"Awesome!!"

"Dr Rakkar treated a family member. As the caretaker, I am writing this review. I would never recommend Dr Rakkar at all. His bedside manner is cold and with each office visit he never physically examined the patient and always appeared to be in a rush and very uncaring. Treatment was unsuccessful and patient passed after 4 months of diagnosis. He was never honest or forthcoming with prognosis with treatment and was evasive when asked directly. All he appeared to care about was how fast he could get each patient in and out. More patients more money. I would not recommend this doctor. "

"My son has been seeing this man for over a year. He was diagnosed with stage 4 colon cancer. Surgery was done last September to remove part of his colon. There was not a urologist during surgery to look at his bladder. multiple times my son asked about urologist being there never was. Had surgery again to reattach colon again was asked about urologist and said yes one would be there, not. He how has bladder cancer and is back in his colon. My son said he treats you like you don't matter at all and won't answer questions about treatment. My son now has cancer in his spine and bones. This man should not be practicing at all. "

"I have been in remission for several years and I'm very grateful to his medical team. As far as Dr. Rakkar, he is arrogant, rude, and has no respect for women. A year or so after my treatment was completed I let Dr Rakkar know I had still not regained my strength. I was feeling fatigued and very weak. His reply was " Your Cancer is gone. Get over it and get on with your life." That was it. No tests no nothing. Some months later I found out I had Chronic Kidney Disease stage 3b. When I informed Dr Rakkar he said "Oh that's nothing." CKD is not nothing! Especially when it could have been caused by the chemo that he prescribed to me. After pulling up my records I realized he had months of blood tests that shows my low Kidney results and never bothered to say anything helpful. "

"Dr. Rakkar does NOT care about people/his patients. He doesn’t explain anything, has no time to talk to his patients. It’s disgusting that this man is in a position that deals with terminally ill patients. He is supposed to help save lives but he can’t even be bothered to communicate with his patients. He can’t explain anything or offer any kind of information to help his patients make informed decisions. If you want a fighting chance with cancer please go somewhere else! "
