Dr. Kulkarni took a great amount of time with me and my family. She eased my concerns-she explained everything clearly and took her time! I cannot tell you how much it means to a newly diagnosed cancer patient. I have been doctoring at Northwestern for over 25 years-this visit solidifies why!!!

Dr. Kulkarni was calm & patient and incredibly kind. I have a phobia of hospitals and doctors and she was incredibly sensitive to my anxiety. I could not have asked for a nicer doctor.

Dr. Kulkarni was excellent -- she thoroughly explained everything in language that was easy to understand -- I wish there was an option to rate her as better than "very good."
