What People Say About Dr. Davinder Kakar, MD
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful

Ten minutes for a diagnosis. I've been diagnosed by two of the best in the U.S. Karkar falls short of a physician who cares about his diagnosis or the patient. The medications he ordered are contraindicated w/ ACE inhibitors. The mixture would've been catastrophic. With a bachelors in nursing, pharmacology has been beneficial in protecting the well being of myself & others. There are too many caring, better physicians to risk seeing Karkar! If you want drugs, Lithium, Seroquel etc. he's a 5*

This July I will have been seeing Dr. Kakar for three years. We have a very good working relationship. Each month I bring him my concerns and updates about how I am feeling. He listens carefully and provides encouraging words and then decides whether any changes need to be made to my medication regiment. I am satisfied that I have found Dr. Kakar to be very professional as we are open and honest with each other.
