Dr. Kalia displayed a I am better than you attitude and made you feel dumb for being there. As I had severe neck pain and cannot turn my head to the right, he walked in and told me twice that he is the Neurosurgeon and will not do anything, then basically walked out of the room. I cannot say for sure, but i would bet he didn't even look at the MRI and just read the report.

Dr. Kalia operated on both myself and my husband. We cannot say enough for his professional and clinical skills. He is a brilliant, kind and compassionate gentleman. His office staff is always very supportive. His conservative approach to very delicate spinal disease is very much appreciated. He took the time to explain the pro’s, con’s and complications of such surgery. Bottom line ….he truly is blessed! We love him!!!!

Last May I had Dr. Kalia operate on my pinch nerve on my back. My left leg was in a lot of pain, I couldn't stand for a long period of time. He was present the entire time of recovery making sure I was feeling okay. He was personable and I felt safe with him doing the surgery because of how knowledgeable he was. I would definitely recommend Dr. Kalia to anyone who has to have surgery.

Dr. Kalia not only saved our father’s life, but became a close friend along the way. Glioblastoma patients are often told to anticipate 6 months to 2 years. I’m happy to share that our father lived a high quality of life for over ten. (For perspective, this happens less than 1% of the time.) There is no question that it was the compassionate and extraordinary care provided by Dr. Kalia which allowed us the extra time with Dad. There are no words to properly express our gratitude.

I had great experience. I was explained everything. I was also told Surgery is always NOT an option. Pain takes time to go away, which I understand, as at times there are no quick fixes , which most people expect. I would recommend Dr Kalia without any hesitation.
