July 2, 2020 8:09 AM

Very good. Hats off.

June 29, 2020 3:37 PM

Dr Makda, an orthopedic surgeon, recommended that I visit a back specialist as he thought I did not require a hip replacement

June 29, 2020 3:37 PM

Very good experience. I wish I had seen him 10 months ago when my pain started.

June 29, 2020 11:08 AM

I was very impressed and pleased.

May 11, 2020 10:44 PM

it was good for my first visit by phone.

May 6, 2020 8:25 AM

I am the guardian for my brother who is mentally challenged. His medical service received was excellent. He is doing very well.

Good experience. Dr. is excellent. I have complete faith in him.

April 10, 2020 12:00 AM

I have a great health care team. Thank you everyone.

April 3, 2020 12:00 AM

Excellent - service!

March 20, 2020 1:35 PM

March 20, 2020 9:26 AM

Everything very good including the girl that is in charge of checking because she speaks Spanish and attended me very well.

March 17, 2020 8:12 AM

outstanding Service!

March 7, 2020 2:26 PM

February 27, 2020 6:53 AM


February 24, 2020 9:34 PM

I was so happy he could see me as soon as he did as I was in a lot of pain, was going for physical therapy but I seemed to be getting worse.

February 24, 2020 9:34 PM

I found Dr Makda to be very honest and a calming and caring dr and I am very thankful I went to him!

February 24, 2020 5:39 PM

The provider was very professional and treated me with a courteous attitude.

February 22, 2020 7:33 AM

very friendly, listened about my concerns-- ordered tests (MRI's) to determine specific reason for hip, lumbar pain.

February 20, 2020 11:00 PM

Dr. Makda is an outstanding, compassionate & caring surgeon.

February 20, 2020 11:00 PM

Every experience is met with warmth & care.

February 13, 2020 11:00 PM

Clinic room dated. Clean, but appeared very worn.

February 3, 2020 2:16 PM

Dr. Makda is the best! I am hearing from a lot of sources that Dr. Makda's patients recover better and quicker than most complete knee replacement patients.

February 3, 2020 2:16 PM

Thank you Dr. Makda!

January 29, 2020 10:12 AM

The doctor & his staff were outstanding! It was my first visit. If I ever needed an orthopedic surgeon, Dr. Makda would be my first choice.

January 28, 2020 2:56 PM

Dr. Makda has always been courteous, friendly, and patient. He's a good listener.

January 28, 2020 1:24 PM

Dr. Junaid Makda was very professional and thorough.

January 22, 2020 12:28 PM

Dr. Makda discussed the difficult question of whether to undergo knee replacement. He was very effective at providing information and responding to all of my questions. He respected the knowledge I... about my condition, and ensured that all decisions were made by me, and my wife.

January 20, 2020 2:26 PM

I saw junaid Makada once and I will never see him again. Arrogant and condescending. Compared himself to my breast surgeon saying we are more direct and spend less time with the patient. Spent barely any time with me. Seemed in a big hurry

January 20, 2020 2:26 PM

Junaid Makada was very unprofessional. I asked to see his partner as I didn't have a great experience. The receptionist insisted that I talk to the office manager. Dr. Makada decided to call me the following day at 8:15am, 8:30 a.m. 8:45 a.m. 9:15 a.m. and the following day. I emailed him my concerns via the portal. He instead called me again and was very rude. He said that I made a complaint against him and what it does to his reputation and so forth. I hung up and he called again! I emailed him via the portal and told him to stop contacting me as I felt harrassed. He responded saying he was sorry to disappoint me. And his partners can help. I do not feel comfortable with this office and will not go back. I do not recommend. Gave me anxiety.

January 19, 2020 6:24 AM

he was very professional, with visual aid was able to show me the condition of my hip. We then talked about what procedures I wanted to do.

January 10, 2020 2:30 PM

Love Dr. Makda! Very happy with my new hip!

January 6, 2020 12:28 PM

This was a follow-up from surgery - It went quickly & all my questions were answered. I needed a form for work & they graciously got that for me quickly.

January 6, 2020 12:28 PM

Staff is very friendly & efficient.

January 3, 2020 12:33 PM

Dr. & staff were very efficient and polite, also informative.

January 3, 2020 12:33 PM

Showed the X Rays and explained the procedure to be performed and why.

December 28, 2019 3:49 AM

Really appreciated

December 28, 2019 3:49 AM

Really good

December 23, 2019 7:07 PM

It was the first time I saw this doctor and I was very impressed with him. I asked him if I could use him as my Orthopedic Surgeon as I didn't have one at this time.

December 21, 2019 4:14 PM

Dr. Makda gave me clear information about my options re: my surgical options

December 21, 2019 4:14 PM

I felt that Dr. Makda really cared about my outcome and when I saw him in the hospital, he paid attention to concerns and questions I asked about.

December 9, 2019 8:36 PM

An excellent Dr. Spends time and answers questions and explains so that they are understandable

November 25, 2019 5:55 PM

Dr. Makda was very professional. Always listened & explained everything.

November 13, 2019 11:00 PM

Good experience, dr. knew exactly what was wrong with my knees and we discussed how to proceed.

November 9, 2019 8:41 AM

Very thorough, answered all my questions, told me exactly what to expect with this surgery.

October 28, 2019 7:00 PM

I received great service. Some of the questions I answered referred to other doctors I saw that were recommended by Advocate.

October 25, 2019 7:00 PM

very knowledgeable and understanding

October 17, 2019 7:00 PM

Very good visit.

October 6, 2019 7:00 PM

Always very nice and answers my questions.

September 23, 2019 7:00 PM

Dr. Makda is an amazing surgeon. I'm pain free thanks to him. I know several people who had their hips replaced & didn't have the great results I had with Dr. Makda.

September 18, 2019 7:00 PM

Doctor was wonderful. He gave me a shot in my left knee and now it is better.

September 18, 2019 7:00 PM

All went well. He was very informative.

September 17, 2019 7:00 PM

Dr. Makda: I could not have asked for a better doctor. He did a hip replacement on me and every thing was perfect. I can't say thank you. Enough.

September 8, 2019 7:00 PM

ALL good!!!

August 25, 2019 7:00 PM

August 7, 2019 7:00 PM

Very good - would highly recommend - last visit discussed progress needed to thoroughly recover.

July 29, 2019 7:00 PM

Not concerned or compassionate. Did not discuss treatment options for my severe pain, said he does not prescribe Norco because of the opioid crisis.

July 29, 2019 7:00 PM

Was excellent surgeons, nurses, reception, therapist the its a well coordinated team.

July 7, 2019 7:00 PM

June 27, 2019 7:00 PM

Very open, to the point, says it as it is, willing to explain my questions.

June 12, 2019 7:00 PM

Was honest and gave me some hope at what he recommended for my health issue.

June 2, 2019 7:00 PM

patient hearing, precise and straight talk. Understands the health issues well and provides satisfactory solutions.

June 2, 2019 7:00 PM

Was put on the schedule right away after I came out of the acute care center. X-rays were order, saw Dr. right away after that. He was friendly and interested in getting me back on my feet.

May 28, 2019 7:00 PM

I found Dr. Makda to excel in explaining my diagnosed condition. The best I have experienced in this specialty.

May 27, 2019 7:00 PM

very good

May 26, 2019 7:00 PM

Post-op. Excellent surgeon. Complete hip replacement; no pain, no need for pain meds at all. Walked first day. Returned to work in 2-1/2 weeks. Dr. Makda always takes as much time as is needed to make you feel comfortable; never rushed. Always makes sure you are well-informed about an upcoming procedure and its impact on your life. One of the best doctors I have ever had.

May 26, 2019 7:00 PM

very good,great job from everyone!!

May 5, 2019 7:00 PM

Excellent surgeon, using newest surgical method (frontal hip replacement), good follow-up.

April 8, 2019 7:00 PM

Very good.No problem

April 6, 2019 7:00 PM

I would go to any hospital/clinic Dr. Makda practices at, he is in my opinion the BEST orthopedic surgeon in Illinois and possible the US!

March 23, 2019 7:00 PM

Dr. Magda is a fantastic surgeon and has a very caring attitude with me.

March 21, 2019 7:00 PM

Dr. Makda is an orthopedic. Very thorough, I believe. Knee replacement was successful, now the hip.

February 16, 2019 6:00 PM
