      I have been in Dr Kalter's practice for 8 yrs. He's an outstanding MD and I have complete confidence in his recommendations. I have a very rare form of leukemia but that's hardly an impediment to his work. When I have a bizarre lab blood workup, he quickly sorts out the important from the nits. If I have a downturn, I know he'll provide me the attention I need. Don

      Don't see Dr. Kalter if diagnosed with Amayloidosis. He doesn't know how to treat the disease and gets offended when questioned. It's because he doesn't know answers but doesn't want to tell you that. Instead, he'd rather let your loved one die. Worst doctor i've ever come across in my life.

      Dr Kalter has been very helpful and patient . He has answered my questions and helped me understand my cancer. His staff is very caring and knowledgeable. Everyone has been so supportive . It is not easy to have cancer as a companion in my life but I feel hopeful and confident with Dr. Kalter and his staff. Sometimes I have to wait but its not a problem and I know that when my turn comes I wlll get the time I need with the doctor. Thank you all for being there. Donna K.

      I called Dr. Kalter several times and could only the answering machine for his appointment secretary. I left a message and ask to call me back and they never did. I was recomended by my family doctor to Dr. Kalter but he seems to busy to get new patinets. I am also writing this so Dr. Kalter know how bad his secretary system works. They never calls back.
