Dr. Kadakia is both an exceptional surgeon and an exceptional person. He takes the time to explain the appropriate surgical procedure and discusses what it involves, time to recovery, etc. I think he truly cares about his patients as people. This is a sharp contrast to the surgeon that i consulted at Rush, whose only interest was doing a surgical procedure regardless of circumstances. I think he's the best!

I was suffering with a terribly arthritic right ankle and became aware of total ankle arthroplasty which appealed to me because of my active lifestyle. My extensive research led me to Dr. Kadakia and from the moment I met him I knew I had the right doctor. He came highly recommended through medical professionals and various articles that I read. He thoroughly explained the procedure and the possible ramifications to my wife and I which I was grateful for. He provided me with literature and information regarding the entire process. The operation went smoothly and the follow-up visits have been wonderful. He is down to earth with a great sense of humor. The entire staff at Northwestern, especially PA-C Brett Wassink, have just been fabulous.

Dr. Kadakia is an amazing surgeon. He is so compassionate and knowledgeable. He really works with the patient to find out what will help them the best and works out a plan with them. Everything is done in a very efficient manner. I cant speak highly enough of Dr. Kadakia. He talks to the patient as a real person, he does not talk down to people, and answers all the questions I have ever had. I knew my plan before I left everytime, which is more than I can say for many other I have been too. I will continue to tell people how awesome he is as a person and provider.

Dr. Kadakia, Danielle, and the rest of the imaging staff and his staff are outstanding. They are always more than accommodating and try everything they can to get you what you need as soon as possible. I am a health care provider and I know what to look for in a surgeon and his staff, and Dr. Kadakia and his staff and the imaging team are top notch. I can't speak highly enough about their knowledge and compassion, and their dedication to detail. I will tell everyone I can about how outstanding this whole team is and refer as many patients as I can to them. I adore them all, and will continue to only use Northwestern for my ortho needs.
