Dr. Mekala was friendly and was good explaining my condition and what medication might help me. I was able to understand the words she used. She probably spend 20-30 minutes with me.


One of the most thorough and caring doctors I have ever met.


very good


First time I had seen this provider. I was informed that the provider that I usually see had had surgery. I liked this provider a lot. She answered my health questions. She had also read my past medical history.


Great experience with Dr Mekala


Wait times, not listening, unable to answer questions.


No complaints at all. I've been seeing doctors at WF since I was a new bride at 21. I am now 91. My husband's doctors were at WF also. He died at 87.


Very good!


I love Doctor Mekayla!!!!! she has really set me on the right path to get my diabetes under control while being friendly about it. she has a no no nonsense attitude but she definitely cares.


*Dr. Mekala is very thorough, professional, considerate and has great communication with patients on a level that can be understood.


only good experience


Mekala is an awesome physician. I wish she could be my primary care. Physician


I have already recommended this provider to my sister.


Dr. Mekala is an excellent doctor who is very concerned about my diabetes. She is working very hard to get my diabetes back under control. I am always treated with friendliness and respect.


She is very nice and took time to listen and answer my questions.
