I absolutely love Dr.Kalim he has been instrumental in my weight loss journey from the beginning. He is always caring and very concerned about my well being. I am very upset though because of my Highmark insurance I can no longer see him for my care. I don't feel thats right.

I have no bad experiences

I felt I was being talked down to by the doctor who did not know me or my situation. I felt that he was judgemental after only one visit with him.
