Do you have salute worst bedside manner I'm here and with a doctor in many years. I've seen many doctors for reasons why I don't want to give. He stares at his laptop dogs out over the rules no give-and-take you never do what he says. Or you go someplace else and I'm gone someplace else

Although some may find Dr. Thaker no nonsense which he is, he is kind, compassionate and intends to help your situation in the best possible way. If you work with him you will be highly satisfied and achieve pain relief to the maximum. The injections are comfortable and dr. Thaker is excellent in this procedure. I highly recommend him.

Dr. Thakur is a life saver!! His bedside manner is awesome, he listens to you and he does not promise you the moon, but says he will try his hardest to help you! I was at a 10 plus in the hospital and he put me on a regimen that gave me 95% relief! He really cares about his patients and will do what it takes to make you better. I am so grateful to him for helping me! He is now my new Pain Management Doctor! God bless you Dr. Thakur!!!

My family and I are very glad that we were referred to Dr. Thakur. I'm a Stage IV Lung Cancer patient with multiple mets to brain and bone. I was nervous to be referred to a pain specialist, but after meeting Dr. Thakur my mind was at ease. He is extremely friendly and very professional. He has a great heart and truly cares about his patients. He listens to not only me, but my entire family as we have sat in his office numerous times with confusing questions that go along with cancer.

Dr. Thakur is very knowledge and explains everything in detail so you are comfortable. He always makes sure questions are addressed before leaving. I have had two injections and they have decreased my pain level by at least 60% each time (with no pain meds).

Very informative with a take charge attitude,not just one to hand out pills was given a bilateral s1 joint injection on second visit.

This Dr. knows his specialty very well. I was miserable before I went to him. I have had 4 back surgery's and Dr. Thaker has helped me to cope. If your first appointment is discouraging please give him another chance. its well worth it. Take it from someone that knows...

Very condescending, charged every time for visit, even though contacted by insurance I was paid up every time I went. In my opinion he was rude to my husband, not a nice man, although he would object to my opinion of him. I am waiting for a refund of money over spent. I am going to new Dr.

I would have put 0 stars if possible. HORRIBLE doctor. Actually told me that my insurance doesn't pay him enough to care about me! Terrible waiting times, dr is arrogant and only cares about padding his pocketbook, not helping people with REAL pain. Wait was 2+ hours every single time I went there (4x). He did a procedure wrong and caused me additional pain and didn't care enough to help me through recovery. Will NEVER go back.

D Doesn't listen to you, and amuse things before he has your medical record or any test in front of him... Wrote the wrong script for me, and very condescending.. Wants you to do test, doesn't care if you can't aford it... Also long waits, and wants you to pay before you see that Doctor.. My guess is people haven't been paying there bill because his service is really bad and unprofessional..
