Internal Medicine Doctor: Madhvi M. Thakkar, MD


Hi, I’m Madhvi Thakkar. It’s a very interesting story. When I was just about five or
six year old, and my older sister, who is also a physician. She used to let me tag along when she
went for rounds over the weekends. And she would be going
from patient to patient. And every time, she was having
a conversation with her patients, I would be just so amazed,
looking at the expression, and the feeling of gratitude when
the patients were feeling better. When they were having the conversation,
I was like this is really cool. I just can’t imagine working,
and having such a feeling of accomplishing something, or
just being able to help someone. So it was since that age that I
had decided that I was going to be a physician when I grew up. It is just the feeling that
you are able to help people. You get to know these people
on such a personal level, and they’re able to share
their life experiences. And sometimes I feel like I’m
not only helping them, but I’m learning a lot by them sharing
their personal experiences. I enjoy working out,
listening to music, and I have a teenage son who
loves watching Doctor Who. So we are catching up on the reruns of
Doctor Who on the Netflix on the weekends.
