100

06/11/2019
Dr. Kalichman is bar far the best Doctor that I've dealt with here in the Tri Cities since I moved here in 1997. He is the only reason I continue to use Kadlec for my health concerns and conditions. I truly appreciate his professionalism, and his sense of humor. I'm grateful that he's a part of your team.

Dr. Kalichman is thorough and provides good communication, but is brief in his responses. I have confidence in his medical knowledge but does not have the best bedside manner. I understand and will continue to see him as needed.

I got the service I required. They only issue I have is that my height is never measured. I am only asked how tall I am. I can only say what it was the last time I was measure which was many years ago. At my age, I suspect it may have altered, but I have no way to know.

100

05/12/2019
Dr. Kalichman is one of the best doctors I've found in the area. He genuinely cares and can relate to my problems. Always listens intently and explains things thoroughly in ways that can be understood by someone not in the medical field. He doesn't downplay my concerns or issues, and is always able to get me help or refer me to a specialist in areas he doesn't cover specifically. I never leave the office feeling like my questions haven't been answered. Wait times are the shortest of any Kadlec office I've been to, and service is better than anywhere else.
100

05/07/2019
