What patients say about Pradip Thakker

I had spent a whole day to actually find a doctor who would see my 5 month old baby which I found really distressing and upsetting to say the least. I don't know what I would have done without Dr Thakker and his secretary. They went out of their way to help us and for that we are truly grateful. Dr Thakker is the most outstanding doctor; he is amazing with babies and really put my mind at rest. He went through all of my son's symptoms thoroughly, taking a thorough background of all his health issues from birth to get a clear understanding of what was happening. He is the first doctor in 7-8 weeks to actually diagnose eczema and advise some treatment for that and also advise what could be causing it. He put my mind at rest and took away a lot of stress and pressure form me as a mother of two young children. I thank Dr Thakker from the bottom of my heart.
