Patient Comments (3)

I never felt rushed, he always answered questions clearly. I had zero pain after my surgery (vsg and gallbladder). Dr. Kalim made sure I was physically ready to go home before I was discharged.

Hated him. No bed side manor. He messed up my gallbladder surgery so bad.

Almost killed me. Was in a coma for a month after his handy work, just found out he twisted my stomach causing the whole mess. Still trying to pick up the piece of my life, been sick for over a year now, and 18 surgeries to fix what he did.
