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.
He and his team are the best. It's unbelievable what he can do. He answers every question and is very confident in his work. I really appreciate him taking me as a patient. I'm starting my 3rd week of recovery for 6 procedures on one foot and he said it was a best case scenario.
Knowledgeable but not very friendly....he was more intimidating and not interested in having to answer questions (seemed annoyed when questions were asked and he didn't really welcome questions or concerns....his personality was very off putting....
Dr. Kadakia is such an expert in his field and is so kind and caring. In my lifetime of cancers, multiple surgeries, and doctor visits, I have seen many doctors. Dr. Kadakia tops this list as the very best in all ways!
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!
Dr. Kadakia is quite personable, as was his associate (sorry I forgot his name but it began with a K). He is very knowledgeable and explained all my options quite thoroughly and gave me his honest opinion on what he thought to be the best choice. All the office personnel were also very pleasant to deal with.
It started with scheduling the initial appointment--fast and courteous--auto reminders --upon the visit the initial check in also was quick and everyone is so friendly --all the staff is so friendly and instantly relaxes you. The doctor is very relaxed and easy to talk to also his attendant -- I feel so fortunate to be able to have the opportunity to be able to see the best doctors in the United States here in chicago.
Dr Kadakia was such a breath of fresh air. He took him time, was approachable, and realistic. He didn't push surgery and he encouraged me to explore all the options. I'm so appreciate of the approach he took and I look forward to working with him.
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.
I am a nurse I am on my feet from anywhere from 8 to 12 hours a day I was extremely worried about making the decision to have foot surgery dr Kadakia explained in great detail the surgery and the recovery timeline he gave me a great deal of information for me to make my own decisions about the surgery.
Dr. Kadakia is one of the few I found with extensive experience for my particular foot issue. He has taken the time to explain x-rays with me, answers all my questions, and is straight forward in telling me what I need to know. He is easy to talk with and very professional with me, as a patient, and from what I see, also with his staff.
Dr. KADAKIA Always maintain a very personable and professional and considerate relationship between Doctor and patient. Before surgery he took the time to explain every step of the way that would involve the surgery and the details of it and the recovery processes
Dr Kadakia is a terrific doctor! He gives the patient his upmost attention and answers all questions and is willing to spend the proper time explaining treatment, patient's condition and so forth. He is an extremely skilled surgeon. He is very attentive to the patients needs and concerns.
I was extremely disappointed with Dr. Anish R. Kadakia's service and would certainly not recommend him for care. Dr.Kadakia displayed bad bedside manner, he appeared rushed the entire visit, and spoke to me for less than 5 minutes. Dr. Kadakia presented me with four options verbally using only medical jargon and did not allow a chance for me to ask additional questions or voice concerns. Additionally, for an unexplained reason there was another doctor and medical student in the room. The doctors mainly used jargon to speak to each other and hardly referred to me at all. Their presence did not provide me more clarity in any way and if anything, made me uncomfortable being forced to sit in a room with 3 people in such close proximity in the middle of a pandemic. Overall it did not appear to me that Dr. Kadakia prioritized patient care at all and I will not be returning. I hope this review is brought to his attention and that in the future he is more cognizant about being respectful of patient's time and needs.
Literally the best doctor I've ever had, good sense of humor & listens to my concerns & gives me great advice. He's realistic about what I should do & is one of the only doctors I've had that I feel truly weighs the risks " benefits of surgery, which is MUCH APPRECIATED! :)
I was treated attentively... I was giving confidential information that was clear and detail to my problem. Mainly I was satisfied with the immediate determination to research and resolve the problem..
Dr Kadakia was clear with explaining my injury and a path forward. He was knowledgeable and considered my case history to determine how to move forward. The only reason I gave a 9 and not a 10 was due to the over hour wait to meet with the doctor.
He explained why I am having such pain after a surgery I had a year ago (not this facility or doctor). He presented a very clear plan on how this needs to be fixed and would require surgery, and what would be involved in the surgery. Very confident and professional, while easy to talk with and willing to answer any questions I had.
Dr. Kadakia has a soul. His manner is thoughtful and kind. He informed me thoroughly of my surgeries, recovery, and expected results. I highly recommend him as a surgeon and as a human being. He brings out the best in his students, residents, and fellows.
Explored multiple courses of action, listened carefully to my concerns. Explained/addressed issues around each concern. Engaged me (the patient) in exploring and determining tradeoffs among alternative approaches...Answered direct questions that helped me understand his the surgery in detail.
Dr. Kadakia could not be more professional, honest and personable when dealing with you. He is relatable and gives you straight forward answers to your questions. I cannot say enough great things about him and his practice.
The ortho personnel were very helpful,professional,&kind. Dr.Kadakia has a genuine kindness about him.He explains things very well and answers all my questions. .It is an excellently run unit. .IMPRESSIVE!
