Dr Kalmowitz has been my GI Doc for the past six years. Though we meet under less than pleasant circumstances, he is thorough and cautious. I feel very confident in recommending him.

Would never go back to him or this practice again. Spent less than five minutes with me in my first appointment. Said I needed two procedures done immediately and scheduled them for the next week. Then he left the building. After my procedures he spoke to me while I was just waking up from anesthesia then left the building. Never got results or a follow up call to see how I was doing. And then when I called the office they actually suggested I see him again. Highly recommend you see someone else

Dr. Kalmowitz was the most efficient and patient doctor I have yet met. I have seen several gastrointestinal doctors and he surpasses them by far. He patiently listened to everything I had to say, explained what he thought was going on with me and all of this while I asked him question after question. I wish I had him as my doctor a long time ago. I more than highly recommend him. You will not be disappointed.
