Patient Comments (2)
in Mahwah, NJ |
I cannot say enough good things about Dr Kakkar. I found him to be very responsive, informative and reassuring in suggesting a clear treatment plan. He took an inordinate amount of time explaining to me and my husband what my problem might be, suggested a course of action to get the necessary tests to thoroughly evaluate and returned with a treatment plan. He communicates through email and he responds in a quick and concise timeframe. I would highly recommend him.
This is the worst doctor with horrible bedside manners. His knowledge is treating headaches and has no factual knowledge outside of this field. He’s a yes man and allows hospital administration to dictate your care. He will not fight for you when more appropriate care is needed in a hospital setting. Office exams are a joke as his neuro exams are worst then a first-year medical student. Acts like a child if you disagree with him and flips out. Stay away from this doctor.
