Dr. Kakish was fantastic. He was sensitive to how sudden everything was and helped me process (I had what turned out to be a blood clot in my popliteal artery). He tried to address it in the least invasive way possible, although the clot eventually required a bypass. He comforted me and my parents and validated our feelings, answered questions quickly and concisely, and was available to indulge our MANY questions ("That's what I'm here for, fire away.") I am extremely thankful for his care.

He saved my life! Dr. Kakish came highly recommended. 6 months ago I had a stroke and Dr. Kakish performed surgery on a carotid artery that was 95% blocked. The surgery was complicated. Thankfully, his experience and skill have allowed me to continue to enjoy my life. Yes, I would highly recommend Dr. Kakish to family and friends!
