      Dr. Kalra is a very professional, patient, and a good listening doctor. He takes your concerns and addresses them every time. He makes recommendations for treatments that will help in the management of your pain. If for any reason it doesn't help he encourages you to try different procedures to find one that does. I like having options to address my personal medical problems. I would definitely recommend his practice to anyone seeking help with pain management.

      Why Does Experience Matter?

      Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.
