Exceptional care. Haven't seen this level of patient advocacy by a doctor since my father was in practice. Office staff is extraordinary as well.

Dr Kolachalam is a wonderful Doctor. I had hernia surgery and glad my primary doctor sent me to him. He explained to me what he was going to do and why.
in Detroit, MI |
Dr. Kolachalam's staff was very quick to get me an appointment and schedule my surgery. The Doctor was easy to talk to and answered my questions in advance. My surgery was completed quickly and recovery was easier than I thought.
