The Doctor himself is smart and educated. The staff, however has got to be the WORST EVER! Do not recommend due to staff incompetence!

I liked the doctor but the staff seemed aggressively competitive. Don't know what's going on there... Also tough to get a hold of someone for a question and the staff didn't bother to explain anything about what to expect for scheduling surgery.

Dr. K is great but trying to get a hold of someone on the phone is near impossible and no option for other. No one is available just leave your number and "I"ll get back to you at "MY" convenience". That's a poor and arrogant attitude. I even tried the new patient number and was on hold for more...more
