About Me

Hi! My name is Dr. Michael Christakos. I also go by “Dr. Mike.” Welcome to my Kaiser Permanente Web page. It is my pleasure to help our members maximize their functional ability!


I am a San Diego native. After many years spent outside of California to complete my medical training, I am thrilled to be back home to practice medicine and serve the members of our beautiful community.

About my practice

I foster a collaborative approach with members to create the best treatment plan possible. Education about each diagnosis empowers members to make informed and appropriate decisions. As a physical medicine and rehabilitation doctor (also known as a physiatrist) I treat a variety of musculoskeletal conditions to help alleviate pain when possible and optimize functional ability. It is important that members understand and have input with their health care decisions. Education about each diagnosis helps empower members to take their health into their own hands!

How I thrive

I live well by enjoying the beautiful San Diego weather and landscape!
