My appointment was scheduled with Karen for post-op, however, Karen went home sick so I saw Dr. Kalim. He was professional, compassionate, and very personable. Very pleased with my appointment. I did have to wait a bit, but understood because Karen was out and I am sure appointments had to be shuffled around.
