The worst "professional" experience I have ever encountered. He was belittling the patient, and made her aniexty through the roof. Would never recommend him to anyone.

I came in from out of town and had an unexpected problem. I called Dr. Thakker’s office and right from there I knew I picked the right place. The staff was so accommodating and Dr. Thakker was able to squeeze me in that day. I was a bit apprehensive going in but as soon as I walked in, Dr. Thakker made me feel at ease right away. He is very personable and professional and ensured I had a full understanding of the emergency procedure that was going to take place and answered all my questions. T

We were referred to Dr. Thakker by our dentist for an issue my son has dealt with for 6 years. Dr. Thakker failed to listen to what has worked in the past via treatment from pediatricians, etc, at as those methods of treatment didn't fit into his prognosis of the issue. He was obstinate, responding to each of our explanations of our son's pain with the same statement, over and over. I wouldn't recommend him to anyone. It was a waste of time, and discouraging as we try to find treatment.
