We had a hard time getting pregnant. Dr. Kakani referred me to get hsg testing as soon as my insurance would cover it and after we had tried for a year. We conceive d the next month. She doesn't give fast solutions to infertility but she goes by the book and it works. She's always to the point so you don't have to guess what she is trying g to say. I absolutely would recommend her to anyone looking for an obgyn in Huntsville. Josly n, her nurse, has been great too. She always returns calls fast

i went to see her for years. I stopped going because she told me to do Volunteer Work. Ignoring my health issues. I went to a doctor in Birmingham. Pelvic pain specilaist. I had vaginal atrophy and vestibulitis, etc . The vaginia was dry and muscles were tight, vaginia was closing up. She did suggest exercises for the closing up. But again volunteer work will not heal the rest. Dr. Childs prescribed physical therapy for my vaginia, etc. He was a gem

I just started going to her and I love her. I wish I was with her a long time ago. Dr. Kakani listen to you when you trying to explain whats going on with you. Also she is not like other doctors come in the room for a second and leave back out. I will highly recommend her to be your Doctor.

She forgot to take out gauze in my vagina after delivering my baby. For two weeks, I was in severe pain and I thought it was weird because the pain should get better, but it was actually getting worse. Whenever the blood that got soaked up in the gauze came out, I felt pain that almost made me faint. She gave me extra pain in addition to the usual pain after delivering baby. Also, she didn't spend enough time talking and explaining things to me.
