What People Say About Dr. Nirav Thakkar, MD

Wonderful experience. When I first met him he explained in detail everything that was going on. He explained all the parts of the neck and how he would work around them (ex. muscles, nerves). When it came time for surgery he again explained what he would be doing. After surgery also made me feel at ease. Dr. Thakkar has a very good "bed side" manner.

Awesome surgeon! His calm demeanor was a relief to me, as I was very nervous and scared about the surgery. He put my fears to rest and the experience was a breeze. He has convenient office hours in multiple locations which was nice, as well. Highly recommend Dr. Thakkar!

Dr. Thakkar was amazing, he removed my left thyroid a week ago, the surgery went well. Very impressed by his work, he was very knowledgeable, he called me the following day after my surgery to check on me, not to many Drs do that. I'm a nurse so that definitely means a lot to me. Overall great experience, will definitely recommend him, thanks Dr. Thakkar.

My experience with Dr. Thakkar was outstanding. He is polite with a very non-rushed bedside manner. He explains things in terms the everyday layperson can understand. Would highly recommend to anyone in need of medical evaluation and treatment in his areas of expertise. His staff is great too :)

Dr. Thallus has been amazing. An actual life saver for us. He has made our lives easier with how fast our daughter was able to get ear tubes.
