Dr. Kalia Says:

Hi.  I appreciate all the patient reviews.  They are unsolicited. Of the thousands of patients I see in my practice, just a few write reviews. I'm sorry I've let some of you down. I'll strive to do better. Thank you for your feedback. It will make me a better physician.

A former reviewer said exactly how I feel about this doctor. He is rude, arrogant, very uncaring. He pretty much asked me to leave with the condition without giving any options. Whereas, other physicians have given me other options to try. He also has a way of talking to you like he knows...more

Dr. Kalia is a brilliant brain surgeon. He treated my father beginning to post surgery with utmost respect. I truly can't say enough he is wonderful and hopefully I never need brain surgery but if I ever do he's my fist choice.
