      Friendly and courteous and very professional. Very attentive and unhurried. Explains conditions and procedures very well.
      in Bakersfield, CA |
      Recently moved to Bakersfield and my chiropractor recommended Dr Kothary. I couldn't be happier. I have some serious health issues and he's great at listening to and answering my questions in a way I can understand. He's also helping me to find the best specialists in the area for my various medical concerns. The Doctor I had for 20 years was always prescribing another medication for whatever problem arose. extremely compassionate and kind.

      I have challenges with front desk staff and cannot figure out why, but Dr. Kothary is easily the most knowledgeable and patient physician I have ever visited. My entire family loves him.

      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.
