Very condescending and rude. His diagnosis for my child's GI problem is "bad parenting". Absolutely lacks bedside manners.

Dr.Thakkar is amazing. My son has many GI issues. After many failed pedi GI doctors we found him. He listens to me & together we have a plan for my son. His nurse returns calls quickly and helps me tons battling insurance companies. What a breath of fresh air. HIGHLY recommend Dr.Thakkar.

He's a really nice doctor. I recently got an endoscopy done by him personally. I love the fact that he is the one there with me all the time. He is very friendly and attentive.
