He was able to answer my questions. He also shared information about exercises that would help me. Reassured me that he would be available if I had any problems to arise.
Nov 22, 2019
This was worst doctor visit I have ever had. kallina did not care about my at all. He said he did not know what I had in my hand/wrist specialist which doesn't not make any sense. According to him I have nothing. He is the worst doctor I have ever encountered. He didn't care, show empathy, this is a provider I would not recommend to my worst enemy. How can a doctor like this call himself even a doctor more less a specialist.

this was the Second time seeing this provider, the first time he said my injuries were the price I pay for being Military. This second time he best solution was no treatment what so ever leaving me with the same problem I came in with. Downplayed my injuries effect on me and acted as if he really can't be bothered. Did not mention my X rays, thought to take recent ones. told of three treatment plans none of which he wanted to do. I plan to seek treatment elsewhere and will request that he be taken off the referral list for Soldiers, in both visits showed a clear disdain for Military.

Great doc, we love him. Have had two surgeries and have recommended him to others. Great care/concern by Dr. K, worth the three hour drive to have him care for me. Wish the survey would color the dots selected, may have answered questions twice...

doctor was pleasant enough, but he was clearly in a rush and didn't have time to listen to my concerns. he Pooh-poohed my fears, completely disregarding them. I suggest he actually LISTEN to his patients.

He asked questions related to why I had requested an appt. with him. He performed a test for nerve sensitivity that had not been done previously. He explained he was using that test because it was the least invasive and painful, but would give him an idea of the condition of the nerves in my fingers.
