    Dr. Kalaba has been the best general doctor I've ever had in my 47 years. I would recommend him to anyone that doesn't have a regular doctor to see. He always talks with the patient about what treatment is best, and helps the patient make the best decisions. If he thinks something needs to be done, then he lets the patient know. If he doesn't think something doesn't need to be done, then he won't make unnecessary treatments, appointments or other doctor referals visits. Dr. Kalaba is a up-front doctor.

    No treatment was necessary. Dr. Kalaba listened attentively to a concern and explained it very well.

    I have never had another doctor who was nearly as expert and considerate as Dr. Kalaba, and I am almost 74 years old.

    Dr. Kalaba is not my regular doctor. He saw me immediately, diagnosed the situation almost immediately, had a 2-pronged approach to healing me, wrote everyhing down so I could not be confused, and was very, very kind and helpful. He did a follow-up call for me at home to check that I had understood everything. And best of all, his instructions were very clear...and very successful!

    Dr. Kalaba is the best. I couldn't ask for a better doctor. I will go wherever he goes so I can remain his patient. He really cares, he really listens, all conversations with him are productive. He always answers my emails on my health in a timely manner. He is the greatest.
