Very kind and attentive. He did take the time to listen, and he did explain well. I don't know that my Dad was 100% receptive to Dr. Kallina, but it had nothing to do with Dr. Kallina, and a lot to do with my 92 year old Dad who has been so independent all of his life - accepting that now there are some limitations with his life and what he can do and what he can't do.

This being the first visit to Dr at a month after surgery was a long time to wait to understand the healing and recovery process. Would have been better to see Dr at time of having stiches removed to understand what was to be expected. For whatever reason had to wait over an hour to see Dr. Why did I show up 15 min b/4 time?
