About Our Survey

The Patient Rating score is based on responses given during the CAHPS Patient Experience Survey. Responses are measured on a 10-point scale, with 10 being the best score. These scores are then translated to a 5-point scale in order to display results in a 5-star rating. Comments are also gathered from the same survey and displayed in their entirety with the exception of any language that may be considered slander, libel or contain private health information, which will be removed prior to publishing the comments.

he did not seem rushed at all. he listened to my concerns and provided information in a way that was neither condescending or beyond my understanding. he developed a treatment plan with my input and I felt we left the appointment with a positive action plan. he involved my son in the conversation.

Dr. Thakkar is such a wonderful pediatrician. He isn't fazed by screaming 1 year olds or 3 year olds sitting upside down on the chair patting their own butts during the visit.He is very kind, knowledgable, and very trustworthy.
