More about Dr. Mikulak

I was born in Scranton Pennsylvania and shortly thereafter moved to Barnstable Massachusetts where I was raised.

I was a college gymnast and suffered many orthopedic injuries which prompted me to change my major from biomedical engineering to premed. I wanted to be able to prevent and treat injuries and orthopedic problems that were so prevalent among athletes.

I feel that it is very important for my patients to feel comfortable with me so that they can express their concerns and issues. My patients are my family and I want them to know that I will do everything possible so they have a successful outcome and can return to the activities they love. The most important factor in the doctor-patient relationship is communication and I would like all my patients to feel comfortable contacting me when they are scared. If I don’t know what is bothering my patients, then I am unable to help them in their time of need.

When I am not working I enjoy golfing, surfing, hiking, cycling, and reading. I spend my free time with my family (daughter Alex and son Sam), girlfriend Pam, and friends.
