Excellent doctor very polite and afficient
in Rancho Santa Margarita, CA |
Nightmare experience. Came to first appointment with x-rays from emergency room showing that I have a hairline fracture on patella. Dr. Kadakia adamantly dismissed the fracture, ordered MRI walked out. First visit lasted less than 5 minutes. Second visit went over MRI results, showing me a completely torn meniscus on the MRI, he would need to remove it through arthroscopy. Day of arthroscopic surgery he informs me after the procedure there was nothing wrong with my meniscus and walked away.

Dr. Kadakia does an excellent job of listening to what I have to say so that he can understand my primary concerns and then takes all steps needed to properly evaluate any issues I am experiencing to get to a good diagnosis. He surgically resolved a significant should injury I had and took his time to make sure I understood each step of my care. He followed up with we regularly to make sure I had everything I needed so I would recommend any patient to seek his services.

Dr Kadakia is an exceptional surgeon. He is not only adept at diagonosis but also considerate towards his patients. Would highly recommend Dr. Kadakia.
in Costa Mesa, CA |
Dr. Kadakia is an excellent physician who is caring and spends a great deal of time making sure his patients understand their diagnosis and how to treat the condition. He has helped me recover from several medical issues I have had over the last few years. I would highly recommend that if you are in need of a orthopedic surgeon, you should go see Dr. Kadakia.

I tore my ACL skiing a few years back and visited Dr Kadakia. He replaced my torn ACL with a cadaver ACL. I am very happy with the results, the leg that had surgery is much stronger than my other leg. I was really afraid I would have to give up certain sports because of this surgery. Since I have gone back on the slopes skiing and the leg with the replaced ACL is great. I would definitely recommend Dr Kadakia to all my friends and family

Not worth the copay. Spent only 3 min. with me in which he reviewed MRI images & report of broken bone. He didn't provide any useful info regarding my serious injury or method of repair/recovery. I won't mention the other issues but he doesn't seem to have any interest or concern about patients or their injuries?!?!
Aliso Viejo, CA |
doctor was dismissive missing a fracture. 1st appt: had to show him spot on xray where the ER doctor saw a fracture. Reply? "oh i think i see something". He missed a "crushed" scaphoid and put a removable splint on and said to "move it around at night and showering". a month later follow-up, another dismissive appointment; said he'd call with the results but "looking better, start using it more and getting out of the splint". next day rush phone call to surgery. certainly not with him...

worst attitude, treats you like a transaction. will suggest something even when he knows the tests are negative. obviously does not care.
