Dr. Kadyk is wonderful to work with; however, the front desk workers are not. They were disrespectful from the time I arrived until the time I walked out: there was no formal greeting or goodbye and they looked at me like I was crazy for trying to check for my appointment. If I were to recommend Dr. Kadyk to anyone, I would warn them about the complacent, unwelcoming secretaries.

Dr.Kadyk addressed my problem right a way and gave me excellent care. Lot of information about my issue was given. Would certainly go again whenever needed.

Everything was great except for the wait. Then I saw the sign that said a new program was being started!

Phenomenal staff! They were able to schedule me an emergency appointment, less than a week after I called. Less than a week after the appointment I already see significant improvement! Thank you so much for your time and excellence!
