After graduating at the top of his class from medical school in Kansas City, he specialized in Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery at the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center in Dallas.

Dr. Kapadia was very friendly with my son and made him absolutely comfortable. He made the whole experience very easy being playful with my son and at the same time with careful evaluation. We were surprised on how comfortable was myson with the doctor even though he was seeing him for the first time. Definitely recommend Dr. Kapadia. He is amazing!

I will never recommend him. We visited to get ear checked there is a severe infection and wax inside ear. He acted as if he is extracting the wax. When my I and husband wanted have a look at the pieceof wax after extraction he denied and acted as if there is lot of wax he extracted and trashed it. After reaching home we checked inside the ear and the wax was untouched and its still there. Worst experience.

Doctor was not empathetic. Treatment did not result in any positive response. Sounded disoriented and not really sure if he knows what he is doing.

Dr. Kapadia was great! He listened to my concerns, then made his diagnosis, and while giving his recommended course of treatment, explained everything in terms I could understand. He told me what steps he'll recommend (including what tests)based on how I respond to the medication he prescribed. He never made me feel rushed, but didn't chat about weather either. I appreciate him staying on schedule. I was seen within 10 min of my appointment time.

This was my first appointment with Dr. Kapadia after being referred by a friend who highly recommended him for the same problem I have been experiencing. I felt very comfortable and appreciate that he took the time to listen to me,as well as thoroughly explain possible treatment options pending reviewing my different tests results. Unlike many other doctors, he spent time with me and engaged in a conversation without being on a computer the whole time. I didn't fee rushed at all. Would recommended Dr. Kapadia to friends and family.

He took the time to answer allmy questions and does not act snobby or like he was too important to talk to me. I like him.

Very personable yet explain thing where I understood them. I have an addiction to nose spray which is not easy to admit and I was comfortable enough to reveal my deep secret. He helped understand why and is helping work toget better. Nose spray addiction like any other is hard a d shameful, quitting smoking, drinking...they all the same. The drugs the sensation gets a hold of you Dr. Kapadia connected with. It was a blessing.

I feel like part of my issues were barely looked at. I had throat problems which were addressed thoroughly but my left ear pain was ignored. I will be stopping by again to make sure everything is ok with my earand getting the # for the nurse line which I was told I would receive yesterday but didn't. I'm also concerned because no one went over prices for procedures that were requested.
