Biography

Dhaval N. Thakkar, MD Dhaval N. Thakkar, MD received the 2014 Acclaimed Physician Promotion of Quality Care Award. Nominations for this award are made only by other physicians. A doctor is nominated for making him or herself highly accessible to fellow colleagues, providing exceptional service allowing for smooth delivery of patient care, for being responsible in bringing a new technology or service to the health system that enhances and greatly improves care to patients, or for participating in a medical research study that contributes to the advancement in a particular field and brings that research to health system patients. One of Dr. Thakkar’s nominators wrote: “He always seemed to have all the time in the world when seeing my mother, and always made us feel like we were his only patients that day,” and, “Each time [my mother was admitted to the hospital] Dr. Thakkar was called and immediately came to see her.” Another nominator wrote: “One could search the world and never find a better doctor than Dr. Thakkar,” and, “He patiently listens, is thorough in ruling out possibilities and presenting options, visits his patients when they are in the hospital, and makes his patients feel like valued human beings instead of a chart number or appointment slot. Under his care, patients know they are receiving the best care possible. He is a blessing to his patient community and his kindness and professionalism are greatly appreciated.” Dr. Thakkar is board certified by the American Board of Internal Medicine. He is a member of the American Medical Association and the American College of Physicians.

Dr. Thakkar is a board certified internist who specializes in the management of diabetes, hypertension, lipid disorders, and arthritis. “Being a primary care, family physician, all my patients are family. I respect them, and I approach their care the same way I would care for my own parents or children. My highest achievement as a doctor is helping people,” said Dr. Thakkar. 

Dr. Thakkar has served the DeKalb/Sycamore community as an established physician since 2000, and is proud to call Sycamore home. In his spare time, he enjoys traveling and spending time with his family.
