Well I don't know when anyone will ever ask me to recomend an Anesthesiologist. But if someone ever does, I'll keep you in mind. I never knew I had a choice. Regarding the rest of your questions you need to add a [N/A], as none of them applied to us. But thanks for being there, you put me as rest!!

My care during my recent cataract surgery was excellent. I really can't comment on a office visitation because it didn't apply to my case.

I had no side effects from the anesthesia. he said a breathing tube would be used. I did not even have a sore throat. This was the best experience I have ever had with general anesthesia (I have had general 4 times in the past 10 years).

Dr. Kalava was beyond perfect. I usually don't write reviews however, I came in to the surgical facility with a horrible headache plus I know I was dehydrated from prepping for a colonoscopy. The nurse could not get an IV in me, she then asked Dr. Kalava to see if he could of course he got it the first stick. He started IV fluids and gave me medication for my headache. He constantly checked up on me to see how I was feeling. I TRULLY APPRECIATE YOUR KINDNESS YOU HAVE GREAT Pt. CARE SKILLS.

Your services during my recent colonoscopy at Belleair Surgery Center were very satisfactory. I appreciated that you came by beforehand and introduced yourself and explained the procedure and asked if I had questions. Most of the other questions on the survey don't seem to be applicable to this one experience.

I was amazed at how kind you were and how you listened to me when I told you what a terrible headache I was having. It was such a relief when you gave me meds to get rid of it. I so appreciated you that day. Thanks for being so kind!! Katrina Walton

Dr. Kalava was kind and considerate. It was important for him to make sure I was comfortable with the procedure as it related to the anesthesia.

Very conscientious, professional and thorough MD. Dr Kalava reviewed my medical history to famialarize himself with my health records. Asked some critical questions prior to my surgery. I felt comfident in his ability and high level of skill to perform his MD requirements.

It was a pleasure, I mean quite literally pleasing, to be cared for by Dr. K and Catherine (I think that was the lovely woman's name but as I also met a Crystal and a Coleen before the surgery) in such a way that I didn't even realize I was being cared for. Also kind of freaky that it seems so easy to put someone in such a relaxed and unconscious state.
