Dr. Makaroun did an endarterectomy on my left carotid artery in 2004 because I had a TIA. I've been experiencing symptoms that indicate I may have had a TIA in the last 3 weeks so I'm having the blockage removed from my right artery on 3/11. I have complete trust in his expertise and would recommend him to anyone.

I was 2 hours late for my appointment. Reason is immaterial. The staff did everything to fit me in so I didn't have to come back at another time. After a short wait, they took care of the problem and my exam was completed. All the waiting that I had was my own fault. I thank them for their effort

Great experience! Dr. Makaroun explained my medical situation for almost 40 minutes. I brought in A CD with a recent CAT SCAN and he thoroughly explained my aneurysm and even brought in a model to show the stent procedure. I sought a second opinion because I was not satisfied with the patient Ed. from the first surgeon. In fact, the first surgeon (from Youngstown Ohio) told me to "look things up on the internet" if I wanted to know about stents.

I am very pleased with Dr. Makaroun and his staff. I travel 2.5 hrs to get there and this time our garman took us to the wrong place. I was 15 minutes late, something I try very hard not to do.
