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...more

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.
