Verified Patient Reviews
Dr. Thakkar was very patient and kind and took her time. She asked a lot of questions and really seemed like she wanted to find answers for us. My 16-year-old daughter was rather hesitant about seeing a pediatrician, but after the appointment she was glad she did - she really liked Dr. Thakkar!
Dr. Thakkar was very professional and took the time needed to answer all my questions regarding my daughter. She was very kind and my daughter liked her very much also. I am happy to have found her as my daughter feels more comfortable with female doctors. I would definately recommend her!

As I could tell just by looking at her, she is a very passionate caring and professional physician. I looked her up online and just by looking at her pic I knew she is a wonderful person. I'm glad I was right!
Very nice atmosphere & staff. Dr Thakkar was very professional, she spoke to my son like a young adult-she made him feel at ease. Some doctors only speak to the parents as if the child cannot comprehend anything. Great office! Would highly recommend.
Love and completely trust her
Very thorough. Truly cares for childs over all well being. Highly recommend.
Dr. Thakkar is a very pleasant woman. She was professional as well as personal, she asked how my son like school and how he was performing - not health related but it made me realize she cares for a child's whole being. After the trip to the doctor my son I asked my son if he was still scared of doctors and he said no.
So glad I found this Dr. She is very informative and very easy to speak with. Recommended!!
