About Me

Parag B. Thakkar  MD
Parag B. Thakkar MD

I love being a physician. I believe in a team approach and incorporating patient views/background when developing treatment plans or health goals. I have a special interest in diabetes, high blood pressure, high cholesterol and weight management. My focus is to modify risk factors thereby prevent or delay the progression of diseases. 
On a personal note, I am a lifelong student and enjoy learning new concepts. I believe simple living and high thinking is the key to good health and happiness. I live in Lake County with my wife & two children. In my free time, enjoy listening to music, reading, biking and playing with my kids. Besides English, I also speak fluent Hindi and Gujarati language.
