Great Dr and man

Dr K did surgery on my neck on 2 different ocassions (Fused discs)about 6 years apart (83 & 86). The 1st surgery I also had a bone spur pressing into my spinal cord which he removed. He did a great job and is a great man. He spent time with my wife and explained everything to her and made her feel much better about my surgerys. I recomended him every chance I got.

Best neurosurgeon, best man

Dr. Kandalaft performed a laminectomy with microdiscectomy on L5-S1on my back in 1998. I was 23 years old and he gave me my life back. I wish he was still practicing, I would recommend him without any hesitation. He also accepted what the insurance paid and did not collect my portion. Truly a man worthy of the title of doctor and healer.

The best!

Dr. K performed a lumbar laminectomy on my 18 yrs ago. He also cut my bill in half (the portion not paid by insurance). Today, I'm in excellent health, with no repercussions regarding the back surgery. I understand he's been retired for quite some time now, but this is my chance to pay homage to what I consider to be a GREAT MAN! Thanks Dr. K,
