Dr. Kalim is an excellent doctor. He is always very thoughtful and caring and takes whatever time is needed to make sure all of your questions and concerns are answered.

July 14, 2016

This is the first time I have been to this office. All staff were welcoming, I enjoyed my time with Dr Kalim, he was attentive, offered information and encouraged me to continue with follow up care and preventative health procedures.

July 12, 2016

I would highly recommend their office to anyone.

Dr Kalim was the best and helped me get back to being the best me. I could not have gotten better without the tool he was able to provide to help me not have a future riddled with serious health issues. I would reccommend him and his staff to anyone needing bariatric surgery, or any surgery in the abdomen that can be done with the robotics.

I felt Dr. Kaliem was a great provider. He made me feel everything was going to be ok when I was concerned about doing this surgery. He did testing to make sure I was healthy enough to do this surgery. I highly recommend him to people that have asked me who did my surgery.

dr kalim is not a very friendly guy he has no humor it seems and likes to stick to by the book rules. I like to have humor and in life rules can be bent for diet/exercise depending on other medical issues a person has. He is a good doctor but not a great comfort when patients are nervous etc

The only issue I have is having to wait. When I got my appointment reminder the day before, I was asked to be there 10 minutes early, yet I was still in the waiting room for over 1/2 hour. Then I was in the exam room for some time. It took over an hour for a follow up visit. My time is just as valuable as any other and I don't like to have to wait, particularly when I am at work.
