Dr Kalb has been a huge reason for the quality of my skin care for nearly 3 decades. I not only consider him by Dr but family. He has always given me the best recommendation for my medical needs. He is always at the front of the line on new medicines and procedures. I would recommend him to everyone with dermatology issues.

Excellent, this year I saw DrKalb, as usual a good exam, he explains everything and gives an information sheet, helpful because sometimes it’s too much to easily absorb and understand. Exceptional staff, very efficient and pleasant. A couple of years ago I had the best exam EVER from one of the PAs-I don’t think there was an inch of my body he missed!

The exam was very thorough by the Doctor and his staff. More importantly, Dr. Kalb always takes the time to explain what he is looking for and what he has found. I always leave his office confident that everything is alright for another year. I’m sure I would feel the same way if he discovered any issues and had to prescribe a course of action. One last thing, and don’t laugh, but the office is always kept warm (as are the Doc’s hands!). No small consideration on a Buffalo winter day!

Spent less than 6 min. w/ me; his "review" of my condition seems to have been the time it took him to read, in his office, a single sheet of paper provided to briefly describe "your" concerns. His intern spent the majority of the time apologizing for him & relaying messages. He actually poked a painful lesion while repeating, " This is a RASH." He ignored all of my acute symptoms and prescribed diagnostic treatment which requires at least 6 weeks to maybe see results, ignoring all acute symptoms

Just found this site.. This incident was 2 years ago, but I never even got the courtesy of a call from Dr. Kalb even after reporting the events that lead to cellilitus then my hospitalization, shortly after a wart was removed. I asked if it should be covered, as I had old boots on. He said " no need", but I had factors that made me more susceptible to an infection, if my med record was reviewed. Summary sent to me never stated my request for a bandaid. I have entire encounter documented 2015

I saw Dr Kalb for the first time a week ago. The entire staff (from receptionist to nurse as well as Dr. Kalb) was courteous , informative and professional. Every part of the visit was thoroughly explained and the follow up was timely. I'd definitely recommend him.

Suffered with an embarassing skin condition my entire life- Dr Kalb is the only Doctor who tried something unconventional when everything conventional didn't work. I had been to 3 different dermatologist prior and all fell flat. Dr Kalb is truly the best in WNY!
