Met him at Sibley Hospital following surgery for a leg blood clot. By following his advice and treatment, I've had no clot reoccurrences in almost five years. Dr. Kalil stays well informed and current in drug therapies and treatments. He is attentive and thorough during every office visit. I highly recommend him.
Dr. Kalil is a sales man once all he wants is for you to start chemo. After you start chemo he wont visit you when you're in the hospital even after his office tells you to go to the ER that he is there and has been paged. Other physicians in the practice also state that Dr Kalil wont let them treat his patients. If you have an emergency and he is not on call you're out of luck. According to his staff when Dr. Kalil makes changes to your chemo schedule you're responsible to call the staff and let them know. The only explanation for this is that the Dr doesn't document in charts well and there is a major divide in his office. in less then a month I have seen 2 nurses leave. Be warned!
I was diagnosed with cancer in 2002, frightened, devastated not knowing what to suspect. Being the rock of my family I had no one to lean on. Dr. Kalil was assigned as my oncologist in clinical trials at Franklin Square. He is not only an excellent doctor but a caring, warm and supportive person. I miss you!
