best cardiology I have ever had I am 66 and have had 3 Two in Greenville, SC and Aman
in Cumming, GA |
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.

Dr. Kakkar is just a good man.
in Woodstock, GA |
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.
in Dahlonega, GA |
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.
