Dr dakak is an exceptional doctor who takes the time to listen to any problems you might be having with your child he has never rushed me trying to get to the next patient and has always made me and my child feel comfortable when I leave his office I feel very confident that what he has said about my daughter every time after seeing her is correct and It always has been my daughter is now six years old she has been seeing Dr dakak now for about three years prior to this she had one pediatrician and I had nothing but problems every time I went to her office she would not listen to what I had to say and was wrong about almost every diagnosis she had given to me about my child all I can say is Dr dakak has been great and I would recommend him to anyone needing a doctor for there child if your looking please give him a try you will be happy you did

Waited out front for an hour with our new born that discharged from NICU 3 days prior.. finished the 4 pages of questions, was seen by MA for height and weight (No VS).After another hour of waiting in the room (expecting Dr Dakak) But was told he was not in the office yet. The staff MaryLou came into the room with 2 other staff (no hand washing or sanitizer gel). MaryLou stated “sorry we're late I’m the only one here, I didn’t have time to review your case”. Unprofessional. Filed grievance..

I bring my niece and nephews here all the time. The receptionists are always accommodating. The people who work up my niece and nephews are always nice. And Dr. Dakak has very good manners and he is a very good and patient doctor. Overall, the wait time is worth it. I don't understand people who complain about the wait time. It's like that everywhere else. But with Dr. Dakak, you can expect exceptional patient care.

My family loves going to Kern Pediatrics. Yes there may be a bit of a wait sometimes but its worth it for quality care. Any having Medi-Cal you have two choices: either go to a clinic and wait months for an appointment plus double the wait time or come to a private office such as Dr Dakaks and appreciate all the services since they are after all at no cost to me since we do receive Medi-Cal. Great Place!!!!!!!!!!!!

This place is the worst in regards to scheduling appointments, we have been wanting for over an hour and this only an appointment for a shot that they didn't have at the time of his physical. You would thing that a shot with an MA would be much faster than the first appointment (First time we came we were here over 3 hours!)

Dr. Dakak is very kind, and great with kids. I feel like he listens to me and respects me as a mom, and understands I'm nervous about my sick baby. The only reason I gave 4 stars instead of 5 is that if you're going to. All in and make an appointment you have to set aside at least 30 minutes of your day, if not more. You wait for someone to pick up for about 20 minutes... and then when they do they put you on hold AGAIN for a good 10 minutes just to schedule your appointment. very frustrating.

I have been trying to call all morning to see if my son's insurance is still active,I was hung up on the first time after a 30minute wait. The second time,the girl told me to call back or come inside. I told her that I needed to know before a scheduled appointment that I have in 2 hours,that was the reason for my call to see if I needed to reschedule my appointment. She outright "huffed" and told me to wait, put me on hold and hung up. Same thing every time,great doctor but terrible,rude staff!

I really like Dr Dakak. He is very caring. Is very busy nowadays. Although sometimes I see the PA she is equally as caring. Only downside is the wait! Feels like a clinic setting now at his office, he's getting more and more popular. I will stay here. The wait is worth it right now.
