I was somewhat surprised no weight or vital signs were taken. Maybe it was not needed for this visit at this particular clinic.

I would like to thank and commend Dr. Thrackel's assistant whose name is Kim Wilson. She inquired if I had a handicap parking sign and I told her I did not because I had not known how to obtain one. She returned with the necessary form completely filled out. I appreciated her kindness and think you should know what a good patient advocate she is. Thank you

OU Physicians Patient Apr 14, 2016

Dr. Thakral is "second to none" as far as my past experience with any doctor I have encountered during my lifetime and I have seen many. His bed side manner shows genuine concern for the patient's well being, like he was treating one of his own family members. He is never in a hurry to move on to his next patient until he knows the patient is totally satisfied with his assessment, recommendations and that all of the questions have been answered. It is obvious that he is an expert in his field and has a vast amount of knowledge and he projects great confidence which makes one feel that he is sincere in gaining the best possible result for the patient.
