      Dr. Kapadia has been helping my son once a week for several months with his NAM device. I have never met a more caring doctor. He spends time to explain everything and genuinely cares about my son. My son has a cleft lip and palate. Dr Kapadia has made the entire experience enjoyable. We highly recommend him and the NAM device!

      I cannot say enough good things about Dr. Kapadia. He is kind, caring, knowlegable, patient, and a great listener. He has been treating my infant son with bilateral cleft lip and palate and has been amazing through what could be a very stressful time. Even when I am very frustrated, he always carefully listens and offers help in such a calm manner that we are all calmed. I have felt very confident in his work with my son and would recommend him to anyone!

      Dr. K is awesome! He is helping my little boy, who's just barely two months old, with a NAM appliance for his bi-lateral cleft lip and palate. I am so very glad that he is working with my son on this difficult process and am appreciative how kind and gentle he is with him. Dr. K is very personable, answers all questions thoroughly and is approachable. We are having a very smooth and easy experience during this tricky pre-surgery time. I am very appreciative of this experience being a good one for my baby. It makes it less stressful on all of us.

      Dr. Kapadia is the best orthodontist! He has worked with me for quite sometime and is currently seeing me every six weeks for my braces. He makes sure that all my questions get answered.

      We saw Dr Kapadia this past summer with our 6 yr old daughter. He was very kind and explained everything in a very straight forward manner. We are more than happy to be working with him and his team in regards to the long term treatment and repair of our daughter's teeth and gum line issues due to her cleft palate.

    • Ciara Bainbridge Island, Washington 10.17.11

      We saw Dr. Kapadia for my son's cleft lip and palate. We saw him once a week for months doing the NAM. He was awesome about the whole experience. He was very knowledgeable about the process. He was also very open to our wishes. He takes his job very seriously and is awesome around kids and their parents.
