  • Internal Medicine

    An internist is a physician who focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of conditions that affect the adult population—both acute and chronic.
    These doctors are often who adults see as their primary physicians because they treat a broad range of illnesses that do not require surgical or specialist interventions. They also work to help a patient maintain optimal health in order to prevent the onset of disease.
    In addition to treating the common cold and flu, internists also treat chronic diseases like diabetes and heart disease.

Staff is a problem

I have been going to Dr Mekai-Vekima for many years. Her staff has gotten terrible. Last year they lost my papers I needed filled out for work. This year they might not be able to get them filled out in time because Hope is 2 weeks late on her faxes!!

Two Stars

Expect to wait a minimum of 60 minutes for your appointment because she tries to squeeze too many people into each day. Then you're lucky if you get more than 5 minutes of her time. One or two of the administrative assistants are the backbone of this practice, the nurse practitioner is fantastic, and Dr. Mekai-Vekima has a decent bedside manner, but overall I would avoid going here. They're never on time and they require monthly visits for prescription refills (that by law could be written for 3 months and filed in the pharmacy). I have not been impressed and am actively searching for a new provider.
