I recently had my first visit with Dr. Kakar. He listened carefully to my situation. He ordered tests to determine the causes of my symptoms. He is pleasant and friendly. I got the appointments fairly quickly and the wait time in the office was minimal. I look forward to getting a solution. GGH

I was a patient of Dr. Kakkars for approximately 10 years. The last visit was around three months ago and after reviewing my test results he told me there was no reason for him to see me again. A few weeks later I sought a second opinion and Dr. Hunt Anderson found major blockages in my heart. Bottom line is that Dr. Kakkars misdiagnosis could have potentially caused me to have a heart attack. His practice has grown tremendously since I become his patient and I think he has become overwhelmed.

After seeing another Cardiologist for approximately 10 years that didn't seem concerned even though I had a family history of heart disease I decided to see Dr Kakkar. I wasn't having any symptoms but Dr Kakkar found numerous blockages in three of my arteries to the heart and I had a triple bypass surgery. I am doing great now only 7 weeks after my surgery. Dr Kakkar very possibly saved my life. He is a great Cardiologist and a true Christian. He has a great bedside manner and doesn't rush.

Dr. Kakkar is an amazing doctor. He is kind and takes as much time as you need to explain things. He is hands down the best Dr. my family and I have ever known. Wish we could have more doctors like doctor Kakkar in other fields of medicine. If you need a good cardiologist Dr. Kakkar is your man.

After 20 years with no solution for a complex arrythmia condiiton, I began seeing Dr. Kakkar. He told me I like a mystery and assured me he puzzles away even when I'm not in the office. And he did. Within weeks, my uncontrollable arrythmia was under control and has been for 3 years now. He has a warm, soothing manner, and shares great nutritional advice that has improved my overall health. He gave me my life back! The office is easy to find and well worth the (for me, 25 mile) drive.

Excellent, his examination was thorough, he discussed what he was doing as we went through the exam process ... very easy to talk, excellent communication skills. Good feedback on areas for improvement and a stress test to confirm his initial observations, I would recommend him to family and friends.
