Thaker & Brahmhatt
No experience with Dr. Thaker, but Dr. Brahmbhat has demonstrated an utter disregard for patient comfort and standards of care. After a friend of mine went to him and shared her experience I was shocked by the techniques employed for his female exams. I also work in medicine (though not as a physician) and went to several of my colleagues to ask about his methods for answers/reassurance. They confirmed to me, multiple times that his technique was non-standard, and expressed concern for the well-being of my friend. As a medical professional I am shocked by the quality of treatment provided, and greatly concerned for my friend, who now has to undergo the emotional fallout of such treatment. She is in the process of filing a formal complaint through the medical board.My sincere advice is to seek medical care elsewhere.

Dr. Head is a good and caring doctor who listens to what you say and does not jump to extensive testing which is not required.

Doctor Thacker
Makes no sense that he's my assigned doctor through my insurance and I try to call and make an appointment and the soonest he could see me is 3 mos. Crazy I bet I do wait. Guess I'm changing providers

Great doctor! Easy to talk to doctor that yearns to understand what is going on with you. Dr. Head will prescribe needed meds but he also talks about how diet and exercise can avoid the need for some of those. It's those sorts of things that let me know that he cares about his patients just as much as he cares about the money he makes caring for them.
Tips & Advices
Several forms of pain management exist that are not approved typically treated by physicians or covered by health insurance plans. These include therapies like acupuncture, for example, or herbal preparations sold in stores. Before beginning any form of treatment or medication not approved by a doctor, it’s a good idea to still reach out to a physician or expert in alternative medicine for advice, or conduct some research online first.
Managing pain in children can be complicated, as kids may have more difficulty communicating their pain to doctors. Children also need to be more carefully monitored when taking most medications.
Health insurance might cover a selection of approved pain management therapies. Every insurance plan is different, so patients should check with their provider to make sure.
Patients might be instructed to continue therapy at home, either through regular exercise or specific treatment. Some people also find that getting frequent rest, taking warm baths or avoiding certain foods, for example, can help manage pain.
Side effects depend on the exact drugs and dosages used, as well as the disease being treated and many other factors. Some pain-relieving drugs, especially opioids, are known to cause drowsiness. Many antidepressants also cause a variety of adverse effects. Doctors must work closely with patients to minimize these side effects in the course of treatment.
