I had a horrendous experience with this 'doctor'. He demonstrates no compassion, professionalism, nor real interest in his patients. I wouldn't recommend him to anyone at anytime. He's a very good example of requiring second opinions after seeing someone like him. Just awful!!!

What a HORRIBLE Experience with this so called doctor! He never introduced himself, just asked "Why was I there?" I have a head injury from a head on collision, he NEVER checked my head just my body and concluded my headaches are from my so called depression?! Told me I didn't need to return! Please Do NOT waste your time!! He does Not listen.

Waited several hours to see this doctor and wasted my time. Told me I had absolutely nothing wrong with my arm even though I showed him that I had ulnar sublaxation issue for over a year. He said to exercise my arm. Really? As if I am not already and trying to find ways to help myself. Very insensitive to my needs and didn't care to refer me to an orthopedic doctor for my condition which I found to be very wrong. I also had requested an MRI and he turned me down for that! Why??? Now I know there

Spends less than 15 min. Does not explain anything. He does not listen or cares to engage with you. I have increased convulsions and asked to be placed on the previous medications and said something about levels. Scheduled me to comeback in 2 weeks. Would not recommend going to this Dr.

He sucks.

Dr. Thakar was very nice and took his time with me. He made me feel comfortable and made me feel as if he cared not to make me feel stressed. He continuously made sure I didn't have anything else to ask him. Good bedside manner.
Pompano Beach, FL |
Worst Doctor I've ever been too! Didn't listen to any thing I said or wrote on the paperwork. Completely went against my first neurologist diagnosis. I don't normally write bad reviews but this was bad. Stay away if you want a correct diagnosis or someone who cares.
