Recently underwent a microdiscectomy performed by Dr. Kalra. Couldn't be happier with the results. His pre-op and post-op explanations/instructions were excellent. Excellent bedside manner.

I was recently referred to Dr. Kalra for my back pain. He took his time to educate me and explain all of my treatment options. I had to have back surgery and am very pleased with the results. I no longer have back pain or leg numbness and have been able to start physical therapy!!!
