  Overall Patient Rating - July 2019
A much more satisfying experience in that I felt Dr Kakkar probed for any additional concerns. In my initial physical assessment the time budget seemed predetermined, whereas this experience seemed more issue-determined.
  Overall Patient Rating - June 2019
When computers became commonplace in the exam room (years ago) I was concerned about the amount of time doctors would spend viewing the computer screen vs. interacting with me, the patient. Dr. Kakkar does a good job of using the computer during my annual wellness exam. As he views my lab results and medical history he is also interacting with me and explaining what he sees, turning the screen to me and explaining things. Dr Kakkar also to ask questions and then listen carefully.
