About Jigarkumar Thakkar

Since qualifying as a doctor in India when he was only 23-years-old he has worked extensively in the United States. His experience in a variety of settings from large hospitals to geriatric care led him to the belief that patients do better with personalized care in smaller settings. It was that philosophy that led him to his own practice where the patient always comes first. Patients are encouraged to learn about their diseases and educated on the available tools of treatment.
