What our patients have to say about us:

Dr. Mikhael
You make such a difference in my life. Especially during the bad times I look forward to startin a new year with Hope.

There are no words to explain our gratitude for your dedicated long hours and healing hands. We have been blessed to come to you. Last year was the continuation of a four year nightmare; last month was the awakening from that state. To go from “ I cant remember what it feels like to have a good day” to having fruitful days; this is where there are no words. Only tears of joy.
Cindy and Tom

Hi Guys
I just wanted to say thank you for helping me out while I was at the hospital. As soon as the nurses started giving me problems, I told them to call Dr. Mikhael and he will straighten everything out! Pam thank you so much for rescuing me. Friday morning I really thought I was gonna go crazy with that crazy patient spraying her perfume see you guys soon.

Dear Dr. Barreto and Staff,

My wife passed away on Saturday, Jan 30, 2016 at Hoag Hospital in Newport Beach. Her name may appear as _____________ in your records because that is how she was identified for Medicare Purposes. As a 14-year lung transplant patient, her body was unable to recover from the trauma of abdominal surgery necessitated by a sudden and completely unexpected bowel obstruction on 1/19/16.

My family and I want to express our sincere appreciation and gratitude for the health care you provided for her over the long struggle she experienced with pulmonary difficulties. We wish the best of health and well-being to all of you.


To Dr. Barreto

Dear Dr. Mikhael
My mother, Bonnie, who has been seeing you for the past 5 or 6 years, has been advised by Healthcare Partners Medical Group that you are no longer a contract provider for the Long Beach area. She cannot, therefore, continue to see you under her present insurance coverage. She is very sad to receive this information, as am I. From our first visit with you to this very day, you have been the most caring and professional of any of the healthcare providers she has seen. She has received excellent care from you and always looked forward to seeing you because of the dignified, friendly and caring way that you have treated her these past several years. Your prompt attention to her needs has been greatly appreciated. You have really become one of the family and we will miss you greatly.
Over the past 15 years, I have seen the level of caring among healthcare providers deteriorate and it gives me great hope for the future when i meet someone of your character. There is no doubt that the medical profession and the country in general, needs more men like you! Take care of yourself and god bless you.
Most Sincerely,
Richard and Bonnie

Dear Dr. Mikhael,

Dear Dr. Mikhael,
I wanted to let you know I had my back surgery Dec 13th with Dr. Ceverha. I am doing great. This is to thank you for all of your loving care that you gave in the past few years. I only wish I had done it sooner to advoid all the shots I had to get. Your care is never forgotten and if I ever have to go through this again, I will only want you to be my doctor. Your experience shines.
B. Perry

Dr. Mikhael,
I just wanted to send you a note expressing my thanks for all your help. The shot I received on Friday has worked wonderfully for me. By Sunday I was feeling great. I have been able to eat without any pain! Best of all I have no longer been getting ill after eating. So, again, Thank you.

Dear Dr. Mikhael,
I’m so glad that my father (Manny) encouraged me to see you for my back pain. I wanted to let you know how much better I feel. Thank you so much for taking me as a patient.

Dr. Mikhael & Dr. Baretto,
Our mother passed away peacefully at her home on Jan 16. As a patient of yours, she was ever so grateful for the care she received from you. Without the pain control, she would never have been able to endure her treatments and enjoy a lovely holiday season.
Sue, Rusa, Dave and families.

Dear Dr. Mikhael
Since October 2003 you have decreased my pain from a 9 to a 3-4! That is Heaven sent! I see that you truly care about me and the rest of your patients. You are a very caring king, generous, compassionate and understanding doctor. You will forever be in my thoughts because of all that you have done for me (and my family) and continue to do! I can’t thank you enough for sharing your talents with the world! You should be very proud of yourself.

Super Thanks!

Patient thank you note for website

Brenda 6-16-16

It is very seldom that you find a medical group that is kind and considerate. Your office staff has a great caring attitude.

Dear Dr. Mikhael,
I could not let any more time go by without thanking you from my heart – For the great medical are you provided through the last few years, but particularly your extreme and effective attention following my series of hospital at who in 2005-2006. In today’s medical world it is the norm for doctors to shrug and say “good luck” I was beyond fortunate that you were overseeing my pain care. I will never forget your many kindness. I am finally in the hands of good pain management md’s here in Palm Springs; without your help. Though, there would have been a gap in my care that would have been most damaging
Thank you

Dr. Mikhael,
Just a note to thank you and the girls in the office for your kindness and support. And thank you so much for honoring Dr. Ceverha’s request to give me the “family” discount. Your kindness has touched my heart. And for that I am so thankful.
I am very happy to report that my back and leg is doing much better. It must be very rewarding for you when you are able to give someone back their normal life. My son is so happy that I can do thins with him again.
Please know that your kindness and compassion will always be remembered.
You and your office and of course, Dr. Ceverha are the very best. Thank you so much for everything
