He is just a very caring Dr. who really tries and get to the bottom of why your feeling the way you do. When my mom had cancer, he never met her and he treated her like it was his mom. He just has a way with people. He treats everyone with respect, like it was one of his family members.

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.
