Caring physician and surgeon

I was very satisfied with my experience with Dr. Kolachalam. Even though I needed somewhat urgent surgical care, he took the time to meet with me before the surgery to discuss the procedure and answer all my questions. Despite some complications that he encountered during the surgery, the procedure and outcome were successful. My surgery was done as a minimally invasive procedure, and my recovery proceeded as he told me it would. There was a minimum of discomfort after the surgery and he made sure I was provided with a suitable pain-management prescription. I was surprised at how quickly I recovered. My follow-up visit to his office was equally satisfying. The waiting time at his office was minimal. We reviewed the surgery, follow-up care was discussed and he was again helpful in answering any questions I had. I would not hesitate to see him for any future care. I recommend his services to others needing general surgery.

My first visit

I had a wonderful experience with Dr.Kolachalam and his staff. He was warm and caring, he took the time to explain my condition thoroughly. I was able to prepare easily for my first visit to his office using his just his website. His new re-vamped website was extremely helpful to me before and after my procedure. Thank you! I would highly recommend Dr. Kolachalam when choosing your general surgeon!

Wonderful Doctor

I recommend Dr. Kolachalam. I went to emergency and was diagnosis with a gall bladder problem. I met Dr. Kolachalam in my hospital room. He was the kindest person I have ever met. He was caring and knowledgeable about what was wrong with me. The surgery went fine and my follow-up care was great!

Great at Laparoscopic

I had a ruptured appendix and was warned by other medical consults that my surgery would start as laparoscopic, but probably not finish as such. Dr Kolachalam did it all laparoscopically .. even though my surgery took almost 2.5 hours. I would highly recommend him. His added hours made my recovery a couple weeks instead of months.
