Dr Kalentar is wonderful. He takes time to explain everything and answers all questions. I came in with a big list of written questions prior to surgery and he answered each one clearly. He makes you feel comfortable and confident. Staff was also very kind to me with my numerous calls in making arrangements for my surgery during the Covid times and delays. He has a office in San Dimas and Duarte. They squeezed me in in my initial consult as they were aware of all the delays I experienced at other office due to covid. He’s a surgeon as well and does take time with appointments so there can be wait times. But I went in anticipating the wait so not and issue for me

Dr. Kalantar is a great thyroid surgeon. I had a really huge thyroid goiter and it was causing me a lot of problems. I saw another surgeon first who said it was too big a case for him. Then I saw Dr. Kalantar, and he took care of it no problem. Everything about my surgery experience ended up being really easy. He also has a way of making you feel comforted and explaining stuff in an a way you really understand your situation.

Dr. Kalantar is one of the best ear doctors around. I have seen other ENT doctors, but he is the only one that took the time to explain my complicated condition in a way that I can finally understand it. He is always pleasant, and he really listens. Most importantly, I'm finally experiencing some relief! I would definitely recommend him to anyone looking for an ENT!

One of the office staff on Union is incredibly rude and has no problem putting you on hold while she researches if you have been to the office or not. Since I had been to the office before, I SHOULD have been listed in their computer data, but she could not find any entry -- how strange. She gave me a hard time and kept me on my cell phone in a hot car in a parking lot for 15 minutes until she finally said that she couldn't find me. A real joy to work with. Too bad she works there --
