Dr. Sachin Kukreja is one of the best surgeons in Chicago. My experiences was great! He is an amazing surgeon but an even better human being. I am 26 and was diagnosed with a rare cancer, hospital of choice- Mount Sinai. From the moment I consulted with Dr. Kukreja, I felt a sense of care. He did my surgery, he removed my tumor, and he saved my life!! After my procedure, he addressed all of my concerns, he spent time with me at my bedside. He checked on me and made sure I was completely comfortable. He explained everything in depth, there were no misunderstandings. He attended to my family and we started to feel like he was family. That's how much he cared for my well-being. I can talk on and on about how amazing Dr. Kukreja is, but I would end this review by stating "I could not have picked a better surgeon!!"
