Dr Thakkar is very personal and professional. She explains everything at just the right level, giving details but not talking either down or above patient.

It was difficult to get information from her. I asked a lot of questions and while she did answer them, it felt like she didn't think it was important to give me all the information I needed to understand my condition.For example, I had to ask her at the end what my prognosis was, and whether my situation was normal, to find that out. I think she knows a lot, I would just encourage her to say more and be more helpful.
