Dr Kadakia is very knowledgeable, and is able to explain things so my SOP and I always understand. He never acts like he is in a hurry even though I know he is very busy. When he comes in the room he always greets everyone and pulls up a seat to talk to us.

Very personable Caring. Spends enough time explaining and giving enough time to answer questions. Excellent bed side manners. I would highly recommend him to my family and friends. And he is an excellent surgeon! I had my surgery done by him and I am fully satisfied!

He's empathic at the same time he is very fact focused. He gives good clear explanations. He doesn't believe in rushing to surgery when there are others ways to less-intrusively reach a goal of recovery. By the way, Northwestern ought to hire Dr. Kadakia's current Resident. He's fantastic! Get him before he leaves town and takes his talent elsewhere!

Dr Kadakia is knowledgeable and takes his time explaining details to his patients. He pulls up the X-rays and shows areas of concern as he discusses them. He is patient and doesn’t rush through the appointment.

Dr. Kadakia always explains things very well in terms that I can understand. He informs me on what I should/should not do to have the best outcome for my ankle. He also explained what the future plans for my care will be and answers any questions that I have.

He came very highly recommended. I have been to other podiatrists before. I was actually told my foot was not broken here in Indiana and it was. Because of that I will have arthritis in my foot for the rest of my life. I still have a photo copy of my ex ray from my old doctor with his hand writing with the misdiagnosing. I am so happy to find a doctor that knows what he is doing. I have already recommended him to a friend that has a daughter that has been to 4 or 5 other doctors and is still in pain.

Did an excellent job of explaining what was wrong, what needs to be addressed, short term and long term care options. And I was offered options to how he would proceed with my care. Fantastic bedside manner.

Was very thorough & professional & explained my medical situation in a way that was clear, honest, and easy to understand. I’ve been lucky to have him as a surgeon for the past couple years, he’s saved my ankle numerous times!

I cannot imagine being under the care of anyone else with a potential career ending injury and yet still have the utmost faith that I will make a complete and successful return to the stage. Also, see above.

Read my above answer. I think he's a wonderful doctor and a wonderful and fair human being. My foot surgery was not complicated so I don't know about very complicated surgeries but from my experience I have had nothing but the best from Dr Kadakia!

Dr. Kadakia’s professional demeanor and good-natured personality were very confidence inspiring. I was made to feel comfortable and at ease throughout the examination. He was caring and thoroughly answered all my questions.

Dr. Kadakia did surgery on one of my feet and now I am coming back for my other foot. He is highly skilled and the recovery from my procedure is so much easier than other institutions and surgeons I evaluated.

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.
