Excellent surgeon. Very professional and compassionate.
in Romeoville, IL |
I had an umbilical hernia, made an appointment to see Dr. Kakarla. He made an assessment and recommendation that should be done. I had the umbilical hernia done with mesh, went in through the belly button. Surgery went well. I had a pain of 3 on the day of and day after surgery .very mild discomfort if anything. Day 3 was no pain at all. Followed up a week later all is healing well. Excellent experience anda great doctor.
