Dr. Laura M Kulik has the following 3 specialties
A hepatologist is a physician who specializes in the diagnosis and treatment of diseases of the liver, gall bladder, pancreas and biliary tree - the path through which bile that is secreted by the liver travels to the duodenum. These organs are responsible for many essential bodily functions, such as production of hormones and enzymes, filtering the blood, detoxifying chemicals, metabolizing drugs, and digesting and processing food.
Common disorders that are treated by hepatologists are cirrhosis of the liver, gallstones, pancreatitis and hepatitis.
A gastroenterologist is a specialist in diagnosis and treatment of conditions involving the digestive/gastrointestinal (GI) tract. These doctors are experts on how food moves through the digestive system and is chemically broken down, with nutrients being absorbed and waste excreted. You might see this kind of doctor if you are experiencing any number of stomach issues, some of which might be severe diarrhea, irritable bowel syndrome, hemorrhoids, ulcers, acid reflux, Crohn's disease and more.
- Internal Medicine
An internist is a physician who focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of conditions that affect the adult population—both acute and chronic.
These doctors are often who adults see as their primary physicians because they treat a broad range of illnesses that do not require surgical or specialist interventions. They also work to help a patient maintain optimal health in order to prevent the onset of disease.
In addition to treating the common cold and flu, internists also treat chronic diseases like diabetes and heart disease.

I am saddened to read reviews that are less than stellar. Dr. Kulik and her close staff have been thorough, patient, open to consider all treatments with discussion before decision making. Dr. Kulik listens with sufficient time to answer all questions, significant or insignificant. Pre testing was comprehensive to confirm my liver disease and proceed with options of treatment and held decisions to patient (myself). Less than one year from diagnosis, I have been bed ridden, wheelchair bound, walker dependent, cane dependent, TO full health and well being independence. This would not have happened if it not have been for Dr Kulik, Katie, Lindsey, Dr. Chang and many others in radiology and other departments.
Dr. Kulik was the physician within the hepatology group who saw me most regualrly and frequently in my pre-transplant care. She provide excellent quality services and knowledgeable accurate advice and care for me up to the time of my transplant which in large part due to her diagnosis and care was extremely successful. My transplant was four years ago and I am doing exceedingly well physically and emotionally and I have every expectation of looking forward to a full and fully functional life thanks to Dr. Kulik and the entire hepatology staff at Northwestern.
