Insurance listings are subject to change without prior notice. Please call your physician's office or your health or insurance plan to verify coverage information prior to scheduling your visit or procedure. Not all members participating in contracted networks have "in network" access. In network participation may change from time to time without prior notice. Independent providers (which could include, for example only, anesthesiologists, radiologists, pathologists, emergency medicine physicians, advance practice professionals, and other independent providers of health care services) may deliver part of your care, and such providers may be considered out-of-network on your health and insurance plans even if the Facility may be considered in network. If you desire additional information as to the providers who may be involved in providing your care, you can either ask your treating provider (who may know some of the specialists or groups who could be involved) or you can request a list of Facility-based physician groups by calling the following toll free number: (877) 810-0372. This list is updated annually and is subject to change without prior notice.

Great bedside manners and included my daughter in the conversation about the treatment plan. Provided clear instructions and arraigned for same day splinting appointment. Obviously his schedule is busy, hence the only suggestion I'd have is to make same day walk ins available. It took two weeks to be seen after a fractured finger.

Had the same provider for a trigger finger in 2015 or 16 and was very impressed, which led to my decision to reach out to him for the latest issue. He also performed surgery on my wife a few years ago and she is definitely happy with the results. I had the choice of having this done by the VA, but chose Dr Kalina instead.

I felt the dr was very through and I didn't feel rushed. The appointment ran over into lunch and you would've not know that based on the dr's actions. He seemed very knowledgeable on my problems and knew how to explain them where I could relate to what he was talking about. Wet top notch guy in my opinion.
