I went to Dr. Kadakia on recommendation of another physician. He diagnosed my sclerosis and found another potentially life-threatening problem which he has solved. He is thorough, professional and no nonsense. I would recommend him to anyone.

Biggest waste of time doctor I've ever had in my whole life. I basically got into a screaming fight with him because he was so rude and wouldn't let me get a word in edge wise. He's a conveyor belt doctor that just wants to get you in and out-- doesn't care about his patients AT ALL. ZERO bedside manner. I have never in my life been treated so rudely, nor have I ever had to seek a second doctor. I'm not hard to please or get along with-- HE is the problem. WORST DOCTOR EVER

Very professional, caring and educational. He cares about the whole patient, not just making a diagnosis and processing you through a rushed appointment. I have referred Dr. Kadakia to family and friends.
San Antonio, TX |
He had absolutely horrific bedside manner. My doctor had not sent Dr. Kadakia's office my blood or ultrasound results. Dr. Kadakia was in a rush was focused on my weight and seemed disgusted with it. This is the last thing I needed. I was nervous, worried, and did not feel well. I left his office in tears. A little empathy goes a long way. I will not be back. I will find a doctor who treats his or patients with the respect they deserve.
