Dr. Kandel is knowledgeable, competent, efficient. I felt that I was in good hands during my first visit. We even shared a few laughs! She did not try to push pills. What she said made sense. Dr. Kandel recommended a couple of appropriate referrals to specialists. It is up to me to find out if they are in-network. She refers to Elmhurst-Edward in-house laboratory and physicians so I needed a new order for Quest Lab which accepts my insurance. I may have to get another referral from Dr. Kandel to use non-E.-E. physicians. I haven't gotten that far. Her staff is outstanding, especially Mary.
