He is very knowledgable. And caring. Don't know how I would have made it through all the testing and scares without his knowledge and support. I would highly recommend him.

I had a colonoscopy and EGD with Dr. Kalala and was very satisfied with his services. I had absolutely no problems after each procedure. Results from each procedure only took a couple of days. I have already recommended Dr. Kalala to my family and friends.

Cedar Falls, IA |
Dr. Kalala was fantastic. I had to wait for the appointment but it was worth it. He made me feel like he really cared about me. I would recommend him to anyone. Great job Doc.
in Waterloo, IA |
Had a polyp in me for a year because of new heart stents advised not to be off of Plavix. Dr Kalala removed the polyp while I was on Plavix and aspirin both blood thinners. I was relieved and happy with the out come encountered no problems and it's been five weeks since the polyp removal. I would recommend Dr Kalala to anyone! He went above a beyond calling me several times during the year and scheduling the procedure.
in Cedar Falls, IA |
When my father had serious medical problems this spring, Dr. Kalala was helpful, knowledgeable and compassionate. Through several follow-up visits since then, he has continued to be so and has been very understanding of my father's reticence regarding certain procedures and their inherent risks, due to my father's circumstances. He did not try to push unnecessary procedures or medication and has been respectful of both my father's wishes and those of the family.
in Independence, IA |
The only thing he knows how to say is You're like my family. I thought at first he might be the first caring Gastro doctor I had met, I was sadly mistaken. After finding out information was being withheld from me, him saying I should just be happy I don't have cancer and the fact that he would continually dismiss my symptoms and the severity. He also refuses to give you an official diagnosis when he had one in front of him from Mayo Clinic. I would't recommend anyone I care about to see him.
in Waterloo, IA |
Did not communicate well at all about my procedure, then changed statements (later when questioned) about how procedure outcome was.
in Cedar falls, iowa |
The nicest, caring, most compassionate Dr I have ever met. Spends time listening to you and answering your questions in a kind way. The best dr!
