Very good experience.

October 09, 2015

All were thoughtful, willing to help, and provide me with the best information possible. The nurse, who did the weigh in was friendly, and made sure you felt relaxed. The doctor listened to your questions, thoughts, and concerns, and explained every topic we discussed in a way I could comprehend it. He was professional, competent, and made sure you were relaxed.

This was the first time I had seen the doctor. He seems to know his business and provide good care for me. I am looking forward to continuing to work with him.

September 01, 2015

From the first appointment with Dr. Kalim including the support groups I have been nothing but impressed with their care and commitment. I have since referred a few of my close friends to his office. I have since stopped receiving care at local facilities and now drive over an hour for care at Dr. Kalim's affiliates.

August 06, 2015

Both of the nurses and the doctor were very helpful, courteous and understanding with my concerns.

July 28, 2015

The doctor did not take into account my health conditions: when he explained to me what exercises to do. I think that he needs to remember my physical limitations.

May 21, 2015

He is a very thorough and kind doctor.
