I'm giving a five star recommendation for the highly professional Dr. And Staff at this Doctors practice. I'm satisfied with my experience with them.
in Enfield Ct |
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.
If you like doctors who are arrogant, rude and condescending then Dr. Kalia is your guy!
