I would not recommend any one other than Cardiologist Dr KaKKar I feel he has saved my Life. He really really cares for his patients and shows them that he cares on any occasion you see him. I am so glad I was advised to have him take over my care after a Cardiac event.

No recent visit, but Dr. Kakkar is by far the best of the best!!! Aside from being the best Heart and Vascular doctor around, he really cares about his patients. We matter to him!! My daughter is a breast cancer patient. Second round of chemo sent her to the emergency room with tachycardia. The heavy dose of chemo we knew could cause this. Oncologist would not respond as to what to do next in a two week time frame and we were a little nervous and certainly reluctant to continue with this Oncologist. Due to the effects of this type of chemo on the heart, we contacted Dr. Kakkar's office for an appointment to make sure all was good with her heart. We were in immediately and he was very familiar with this chemo and knew just what test needed to be done. All was good and no damage. We ask him for a good Oncologist. He not only gave us a referral, he called Oncologist right then and there.

I went to Dr Kakkar for checkup and some procedures recommended by my physicians. Dr Kakkar is the best doctor I have seen in my life. Meeting him itself a cure - though his genuine smile , very caring attitude and gentle pat at your shoulders with a genuine look at your eyes conveying a spirit that “ You are fine and you will be fine ‘ with God’s grace. He is extremely motivating doc no matter whatever is your concern. Do I still need to say ‘ I highly recommend him’ ? Thank you very much Dr Kakkar for your help. Best wishes. Vikky ( Chatterji)

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.

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.
