Gene A. Kallenberg has the following 2 specialties
- Internal Medicine
An internist is a physician who focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of conditions that affect the adult population—both acute and chronic.
These doctors are often who adults see as their primary physicians because they treat a broad range of illnesses that do not require surgical or specialist interventions. They also work to help a patient maintain optimal health in order to prevent the onset of disease.
In addition to treating the common cold and flu, internists also treat chronic diseases like diabetes and heart disease.
- Family Medicine
A family practitioner is a doctor who specializes in caring for people of all ages, at all stages of life. Rather than focusing on the treatment of one disease or patient population, family practitioners are often the doctors that people see for their everyday ailments, like cold and flu or respiratory infections, and health screenings. When necessary, family practitioners will provide referrals for conditions that require the expertise of another specialist.
The doctors may also provide physicals, inoculations, prenatal care, treat chronic diseases, like diabetes and asthma, and provide advice on disease prevention.

Initially I liked dr k but after needing some tests I learned that ucsd charges an unbelievable amount for "care". The same services are offered for a fraction of the cost at a new highly recommended specialist I found at Scripps. Meanwhile, ucsd gives you 12 mo to pay in full, then sends your account to collections regardless of if you've been making payments or not. When I told dr k this, he told me to be greatful my results came back showing I was in good health and that it could have been worse. I guess he's never had to worry about money before...
