Dr. Thakkar saved my daughter's life. I knew there was something wrong with my little girl her first week of life. All babies grunt and make noises, but she sounded like she was in pain and seemed uncomfortable. My pediatrician just made me try different formulas and sent me to Dr. Thakkar after a month. He diagnosed her with a milk protein allergy and found the right formula for my little girl and put us on the right path for weight gain and growth since she was severely underweight. He sent us to a great nutritionist and was so encouraging throughout the way. We saw him for 2.5 years at both Sugar Land and Katy locations and the experience with him and his staff was wonderful. We highly recommend Dr. Thakkar!

Dr. Thakker is awesome! After watching my grandson suffer with chronic constipation - and family doctors who offered no tangible help other than to "eat more fiber," we finally insisted on a referral to a specialist and got referred to Dr. Thakker. His interactions with my grandson (who was 3 at the time) were kind and gentle, allowing my grandson (who had been traumatized by more aggressive approaches from other doctors), allowed my grandson to feel really comfortable with Dr. Thakker before any exam was initiated. Dr. Thakker's suggestions were helpful, and more importantly, his treatment protocols worked!!! My grandson went from being miserable and suffering to a happy boy in a few days! The staff was great, too. If you need a specialist for your child, I cannot recommend Dr. Thakker enough! I only wish he saw adults, too!

I am very impressed with Dr. Thakkar! I took my 16 year old son to Dr. Thakkar because of possible GERD issues. Dr. Thakkar took the time to make my son feel comfortable and answered all the questions that had been worrying him. We ultimately had to schedule an Endoscopy. On the date of his procedure, Dr. Thakkar again made sure to answer all of questions and put us at ease for the procedure. I am grateful for Dr. Thakkar and his continued care. I cannot imagine taking my son anywhere else!!

We ended up going to our appointment two days early because the scheduler told us the wrong day. However, Dr. Thakkar agreed to see us and we did not have to wait long. Office staff very polite and helpful. The doctor listened to all of our concerns, gave dietary advice and medication and we'll be following up with him in a month. He made my daughter feel very comfortable and eased both of our concerns.
