Your trust is our top concern.

We strive to keep the reviews trustworthy, honest & fair.

We monitor all reviews to ensure they comply with our guidelines and don’t include personal information, profanity, libel, defamation, harassment, obscenity or fraud.

My son, 13 years at the time, was under Dr. Kamalakar's care for a period of 3-4 months in the spring of 2015 for a rather serious situation. Dr. Kamalakar, in addition to being experienced and professionally skilled, was super compassionate, extremely patient in responding to all of our questionsand provided us with the right level of comfort at all times. He was approachable, took time to explain what's involved, what the line of treatment plan entailed. Thank you, Dr. Kam.
