Doctor Darshana Kadakia is a superb doctor devoted to the patients she sees. She has been my doctor for 16 years and I trust her with my life which is quite a significant statement. As you walk into the lobby , you are able to view her educational accolades and background. You are able to view her areas of specialty and certifications. It is very impressive. She takes a personal interest in each one of her patients as she assesses and inquires as to the needs of her patients. She provides a thorough medical checkup and documents the results while making statements of recommendations for prevention and treatment. She has excellent follow through. Doctor Kadakia also mentors her staff members providing a further education for them. I am grateful to know she is an honored staff member of my medical specialists.

I made an appointment for a well visit and the doctor tried charging me a hundred extra dollars for urgent care. The front office staff is clueless and the doctor is now lying about this situation on another review forum. My advice is to stay clear of this office.

I was referred to Dr. Kadakia during severe dyspnea. I was seen immediately and received immediate appropriate treatment, resulting in less labored breathing. Take-home meds were prescribed. By following her treatment instructions, I saw marked improvement by the next day. Dr. Kadakia and her staff are well-skilled professionals who provide excellent care.
