Unprofessional and creepy.

Poor bedside manner and creepy dr. He seemed to be too interested in my personal life and made inappropriate comments about my appearance. More interested in the way I looked than my sinuses. Very unprofessional and I feel sorry for his staff and wife. Will not go back or recommend. Nice office though.

Excellent doctor, nice person!

Meeting Dr. J Kallman was very refreshing and pleasant. In addition to being very knowledgeable and experienced, Dr. Kallman was very nice and personable during my visit, he was interested in understanding my condition and listened to my concerns.Unfortunately, many doctor now days are plain arrogant and talk down to their patients. Dr. Kallman comes across as a very sincere person and I have a great trust in him.

Very happy with results of sinus surgery! Great ears, nose & throat specialist

Dr Kallman performed a life changing sinus surgery for me several years ago (when he was a new doc in town). Prior surgeries with other docs offered me no relief. Dr. Kallman was able to fix my sinus problems from which I suffered for over 12 years! Best of all, my surgery was a smashing success with very minimal discomfort. Not like in the old days where you left the hospital with your nose all packed and in pain. Relatively painless with a very quick recovery. What more could I ask for?I highly recommend his services. Since my personal experience with Dr. Kallman, I have recommended his services to my friends and family. All have been completely satisfied. I have also brought my children to him for ENT services. Three years ago Dr Kallman removed my 13 year olds adenoids at our local surgery center. We went camping later thar same day. He's that good....

I went in for a sinus problem and he tried to sign me up for cosmetic eye surgery!

Doctor's Response

Many patients believe their headaches or facial pain symptoms are due to chronic sinusitis, when, in fact, there is no evidence of sinus disease. Migraines, allergic rhinitis, or atypical facial pain may all mimic sinus disease. These patients classically say things like 'I'm immune to antibiotics' or 'antibiotics don't work.' The reason for a failure of therapy often is that the diagnosis has been wrong. I am doubly board certified in ENT and Facial Plastic Surgery. I found no evidence of sinus disease requiring surgery in this patient. The patient queried me about upper blepharoplasty, and I provided information. I do not 'try to sign up' patients for any surgery -- rather, I prefer to educate patient's about their options and allow them to make informed decisions in a low pressure environment. I'm saddened by this review.
