Dr. Kalow is truly an amazing pediatrician! I saw Dr. Kalow until I was 16 years old, as did my brother. Of course when I had my own children I didn't hesitate when making Dr. kalow their pedi as well. He is caring, trustworthy, a great listener and he is wonderful with my daughters. He explains everything thoroughly, he is non-judgemental, and in 30+ years he has never steered us wrong! I recommend him to anyone in the market for a pediatrician.
