If I could give this fraud a minus rating I would. My wife had developed an acute earache with appreciable hearing loss. Our primary physician recommended Kacker so we made an appointment. When we saw him, he was perfunctory in the extreme, looked at her ears (without probes) and said she had impacted wax and promptly started aspirating her ears. He said that after his magical wax removal, she would regain her hearing. And even though the interior of one ear was moist and inflamed he proclaimed her infection free. He also told her she should cancel the hearing test she had set up at his clinic for the next day. When we got home, my wife's condition worsened and we eventually checked her in to New York Presbyterian, where she was diagnosed with pneumonia. She now had almost total hearing loss in the inflamed ear. And when we told her medical team that Dr. Kacker had told hear to cancel her hearing test, they were stunned and arranged for an audiologist to examine her. Her pneumonia is being treated successfully, but she remains deaf in the "non-infected" ear. If she suffers any permanent hearing loss, Dr. Kacker can certainly expect to be facing a malpractice suit.
