The was the first time I went to Dr Kandula. She was very busy but once she was in the exam room with me she took her time, listening to the reason for my visit and checking the issue. I also really appreciated that she didn’t talk down to me. It felt like I was having a conversation with a neighbor. I really liked her.

It was my first visit with her. She was professional. She provided short-term treatment to alleviate my pain immediately and recommended a specialist for long term treatment. I am pleased with the approach.

Appt. for blocked ear…I could not hear out of right ear. She checked the both ears. They both had wax but she only removed the wax on the ear that I could not hear. She said she was going to send an RX but never did. I woke up today and now I cannot hear out of my left hear. I had this same problem about three years ago and the NP removed wax from both ears. I am calling for an appointment and hope I can get one today. What a waste of time.

External Professional Relationships

Pharmaceutical, device, and biotechnology companies frequently collaborate with basic scientists and physicians within an academic medical center to help advance science and improve patient care. These relationships are important in achieving scientific breakthroughs and in establishing the effectiveness and safety of promising new therapies. In order to assure objectivity in clinical research and patient care, the Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine (Feinberg), Northwestern Memorial HealthCare, Children's Hospital of Chicago Medical Center, and the Shirley Ryan AbilityLab have adopted integrity policies that require research and clinical faculty (in full-time, part-time, and unpaid/voluntary categories) to report compensated and uncompensated external industry relationships. Patients are encouraged to discuss these disclosures with their physician as well as to inquire as to how these relationships are overseen by Feinberg.
