Accepting new patients

Since qualifying as a doctor in India when he was only 23-years-old he has worked extensively in the United States. His experience in a variety of settings from large hospitals to geriatric care led him to the belief that patients do better with personalized care in smaller settings. It was that philosophy that led him to his own practice where the patient always comes first. Patients are encouraged to learn about their diseases and educated on the available tools of treatment.

Learn about Dr. Thakkar

Care Philosophy

Dr. Thakkar has been offering exceptional patient-focused healthcare since joining Golden Rule Family Practice in September 2011.Years of experience working for larger organizations have taught him that patients like to see the same doctor whenever they wish. He feels that he is finally able to practice medicine the way he wants to, without all the strings attached with a larger organization. He believes that smaller practices can offer better quality care as doctors can really get to know their patients. Patients are not caught up in the wheels of a huge organization where they have to wait weeks for a follow up appointment and patients are being referred to same organization specialist rather than best available specialist in the community.
