Dr. Kadakia is an excellent surgeon and a very caring physician. I come all the way from NYC for him. The treatment and evaluation I get from Dr. Kadakia and Northwestern far exceeds any care I've gotten from Hospital for Special Surgery, Columbia or NYU. He is a great asset to NW.

Dr. Kadakia was my "third" opinion for a serious foot injury. I wish I would have started with him initially when I broke my foot in October of 2018. He was EXCELLENT. I can't say enough good things about him. He was kind, compassionate, and was clearly able to define for me what was going on with my foot, treatment options, and give me hope for successful healing.

Dr. Kadakia talked to me about my upcoming surgery. After a set of x-rays, he carefully went over the procedure, explained pre op and post op instructions. All of my questions were answered and I was excited and nervous about my surgery. But I have full confidence in Dr. Kadakia and the surgery he performed.

This was my first visit with Dr. Kadakia and I'm very impressed with both the doctor and his nurse. Dr. Kadakia took time to listen to my concerns about my Achilles injury. He gave me three options that could help and fully explained each even though we are starting with physical therapy. I would recommend Dr. Kadakia to my family and friends.
