Dr. Kaz was a source of comfort and reassurance during a time when I needed it most. His surgical ability and his medical insight were immpecable allowing for me to have a speedy recovery in a situation where the recovery time could have been lengthy. Additionally, his bedside manner and attentiveness were a huge plus!

Dr. Kaz is the man, ladies and gentlemen. 4 Main Reasons: 1) I was in and out of the office in 30 minutes every time. Could not have waited more than 5 at any given moment. Absolutely unheard of in the going-to-the-doctor industry. 2) I had a rare foot injury which I sustained while partying. He gave the extra effort and got consultations from peers and mentors to share with me before we made a decision on what to do. 3) I just went on a 30 minute run before writing this.

I had severe pain in my left foot when walking from Morton's neuroma and a bunion. I was seeking treatment from a podiatrist that only masked the pain. I was then referred to Dr. Kaz and scheduled an appointment. I immediately knew that I made the right decision after he evaluated my foot and discussed my options in detail with me. It has been 4 months since my surgery and I am able to walk to/from work everyday and up to 8 miles on weekends pain free. I am so grateful and happy!

I had a triple ankle fracture while skiing in Colorado. The local emergency center stabilized me just so I can get back to Chicago. That was on Friday. Dr. Kaz, who came strongly recommended, was able to see me as early as Monday. After doing an X-ray, he scheduled the surgery for Tuesday at Swedish Covenant hospital. The surgery went well - so well, in fact, that I often forget what my ankle has been through. It's been over two years and my ankle is doing great. Thank you, Dr. Kaz!
