I was the first appointment of the morning and it went like clock-work! Dr. Kalantar was very informative, laid out different options for treatment moving forward, and emphasized that the decision was up to me based on my quality of life/ manageability of pain, etc. He listened to my issues and concerns and took time to answer my questions. I'm so glad to have his guidance with my back issues!

Dr. Kalantar is a dying breed. He is at once knowledgeable in his specialty of orthopedics, a top notch surgeon, and he has incredible beside manner. I know he is busy, and yet, I could swear I am his only patient. I came back to see him today, after not seeing him for more than 2 years, and it was like he never forgot me. Dr. Kalantar brings tremendous credit to the Medstar Georgetown family.

He listened to what I had to say, then carefully explained the options available to me. I believe the information he presented to me concerning my severe spinal stenosis problem was accurate. What convinced me I made the right choice in seeing him was that he did not immediately recommend surgery, but suggested I try steroid injections. After he looked at the x-ray taken while I was there he showed them to me and we both agreed that trying the steroid is my first best choice. He then was able to schedule that procedure for tomorrow-and that doctor is on the same floor.

Dr. Kalantar was great, once I finally got to see him. It really irritates me when the office is "running behind ", and your expected to wait and ruin your schedule but if you are 30 minutes late they can't wait. And Heaven forbid if you have something come up and have to cancel with less than 24hrs notice!
