My son (6 years old) was tested positive for celiac disease in a blood test by Texas Children's Hospital Pediatricians, but to complete the diagnosis we needed to do a biopsy. The Texas Children's GI department was booked for several months out and in the meantime, he would have to keep eating gluten (being in pain) in order to get the correct diagnosis. I came across Dr. Thakkar on accident by looking through my insurance's website. He is so amazing. He got us in quickly and he is just so amazingly patient and explained all the questions we had. When we went in for the biopsy Dr. Thakkar and his nurses/assistants made sure that my son, who was extremely freaked out, didn't see any needles and that his favorite stuffed animal also "had" a biopsy. He genuinely cares about his patients. He also involves my little guy when we go in to get his blood drawn instead of just directing the questions at me. I can't even begin to explain how grateful I am to have found him because he has made this whole experience so much less painful than it would have been.

I'm not sure if it is just my Google Maps GPS or everyone's, but if you choose to receive directions from the business listing it takes you to the wrong location. The address listed is correct however. If trying to navigate to this doctor office type in the address and verify it is taking you to the correct location. I have requested an edit, but it's hard to do when all the information displayed is correct and the navigation is wrong.
