At Northwestern Medicine, our patient’s feedback is important to us. While different care providers have their own unique strengths, we strive to be as transparent as possible with our quality of care.
I recommended Dr. Rakhee Kalelkar to my husband and he has been really happy with her care of him as I. She always takes the time to listen and explain her plan of care for you. She is also willing to listen and understand why/if some of the things she suggests aren't what you think is right for you. She will listen to alternatives you may have and give her honest and professional opinion. My family greatly appreciates her respect and attitude.
I want to let Dr. Kalekar know how grateful we are to her for her tremendous care and concern. My husband went to see her in a medical emergency situation when his regular GP was not available. It was because Dr. Kalekar recognized the gravity of the situation, consulted a specialist and her office called and had us go to ER immediately, that a very serious situation was handled appropriately. I want to thank you sincerely for going the extra mile.
The doctor addressed all of my concerns and explained everything very well. She was very knowledgeable and took her time. The office even included a print out of one of my health concerns to take with me as I left so I could inform myself further at home (they also explained everything to me in person).
