The staff is most accommodating and Dr. Kakani is knowledgeable and pleasant. Always a pleasant experience for a doctor's visit.
Saw him for my sinus troubles. He tried listened to me. Recommended lot of non surgical options. I did not need sinus surgery after all.
Saw him for sinus problems. He spent time explaining me about my condition. Great Bedside manners. Highly recommend
He cured me of my chronic ear infections. I had been to another reputed ENT several times. Once I visited Dr. Kakani, he explained in detail my situation and within 2 visits worked out a plan that cured my chronic ear problesm.
I recently had my sinus surgery and the support from Dr. Kakani's staff and his unconditional assistant made everything better than I expected. He has also been the ENT for my daughter with an accurate diagnose and treatment. I highly recommend Dr. Kakani
One month after my 50th birthday during a visit to the doctor for a sore throat the Physicianâs Assistant said she wanted me to see an ear, nose and throat doctor because she didnât like the length of time my throat was sore and that I had laryngitis. She arranged the appointment from her office the very same day. I went to see Dr. Rajesh Kakani. At that time, after a very thorough examination and questions about my health and background, he explained to me that I would need a procedure whereby a scope with a camera on the end of it would be inserted in my nose, down my throat, in order to get a complete view of my vocal cord. When that was finished and he saw something appeared he arranged for me to have various tests done in the hospital the very next day. When the results were in he called to make an appointment for me to come in and discuss the findings. At that appointment, in the most professional way, caring and mindful, he informed me that he had good news and bad news to tell me; the good news was he believed I could be cured; the bad news was I had cancer of my vocal cord. It was such a shock to my system to hear those words, that I passed out. Ten days later I had my first laser surgery which confirmed and removed the cancer. In a period of nine months I underwent another two laser surgeries; one to remove the cancer in its entirety, the last to be entirely sure the cancer had not resurfaced. Due to his proactive measures, his integrity, his caring ways, and all of his encouragement I am grateful to say that I am now eleven years cancer free. I go religiously for the scope procedure to ensure my good health. His methods of procedure were way ahead of the times and each time he explained carefully all of my options and possible outcomes. I am sure another doctor would have given me an antibiotic and sent me on my way. I am forever blessed for being placed in the care of Dr. Rajesh Kakani, he saved my life.
Dr. Kakani has been taking care of me and my family for over 15 years. What strikes me most is his intelligence, professionalism and the ability to grasp complex medical situations and data very quickly. His questions, exam and advice is very precise. He will answer most questions running through your mind before you even ask. I wouldn't trust any other physician for any of my ENT needs. I would recommend him to anybody without any reservation.
The best. I had chronic sinus problems. He is very conservative. Limited surgery. I am doing well.
My 31year old daughter had suffered with chronic throat infections since childhood, and she never seemed to get any relief. Finally, a friend who had other ENT issues went to, and recommended Dr. Kakani. She was treated and finally had to come to the decision about a tonsillectomy. Being an R.N., I know how difficult this procedure is for adults. I was expecting the worse case scenario . She had the procedure and did so well that I was elated. I can only credit Dr. Kakani with her wonderful outcome. He is a Doctor in the truest sense as we all expect them to be. He is kind, understanding, and treats the patient as if they were a family member. I was so impressed with the degree of patient education and preparation that he does for pre-operative cases. I credit his expertise as a surgeon, as well as his humanity for my daughters success. She is healthy, not suffering with chronic sore throats, and is not having to take useless courses of antibiotics. She had the procedure at Mercy Medical Center where the staff was wonderful. Thank-you Dr. Kakani and God bless you!
In office facility to do hearing test, sinus endoscopy were very helpful tools to complete my diagnosis and treat my illness. Office manager, Marge, and her staff were very courteous and prompt. Waiting area and decor is spacious and very pleasant with adequate seating for everyone.
Dr. Kakani is a great doctor!! I highly recommend him for kids and adults.
Great office and staff... Very welcoming... Was pleasantly surprised that the Dr. Was very patient and thorough...this was my first visit and the wait was way too long . I had a 1:00 appointment but was not,called until almost 3 pm... The staff was very apologetic, but found it even more disturbing that the Dr walked in and out of the room multiple times before my exam was complete... A nice Dr. But appointment lasted way too long.
dr kakani does the best work on me all the time
Dr. Kakani is a very through and caring dr. All our questions were answered before we even asked, by giving us a complete write up about our problem, course of action and possible outcomes. More drs should use this form of educating their patients.
From my first visit I was extremely impressed with Dr. Kakani. His excellent bedside manner immediately put me at ease and I was impressed with his ability to evaluate exactly what was the cause of my condition and how to cure it. Dr. Kakani also was " hands on " in giving me an explanation that was easily understood as to what caused my condition and what would be the cure. Dr. Kakani has carefully monitored my condition with follow up visits. The end result is that my illness has been cured with skillful treatment. Raves to Dr. Kakani!
I am greatly happy with the procedure carried out by Dr. Kakani. He was tentative and willing to listen to what was wrong. As a result he was successfully able to correct my ailment. I would gladly recommend Dr. Kakani because I am so thoroughly please with the results of my procedure.
The experience I've personally had at Doctor Kakani's office begins from the initial phone call.. where the staff is always willing to assist you and they are very helpful indeed; followed by an office visit with such a comfortable ambience - tv, magazines & even Hershey Chocolates. And then, Dr. Kakani with his pleasant smile.. and he's very welcoming -he makes you feel as if you are a part of the family at his practice. I have been a patient of his since 2005 (had my tonsils surgically removed) and all I can say about his overall service is that.. he will exceed your expectations!.. Pre-Surgery & Post Surgery, he's there to see you get well all the way through. I have never had a major surgery prior to Dr. Kakani and I will admit, I would never have a second thought if he needed to perform another surgery (I had very minimal discomfort &/or pain). He's amazing a true professional in his Medical craft and delivers positive results... "I'm proof of it"... Thank you so much to his Staff & Dr. Kakani.
A kind compassionate human being , who happens to be a physician, and a first rate diagnostician...He is patient, warm, caring ... I would recommend Dr Kakani highly to anyone without hesitation, his office staff is considerate, efficient, and attentive to the patients needs. What I personally love most about him, is his demeanor and treatment towards children , which depicts his humor and wonderful Grace ..
Certainly one of the most humane Physicians, excellent in diagnosing, caring compassionate in person with a superb office staff, highly recommend him ..
In my opionion, he's the best there is on Long Island. He's been my Doc for over 9 years. Performed several surgeries and all successful.
Not only did he not diagnose my cancer and left it undetected, he also was very passive. He treated my situation as if it was no big deal and dismissed all of my concerns. He cut me off while I was talking consistantly. I eventually left this practice and found a doctor who was horrified by the neglect of treatment.
Dr. Kakani is knowledgable, professional, good listner and great bedside manners. He is not arrogant and short like my previous doctors. I am so happy that by listening to the doctors orders and taking heed of good vocal hygenie, I did not need to have surgery to remove a small vocal cord polyp. Unlike my previous doctor who said that I needed surgery and gave no other options. Dr. Kakani even went a step further and had me watch a Speech Therapy 20 min video in his office. The poly is gone and I have all the vocal hygenie skill set needed to apply to everyday living. Thanks Dr. Kakani. The staff were very flexible too, I had an appointment much later and came in earlier and thery were very accomodating. There is evern hershey kisses chocolates there :) Nakia and Marge were terrific, both friendly and professional. Thank you everyone, I truly appreciate my visits since I dont feel like a number but like a family member. Thanks for all your kind assistance and support!
Dr. Kakani performed a parotidectomy on me in 2004. He discussed many times with me the possible problems that could occur. He made sure I understood the surgery. He is a wonderful doctor and I have referred him to family and friends. He has helped me tremendously and I am grateful to have him as my docor.
He just seems interested in promoting himself rather than the care of his patients.
