    She's nice but you can't trust her. She says one thing and does another. She tries to get you to give symptoms that you don't have so she can up the the level of visit so she can up the charge. In reality it was promised to be a brief visit with minimal charge. When the insurance statement and bill came the charge was twice the amount. She doesn't order test where it is best according to your insurance. The office staff are not efficient and have minimal people skills. No trust in her.

    I have been seeing Dr. Kalaher for 4 years. She is the best at listening to you and taking the time to understand what you are feeling. She asks questions and is always available when needed. She is very thorough when it comes to your care. I recommend her to all my family and friends.

    This doctor takes time with you. Whether its going over test results, discussing symptoms or asking questions about medications, she will sit there with you until you feel comfortable enough with the topic. Whenever tests are required, she takes a "less invasive to more invasive" stance, trying not to order more tests than are necessary. She is very open to changing medications if they're not working or if they become to expensive and she makes herself available via email if you need help.
