      Dr Kakkar is very quiet, confident and thorough. I trusted him after my first visit and felt that I could trust his diagnosis of my condition. He spent as much time with me as was necessary allowing me to ask what ever questions I had. Since my first appointment I have had several followup appointments to adjust medication. He performed the necessary exam with the same manner as my first visit. His experience made me feel very comfortable. Staff was friendly and courteous.

      I have been a patient of Dr. Kakkar for about 8 years. He has been treating me for essential head tremor with botox injections to back of neck. I receive injections every three months. He and his staff have always treated me with courtesy and in a professional manner. Any questions I have ever had were answered thoughtfully. I would personally recommend Dr. Kakkar to anyone in need of a qualified and honest neurologist.

      I have been seeing this doctor since early 2001. He is a great doctor. He has always been attentive to my medical needs. Even during my divorce he saw me as a private pay patient. He explained to me what the cost would be and I just brought the money with me to the appointment, no problem. The staff are great. There always very friendly and considerate. This doctor has even called me at home on the weekend to see how I was feeling after a hospital ER visit. And I can ask questions if I want !

      I have been a patient of Dr. Kakkar's for more than 10 years. He has always been very thoughtful, concerned about my seizure condition and LISTENS to me. I never feel rushed through an office visit, Dr. Kakkar gives me his full attention. I would recommend Dr. Kakkar 100% And Brenda who schedules appointments has been with Dr. Kakkar as long as I've been a patient, 10 years or more, she's professional with a sense of humor, making it a pleasure to work with Dr. Kakkar and his team.

      The most obnoxious doctor I have ever visited in my life. He is rude, dismissive and when I told him I did not have insurance he said he cannot help me. I told him that was terrible. He finally did refer me for testing but flat out refused to even review the results with me over the phone. He is highly unethical and violated his Hippocratic oath by doing this. He should not be allowed to practice and wouldn't, be if Boulder Medical Center wasn't completely desperate for Neurologists.
      Terrible bedside manner. Doesn't listen or allow questions. Seems to be annoyed and even rolled his eyes when I did ask a question. Office staff is rude. Accused me of lying when I called and told them that my insurance company had not received their fax, yet they couldn't give me the number they claimed they faxed it too. No concern for the patients well being!

      Does not allow one to ask questions or discuss symptoms. Rushes patients out of the room after six minutes or leaves the room himself. Rude, completely unconcerned. An entire exam consisted of spelling a five letter word backward, remembering 3 words for 30 seconds and touching finger to nose. That's it for a dementing neurological condition which is destroying a life. Always late.

      Why Does Experience Matter?

      Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.
