my experiences with dr Kallina have been amazing. he has performed multiple procedures on my hands and elbows and each time I saw him in the clinic he was very professional and treated me like a patient and not just a number. we discussed all my options and in the end, I made the decision for surgery. dr Kallina's expertise and knowledge of my situation has made a difference and I am pain free. I recommend Dr Kallina to anybody who has pain in their hands or elbow. he will guide you with the best treatment possible and help you recover from your pain

He respects my wishes to avoid surgery and just take shots. However, I'm rethinking surgery, since the steroid shot he gave me hurt for days. My fault, not his.
