Patient Comments (8)
Dr. Kolachalam was highly recommended by my primary care physician to repair an inguinal hernia. My initial appointment was scheduled quickly, Although I was dismayed at the wait time at the Southfield office location, a surgical date was promptly scheduled. Dr. Kolachalam was very informative and reassuring prior to and after surgery. My post-surgical visit at the Livonia office was surprisingly quick: With no complications from surgery, I was seen by the doctor and on my way home in 15 min.

Dr. Kolachalam came highly recommended from my primary care doctor and he lived up to the reputation. He quickly assesed my situation, discussed the options and completed my surgery flawlessly. I had very little discomfort due to the pre-surgery precautions he took and I am very satisfied with my healing progress.
