**PATIENTS BEWARE OF THIS DOCTOR!!!** *1st appt with DR Kalya was 2012 for possible arthritis pain in wrist. Dr Kalya told me to follow up again if I experienced more pain in my joints. **2nd appt Dr Kalya in 2017: I felt compelled to write this review about my visit with Dr Kalya. I don't want another patient to feel humiliated, ashamed & embarrassed like I did. At my appt. Dr. Kalya entered the room & she calls me by the wrong patients name. I replied "I apologize but that's not me." She replied, "excuse me" & walked out of the room. I then heard Dr Kalya yelling at the entire office staff about not screening her patients better for 25 minutes. Dr Kalya comes back to my room, puts her head down in her computer & made a comment that I had a spinal surgery. Dr. Kalya turns to me and says in a condescending tone, "What is it your looking for, Opioids?" I said, "I'm sorry but apparently you NEVER EVEN READ MY MEDICAL CHART to see that I CANNOT TAKE Opioids or pain meds. because they make me sick!" I got up to walk out & she followed me to the door saying "What is it you want from me?!!" I stated, "All I wanted was the arthritis testing done." Dr Kalya snapped, "Fine, I'll do the testing and with your insurance you might pay $50.00 but, I CAN'T HELP YOU! The only doctors you need in your circle are your family doctor, your neurologist & a pain management doctor!" When I was leaving the office Dr Kalya said sarcastically, "That I had already had a few surgeries & it's possible I might have Munchausen Syndrome". I felt that was the final insult! Needless to say, I never went back to see her again. Dr Kalya also took it upon herself to contact my family doctor to ask her "What was it I was looking for & why did I come see her." **Please Note: Office girl from Dr Kalya's: Upon my appt. asked me to sign a paper stating: "NO RELEASE FORM GIVEN AT THIS TIME". (*Dr Kalya contacted my doctor anyway with NO RELEASE FORM ON FILE.) *After seeing Dr Kalya I went back to visit my neurosurgeon who assured me that I was being VERY CONSERVATIVE in the care of my severe chronic low pain & that there should be no reason to feel a stigma about having to use a non narcotic drug for my back pain. Also, I have never been referred to a pain management doctor for NON-NARCOTIC Pain Meds.! I came to Dr Kalya for HELP and possibly some answers to the increased pain I was experiencing in my joints. I was judged 1st & treated like a drug addict before she even read my medical chart. I left her office in tears feeling ashamed and embarrassed. I am speaking out about this incident because my medical records speak for themselves and I have never used opioids for my pain. All my surgeries are well documented and with reputable surgeons. I don't want another patient to have this same experience.
