What People Say About Dr. Daniel Kalbac, MD

Dr. Kalbac is an amazing doctor. The front desk is helpful, and his assistants are equally as great. He treated my right knee for a meniscus tear with a MRI and then some physical therapy, all conveniently onsite at his office. Wait times vary for the office between 10 - 1.5hrs but very rarely is it longer than an hr. I have also been seen in the urgent care after hours clinic they run. SO FAST! Much better than the ER or other urgent cares in the area. Only open M, W, and F but still better! I highly recommend him to family and friends.

Dr Kalbac is a personable doctor but I was disappointed when he could not assist in a full recovery after surgery. I feel a doctor should have many avenues to pursue in order to relieve a patient sign or symptom. Saying " I don't know " shouldn't be an option.

I have seen Dr. Kalbac over the years for three shoulder surgeries and two knee surgeries. I wouldn't hesitate to go back again if I need his services. Great bedside manor and a very friendly staff.

After hurting my right knee, putting all my weight on my other leg and dragging my right foot for a while, I knew that I would need help. I ended up going several times to Dr. Daniel Kalbac's office until I needed meniscus surgery on my right knee. During my visits, Dr. Kalbac and his Physician's Assistant Marco Rocha went out of their way to help me so that I could go back to normal. The surgery went well!! Dr. Sam Ash is another amazing doctor!!! The office staff is very kind and helpful!!!

It has been 9 months since Dr Kalbac operated on my Torn meniscus and some Arithritus. I wish he would have suggested a more conservative approach First (physical therapy,rest,etc) and told me more about what could go wrong. My knee keeps filling with Synovial fluid every 6-8 weeks and I keep having to have it drained.It is actually more painful and problematic now that i have had surgery. Now i am having to consider knee replacement. Staff is helpful and Friendly.

He was not able to read my MRI, I had a shoulder fracture that was left untreated because of his negligence.

I have and will vi tibien ti recommend Dr. Kalbac for his excellent attention to GIanni patient and because he will not even think surgery unless it is absolutely necessary. I have recommended him and his team to friends and coworkers and they will just like me about him. Even those that have undergone surgery with him. Kudos to Dr. Kalbac, his PA Dr. Rocha, his x-Ray specialist and his staff!!! I give them 5++ stars!

Too eager to perform surgery! I was experiencing pain & stiffness in my shoulder & asked if physical therapy could help before jumping ahead to surgery. The Dr. told me that p/t wouldn't help, so I went for a 2nd opinion. Six months with p/t & feeling much better!

I was referred to Dr Kalbac to repair/redo a botched surgery from another physician (I assign that title loosely). From the very first visit to my last follow-up, Dr Kalbac has always made himself available to answer any questions or concerns. From his office staff to his bedside manner, I guarantee - you won't find a more professional and dedicated Physician!
