He is the best! He listened to me the first time I came in (when another Dr hadn’t) and started testing from the bottom up! Luckily the first round of tests found what was wrong with me and he had started the plan of treatment! He takes time to listen and reassure a scared patient!

I found out on Christmas Eve day that I have pancreatic cancer, Dr. Kakadia is the doctor who was assigned to me. I liked him from the moment I met him. Our first meeting was brief but in those few minutes he made me feel safe. I was shocked when he gave me his card and told me to call or message anytime even if I only needed to talk. We're in this thing for 7 months now. His attitude has never wavered, he listens to me and addresses my concerns. Everytime I've texted him with a question or requested refills, he answers in a timely manner.
I have a long road ahead of me and I'm so grateful and feel very fortunate to have this man taking that road with me. I highly recommend him. If given a choice choose Dr. Kakadia!

Dr. K is amazing. Compassionate, caring and understanding. Very smart. Knows what he is doing. My case has been tricky. But he does give up. He also listen to what I had to say.

Dr. Kakadia is an excellent Dr. I can go to him with a question about anything that is bothering me. He has a good answer, you may not like it but he is very honest and forthwith his answer. I really like the people at the Benton facility, they are very capable and friendly. Thank you for helping me through a very tough time in my family's life.
