I have been a patient of Dr. Kalala for 1-1/2 years. He listens to my concerns and takes the time to explain things in a respectful way. When I had trouble paying for a prescription, he and his staff looked into programs to help. They helped get me enrolled with one and now I am able to continue with the medication.

Dr Kalala and the nurses at Allen Digestive are some of the most caring people I know. Dr. Kalala was instrumental in diagnosing a genetic disorder in my family. Without his professionalism and insights more of my family would have succumbed to cancer. He is absolutely everything you want in a doctor. I will always trust him to take care of me and my family for all my digestive health needs.

Dr. Kalala was friendly & easy to understand for the brief time I saw him before & after a colonoscopy. His required prep wasn't the huge gallon of liquid to drink but 2 16oz berry flavored drink. Not bad, but I hope to go to a doctor that prescribes the pill form for the next 10 year colonoscopy. It did take 20 minutes to get called back for my 9 am appointment & approximately another 45 minutes before I was taken to the procedure room.
