About Dr. Thakkar

The majority of my time is spent in Rock Hill, SC where our ACR-accredited center has consistently ranked highest in patient satisfaction. When I am not working, I enjoy spending time with my wife and two boys, playing tennis, watching college and professional sports, and tinkering with computers.

"I chose radiation oncology to help teach the patient and their loved ones about the diagnosis and treatment options so that they have all the information to make informed decisions."
