What People Say About Dr. Rajendra Kadiyala, MD
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful

My mother used to go to Dr Kadiyala when he practiced in Miami. Since he moved to NYC (where I live), she flies to see him for her hand troubles. She refuses to go to any other hand surgeon! And I promise, it’s NOT just an excuse to visit me! I couldn’t understand why she didn’t just find another doctor in Miami. But once I met Dr. Kadiyala, I completely understood my mother’s loyalty to him. He has a beautiful, gentle bedside manner. He is bright and curious. He explained everything to her in a way that she could understand. His surgical skills were top notch and she has recovered beautifully. We love this doctor and are so grateful to him for his wonderful combination of technical skills + interpersonal skills. You won’t be disappointed by this physician.

Dr. Kadiyala is a man of extreme integrity, empathy, and curiosity. You can tell that he knows so much because he is not afraid to be surprised by something new. For example, a not so great doctor will try to pigeon-hole your diagnosis into something final. Dr. Kadiyala is nothing of the sort. He is the Captain Kirk of Orthopedic Surgery. He is willing to push the limits of his own knowledge and set the course, even if it means he must decline to operate. He sets the standard for medical ethics.

Very efficient process from xray to check-in to expert clinical opinion. Dr. Kadiyala examined my hand, showed me what he was seeing on the xray and explained my condition, timeframe for healing and what i could do to hasten it. Very satisfied.

Dr Kadiyala takes as much time as you need in understanding what he is telling you. He properly diagnosed my shoulder issue and prescribed a treatment which was effective. He follows up and stays in touch to make sure everything is going well. I highly recommend him.

When I had a hip fracture, he performed the surgery. He and his anesthesia team were absolutely professional and made a miracle happen as medical practitioners. I very much respect his skill of surgery. What happened to me was the worst thing ever in my life but the fact that he and his team did the operation was really the best thing.

I broke my elbow and the tendon need to be reattached. He saw me 45 minutes after we called his office and changed his schedule so that I could be operated on the next day. I found him incredibly caring and reassuring. He performed plastic surgery so the scar is minimal. I recommended a friend who was already scheduled for hand surgery elsewhere who, thanks to the advice of Dr. Kadiyala, cancelled it and 6 months later is fine. Additionally, the staff is wonderful.
