    Just awful!!! Cold, short and doesn't properly evaluate before making decisions. He has no passion for what he does. Do yourself a favor and find a better doctor!!

    I was an accident 16 years ago and you saved my foot. I feel blessed to have had Dr. Kalb as my surgeon. My life is better because of his care and dedication to his patients. I am an active business owner today, and stand for 8 hour days. The gravel truck almost took my life and you gave me the ability to have a great life. Thank you. Sheila Rae Olauson

    Dr Kalb is an idiot! I looked him up because I wanted to see if he was even a real doctor. He evaluated me for a spine injury. He had me turn my head left to right and had me squeeze an instrament and said we were done and walked out of the room. I wouldn't let this guy touch me ever! Do some research and find yourself a real doctor. I think he hates his job

    Our family had a traumatic experience with our autistic son (young teen) which required repair of an open femur fracture. I am an RN (mom) and Dr. Kalb took every possible step to make his injury/surgery/recovery as seamless as possible meeting the various needs of our son and family. My son's leg recovered at 110%..no infection, completing 5k runs, no signs of pain or gait imbalances. In addition, he personally contacted us to provide a colleagues name for autism services.Much appreciation!

    Worst place I have ever been. I have never had issues with other doctors and staff. The majority of STAFF is awful, very rude and uncaring. Partly I would guess as Dr. Kalb has WAY too many patients. Records are screwed up by staff often, Dr. Kalb doesn't know what is going on as he asks the same questions prior visit, doesn't know what tests he has already done, test results not in files, etc....It is a complete unorganized and unprofessional place. Dr. yells at staff in front of patients

    Dr. Kalb has done 3 surgeries on me 1 on my husband, 1 on my son and we couldn't be happier with him. His surgical skills are the best & I wouldn't trust my family to no one else!!!!!
