My husband said "if you´re perfect you´re dead, because there is no room for further development." Dr. Mahallati is rather alive, but above & beyond any expectations. Endless "thanks" to him.
November 2016
Dr. Mahalatti is above any rating listed here. He is by far the most personable physician I have ever been to. You never feel hurried, he answers all questions, explains why he recommends tx. you are receiving and he is very personable. Although he is a kidney specialist he inquires about your entire physical health.

Dr. Mahallati has been helping with my kidney transplant maintenance for 2.5 years so far and got me through an episode of rejection in late 2015. I choose my healthcare insurance based on whether he is in the provider´s network.
