Doctor Kundu is amazing specialist. I got two opinions from different Doctors but decided to work with Dr. Kundu. When we had an appointment, he considered many variables that should determine my treatment plan. He took all my concerns very seriously and any low probability complications were taking in to account. He was extremely logical and smart. His explanations were clear. Dr. Kundu not just uses his experience and intuition but thinks carefully about your case. Also, my surgery went perfect and now I am cancer free. I would recommend anyone at least go for a second opinion, especially if you have an unusual case.

I have had other interactions with urologists, and Dr. Kundu was exceptional in the time and care he took to explain my diagnosis, the treatment options, and their risks and ramifications. And he did this all on his lunch break. I felt he was looking at me as a patient, rather than a collection of biopsy samples.

I absolutely love Dr Kundu. He has always treated me like I am important to him. He always takes plenty of time to answer any questions and explain things so I can understand. He talks to me not at me and is very concerned about all problems I may have with my condition. I tell everyone who has a Urology problem to have their Dr refer them to Dr Kundu

Dr. Kundu offered to answer any questions I might have, but there was no need, as he'd done a really thorough job explaining not only what he was about to do, but also commenting as the procedure progressed - AND he provided a very clear picture of what the follow-up would be, which I really appreciated.

I am very impressed with Dr. Kundu and had heard wonderful things about him. He exceeded my expectations! I transferred from an MD with the North Shore group and find Northwestern far superior. Dr. Kundu is extremely competent, kind, caring, did a great job explaining things and sharing what he thought to be the best plan of action. He was able to get me into surgery within a matter of days and made room in his schedule! I am thankful to be his patient and under his care!
