I know doctor Kandel for over 20 years. All the members of my family, including me, are her patients. She is a great person and excellent doctor. She is always respectful, patient to my questions and very helpful to all my needs. Recently I relocated to another area that is far away from the Elmhurst clinic but in spite that I prefer to have her as my family doctor.

Everyone was so kind and welcoming. I had tons of anxiety going in, as this was my first visit and I'm frequently anxious I will not be able to communicate, or that I will not be heard and understood. But it was quickly dissipated by how kind and caring everyone there was, and I left feeling grateful to have found such a great clinic and doctor.
