Very good doctor and nice man
Self-verified patient of Dr. Sergey M Kachar - Posted on August 31st, 2018
Recently I visited doctor Kachar because of my bursitis. He was very nice and promised that after his treatment I will feel better in two days. Actually, he was wrong: I started to feel better the next day. However, after about a week I felt that I still have some pain. Doctor Kachar told me that if I still have pain I have to get another shut. After the second shut, my pain disappeared. Now I can walk without pain. In my opinion, he is very good doctor and very nice man.
2 Hip Replacements & Excellent Experience!
Self-verified patient of Dr. Sergey M Kachar - Posted on August 18th, 2018
Dr. Kachar did total hip replacements for both of my hips over the past year and I cannot say enough about his professionalism, expertise, patience, and staff. I was referred to him from a couple of nurses who were familiar with his work and I am so grateful to them as he was everything they said he was and more. Both of my hip replacements were even done on an outpatient basis - which was remarkable and so much better of an experience - and both procedures went flawlessly and my recovery is right on track. I love Dr. Kachar's patient demeanor and careful explanation of procedures, plus giving me his utmost attention until I had no other questions. He also tells it like it is but not in an arrogant manner...just matter-of-fact so that you understand what's what and have all of the facts to make decisions. I absolutely and highly recommend Dr. Kachar if you have to have a hip replacement!

I recently consulted Dr. Kachar for what ultimately was a severe sciatica problem. I live in Canada and was without a doctor in the Chicago area, but recalled Dr. Kachar from a successful surgery he performed on my elderly uncle a few years ago. I was impressed with Dr. Kachar at that time and he delivered the same quality service for me. He went above and beyond to treat this very painful condition and was extremely patient and accommodating through the several appointments I had with him. He truly listens to your explanations and descriptions of pain and does everything in his power to heal you. I have rarely met a doctor who exhibits such a compassionate demeanor and also is a skillful surgeon. I highly recommend commend Dr. Kachar to anyone needing an orthopedist.
