Shivika Trivedi Kapadia, MD, MSc

Assistant Professor of Obstetrics and Gynecology

[MUSIC PLAYING] My name is Shivika Trivedi-Kapadia. I go by Dr. Trivedi. I am an obstetrician/gynecologist, and I work in the generalist division.

Ever since I was little, I knew that I wanted to be a doctor. I don't really know where that idea came from. But as I got older and went through my training and went through my schooling, I understood the weight of what it means to be a physician, and truly how much a patient trusts to allow you the privilege to care for someone. And so being able to wake up every morning and know that I'm doing meaningful work to make someone's life better is really something special, and something that has motivated me to continue pursuing this passion.

I just recently moved to Chicago, actually, and I was interviewed all around the city. And the thing that really drew me to the University of Chicago was the people that I met, so the collaborative nature that I experienced when I met the people in my group, my coworkers now, as well as working with the nurses, the PSRs, the medical assistants. Just everyone is so collaborative in how they approach patient care, and really prioritizes making sure that patients are our number one focus.

One of the things that I've really tried to hone in my practice is to make sure that every patient that comes through my door, that I'm treating them the same, and yet, at the same time, individualizing the care that I provide. So if I am trying to explain something that is slightly more complicated, a complicated diagnosis, I make sure that I am explaining it in the same exact way, making sure that I don't have any prejudices or biases coming into this explanation, and making sure that my patient understands where I am coming from, and what I'm trying to explain to them.

I really enjoy performing procedures. I practice the breadth of obstetrics and gynecology. That includes vaginal deliveries, operative deliveries, C-sections, everything in the realm of obstetric care, including low- and high-risk care, as well as in the realm of gynecology. I really enjoy performing outpatient procedures, minor surgeries, as well as major surgeries, anything from hysteroscopy to large abdominal hysterectomies. I enjoy being able to also be the person who provides someone's primary care, and be part of making sure that they are living their healthiest life.

About Our Star Ratings and Comments:

Randomly selected patients are sent patient satisfaction surveys after their visits. We get thousands of survey responses each year. The responses are used to improve patient experience and recognize staff members for the care they provide. Patient survey responses are also used to make star ratings for each provider.

For the star ratings and comments, all feedback on the provider web page is posted as it was given from patients. Comments that do not apply, risk patient privacy, or are not appropriate are not posted. Star ratings and comments come from a number of survey questions. A star rating is not given if a provider only has a small number of survey responses.
