Communication is a huge problem. Repeatedly request all info 2 b left on voicemail. Rarely happens. MA's don't talk to each other - have to start all over with *every* contact bc prior MA didn't document. Prefer email; ofc doesn't share info rec'd via email, or that I answered VM w/email. [...] Really appalling. Advised Dr. Kakodkar, but in my experience physicians are not involved in administrivia - or shouldn't be in a properly run office.

a very efficient system with members of staff who seem to work together optimally. Dr Kakokdar is the best Dr that I have seen - she listens and explains and has shown concern and care far beyond what I have experienced on three other continents (Europe, Asia and Africa).

Dr. K is great! I love coming in to see her. My only constructive feedback is that my medication list has not been updated the last couple time I have come in to see the provider. One of the supplements I'm taking has not been added. I also had to send a message asking for a resolved problem to be removed from my problem list.

I appreciate that Dr K is into preventive care and gives options and information instead of pushing pills. However pills are given as an option, always, too.

I must have misunderstood about the referral. I phoned the referred doctor's office. I'm supposed to wait for a call. Either this wasn't explained well, or I misunderstood. Not a big deal.

only issue is it took a bit for office staff to help me.

the phone calls are ridiculously long. You either wait to a long time or they answer the phone and immediately put you on hold. I'll wait on hold 8-15 minutes usually. I'd like to make appointments in line if possible. I get the feeling they answer the phone then put you on hold to make their wait times look better when it really isn't.

I feel like when I first started seeing this provider I wasn't listened to very well or taken very seriously. I have a life long condition and I know my body. I wish they would have listened and acted on this all sooner as well as prescribed me the proper medications.

My provider is a good listener and explains any issues or answers questions in a very clear, precise way. She is able to provide a genuine and professional sense of caring and knowledge. She helped to ease my mind on specific health issues and discussed in depth, ways on how to manage a healthy life. She is a provider I would hands down recommend to anyone that wants a quality, kind and knowledgeable doctor.
