Date is approximate. The doctor is very hard to understand. He is Indian. Although he speaks English I did not know what he was saying. He was referred to me by my dentist whom is a great guy. The type of surgery I had was for a herniated muscle in my neck. It was an odd, stange problem. He did do good job at the time but the problem is back but much smaller. He had never seen anything like this before. He did explority surgery and said that it was a herniated muscle. His office staff was so rude. The worst was the billing person. Since this was not cosmetic surgery my insurance should have covered it. The biller billed the insurance company the wrong way..the wrong code and it took 2 years for them finally to pay the Doctor. She made it look like it was my fault and would actually hang up on me when I would call. I don't know if she still works there but I do know his wife worked there and she did not help when I complained. Prior to Dr. Kali getting paid his wife had me fill out a form that would give Dr. Kali the right to show my pictures to students since what I had was so weird. In return, I would not have to pay the bill. I told her that I would sign the form but that the insurance owed the money and that I would get the bill paid. Which, in the long run he got my signature and I made sure he got paid. I think I did the right thing. Most people would probably say forget the extra insurance work. All of the problems I had was due to the biller billing the insurance company the wrong way. I have no idea what she told Dr. Kali but he actually sent me a letter stating that he did not want me as a patient. I was shocked and hurt at the treatment. I could not believe how I was treated and how he went along with these unfit employees. What else can I call them? I love all of my doctors and have had plastic surgery since. All of the staff have always been pleasant and nice. Dr. Kali and his staff were a terrible experience. I would not go back to him because of his staff and also his unprofessional behavior towards me. I was treated terribly.
