Dr Kalani has been My Cardiologist for Twenty Years. First Dr Kalani is an Outstanding Man & Friend. There is no doubt in My mind that Dr Kalani is the most Outstanding Cardiologist in our West Florida Area, and in the World. Dr Kalani has implanted a pacemaker, and performed two Catheterizations. He is very skilled, intelligent, always on top of the latest Medical Events, and Medications. He is a very caring, compassion Doctor who has outstanding bedside manners, and gives his patient's attentive care during office visits.

This is the best cardiologist I have ever seen. His staff is also the absolute best. They worked with me during a very trying time in my life and I will be this doctor’s patient for life. You simply cannot find a better cardiologist and team.

I had a procedure performed by Dr. Kalani on January 10, 2020.I was apprehensive about the procedure, but must say the overall procedure was essentially painless and the care provided was superb, After the procedure, the results were extremely positive. The pain I experienced before the procedure disappeared. I cannot thank Dr. Kalani enough for his professionalism and quality of care I received.

A compassionate and caring doctor who not only specializes in primary care, but also makes an amazing cardiologist. It's difficult to find efficient and compassionate medical care these days, luckily he provides both and more.

Intelligent, knowledgeable, stays current on latest developments, compassionate, caring, and maintains a sense of humor (which is SO important). He got Mother entered into EECP clinical trials which helped significantly. Got father included in Medicare/Medicaid study to receive a transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR) because he was not a candidate for the open heart procedure - it gave him another 10 years of good life. Now treats my BP & heart valve issues. He is a GREAT person!

Terrific doc and terrific staff. I moved to VA last month, and I miss him already. Dr. Kalani is thorough, attentive, collegial, bright, all in all a pleasure to see. I have 2 qualities I look for in my physicians, and they only have to have 1: a) I like him/her, and b) they are a character. Dr. Kalani scored 2 for 2.

Dr Kalani has been my 91 year old mother physician for 20 years. On our first return visit after a hospital stay he refused to treat her.He refused to address any of our concerns without going to the ER. She came home with home healthcare and physical therapy that both say she's doing wonderful. Keeping her out the hospital is my and my sister's #1 priority. We are taking 24/7 care of her. Refused to treat or advise us other than ER. Next day we get notice he has dropped her as a patient!!!

I saw the dr for my varicose veins. He explained everything in a very informative meeting. He performed the procedure in a very kind and compassionate manner. His office staff is also wonderful. They take the time to talk with you and answer all your question. I now have to have the other leg done and have no problems with it. The results are amazing too! I feel like a new person.

I am a Registered Nurse who has been a patient of Dr Kaplan for 10 years. He has been a consistently excellent provider of high quality cardiology care during that time. Dr Kalani recognized my A-fib and implanted a pacemaker 4 years ago. Referred me to a cardiac surgeon who replaced my aortic valve and has also installed a stent in my RCA with no complications. I feel fine at 76 with no restrictions to my lifestyle other than those associated with normal aging. Thank you Dr Kalani.. L Dratt

I would -- and DO HIGHLY recommend Dr. Kalani to everyone I know. In short, HE GAVE ME MY LIFE BACK! In roughly seven months, he took me from being hospitalized with Congestive Heart Failure and Arrhythmia -- from being a prospect for two separate devices implanted in my chest and possibly a heart transplant - to having a regular heartbeat - no swelling in my feet and legs and lots of energy! Also he does research & stays up to date on the BEST heart treatments. Thank you, Dr. Kalani
