It is apparent to me,, that Dr. Padmaja Vittal loves her work and cares about her patient. She takes time to listen and then makes good recommendations on how to manage symptoms. Of all the medical offices we've been to, Northwestern gives us the most comprehensive aftercare summary. I especially like the table listing the times and dosages of the meds.

*Dr. Vittal is one of the best drs. you could ask for. She follows up with phone call. Very kind & caring. I've continued to see her after our move out of state. I drive nearly 2 hours to see her. She is everything you could ask for. I think NW Med is very fortunate to have her.

Dr. Vittal is very good. We transferred my husband's care to her about a year ago from Northwestern offices downtown Chicago and we are very pleased. She is very professional and pleasant and listens carefully to our concerns and addresses any issues we have. You can tell that she cares about her patients and we are happy to have her as our physician.
