May 26, 2020 9:58 AM

phone appointments are not satisfying or thorough.

May 25, 2020 1:16 PM

Dr. Marzec and I communicate using E mails rather than face to face. I will miss him when he retires next month.

May 12, 2020 12:54 PM

Very good visit with Dr. Spanik

May 4, 2020 3:30 PM

Dr. Dodhia has been the primary care physician for a significant number of years. He has a long-standing relationship and is well versed in all of the health - physical and mental- issues at hand. This is a significant positive continuum of care.

May 2, 2020 6:56 AM

The office visit was impressive. He was very impressive. Thank you for being such a good doc.

April 28, 2020 1:04 PM

All my doctors are extremely knowledgable, personable, and professional. I like them all.

February 17, 2020 4:09 PM

Good, positive and to the point.

February 17, 2020 2:47 PM

Dr. Kakodkar is a very personal, easy to talk to doctor yet professional and gives me confidence because he knows cardiology from textbook to experience. The technical and reception staff at Advocate (formerly Dreyer) are friendly, kind, and care about people. They try to make things as easy as possible for the patients.

February 17, 2020 2:47 PM

I have been with Dreyer since I was born. I hope with Advocate, I will like it enough to remain a patient there for the rest of my life. The cardiology department is certainly what I would like to have.

February 15, 2020 10:54 AM

Excellent care and answered all my questions. I will be receiving additional care

February 12, 2020 9:05 AM

not enough time

February 10, 2020 2:23 PM

To bad you do not have higher then 10 for this doctor. Or any of the other doctors in you cardiac dept.

February 8, 2020 5:14 PM

I truly hate to write anything for fear it will be held against at surgery date coming up. I have struggled for years with heart issues and I just cannot seem to get anywhere. Dr X always has treated me as if I am his most important patient at every appt. Dr Kakokadar however doesnt have time to even sit down in a chair. This is nothing new; I always feel as if im making up my heart condition and that nothing shows is what has been said to me on many occasions. However I did have 3 ablation surgeries done by him. I just always cringe when I have to see him as I feel as if im burdening him. I just have not had good luck and will do some research in the future after my surgery is complete. next week.

February 3, 2020 8:00 PM

this visit was to have what was supposed to be a routine check. it turned out not to be routine, but it was handled very well.
