Visited Dr. Thakkar twice to evaluate a Vestibular Schwannoma (tumor). I would describe his approach as lazy and overly self-confident. He spent little time getting my clinical history or explaining the results of my tests. He left me to figure out which questions to ask. I felt like I was pulling teeth to understand my options as well as what to expect in the future. If you need someone to address a sinus infection, he might be great. For anything more serious, go elsewhere.

Awesome doctor ! After being seated for literally 2 minutes my name was called in which the doctor followed me in just a few mins later. Super courteous and actually took the time to break things down in lamens terms so I understood what was going on !

Dr. Thakkar is great! I was suffering from continual nasal infections and extremely congested sinuses. Dr. Thakkar diagnosed that I had a severe case of polyps and a slight deviated septum. The entire process from the diagnosis, pre-op, the actual surgery and post-op was very efficient and trouble free. My post-op visits where on time (like almost no waiting) and Dr. Thakkar patiently and professionally explained my recovery progress. I can breathe so freely now and I no longer have recurring

Recently referred to Dr. Thakkar by my Primary Care Physician. Was very impressed with the professionalism of the staff and Dr. Thakkar. Fortunately I was seeing him for a minor problem, yet one I had been dealing with for years. Dr. Thakkar diagnosed the issue and with a prescription of drops and an ointment, I was cured!

A couple years ago, Dr. Thakkar did my septoplasty (deviated septum). He exuded confidence and when I told him I was nervous about having it done, he calmly and kindly explained how easy the procedure would be and he answered all my questions. Today he did a very minor surgery to remove a growth in my mouth. He gave me 3 options for dealing with my situation. I chose to have him take the growth out then and he easily did it.

When my mother and I stumbled upon Dr Kunal Thakkar located in Jacksonville Beach, we automatically realised he was the most knowledgeable, accurate, precise, professional, and highly experienced doctor to choose for the job to be done. He welcomed us with great manners, courtesy, and respect. He discovered my problem right away and knew what the right treatment would be in this case. We recommend Dr Thakkar to anyone who is in search for an Ear, Nose, or Throat doctor.

I moved to Jacksonville 2 years ago and was fortunate enough to have been referred to Dr Thakkar. He is excellent. The entire staff if wonderful in this office. Ease of scheduling all the way through following up with me after sinus surgery. I absolutely would recommend Dr Thakker.

I went to my primary care doctor and a nurse there perforated my ear drum. Woke up the next morning with blood all on my pillow. I went to the ER. I was told to see a ENT. Dr Thakkar seen me first thing Monday morning. He repaired my ear with a patch. Went back two weeks later and he had to repair it some more. He did an excellent job. Saved me from needing surgery. Office staff was great. Office very clean. Doctor was excellent.

I consulted Dr. Thakkar regarding a severe sinus infection from oral surgery--the infection had lasted over two months. Dr. Thakkar recommended “Balloon Sinuplasty”--this procedure was done in his office, required only a half hour, and was essentially painless. Within two days of the procedure, I was much improved, and at the end of 10 days of antibiotics was back to normal. Dr. Thakkar is an excellent physician, as well as a good listener and communicator. I recommend him without reservation.

Dr. Thakkar is an outstanding physician. He is patient and makes you feel comfortable. He explains what is going on and always asks if there are any questions or concerns. I was initially seeing him for AN and I was going through another problem with my allergies. He took a look and he found that I had a deviated septum. He told me about the surgery and said it may help with my constant sinus problems. The surgery went well. I have never breathed so well in my life.

I found him little bit rude and ignorant. He dint listen about my problem and prescribed me heavy dose of medicine which is addictive. He should have found the solution to cure the problem and not just prescribe me something that would temporarily help the pain go away and get me addicted to it. Asked one of my friends later about him and she said he dint diagnose the problem right and sent her home without any course of action. He was just in a rush of getting us out of there.

Mom was dreading her initial appointment with Dr. Thakkar because she had a bad, painful experience elsewhere. She was simply amazed at the tender care he took with her condition and he managed to correct her ear problem without any pain. She was in and out of his office in no time!

Dr. Thakkar's staff is very friendly, courteous and professional, they make you feel welcome. They are also easy on the eyes! Dr. Thakkar reminds me of the doctors of yesteryears, great bedside manners, makes you feel like you're his only patient. During my first visit, I casually mentioned my severe sleep apnea. We discussed my options and today, I don't wear my CPAP - what a life changer. I've already recommended him to my family and friends.
Very attentive to all of my questions. As he was walking me back to the front I remembered a question to ask. He was nice enough to take me back to the exam room and answer my question with the help of the visual aids on the wall. It really showed he cared about my concerns, as well as my privacy.
Very professional and thorough. He made my 10 year old son feel comfortable and he explained everything that was going. We did not feel rushed through the whole process.
