Dr. Sarkar treatment was special due to his ability to listen to every word I said as he was gently checking my movements and medical issues. His level of concern and explaining various solutions helped make my doctor visit a pleasant experience.

I have been undiagnosed for 2yrs and 7 months. I have been to doctors from Louisiana to Houston with nothing but a lot of medical bills. After meeting Dr. Sarkar I was finally diagnosed as having had a stroke witch was cause by a dissection of my left cerebral artery due to a heavy neck workout at the gym. All these years no doctor was able to find it. He is the most amazing doctor I have every seen. His office staff as well as his nurse are amazing. So blessed to finally have a doctor like him.
