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.
