Please read what some of Dr. Kalajian’s patients had to say about their experiences.
“Dr Kalajian and his staff are professional, friendly, respectful and welcoming. I feel so very fortunate to be a patient in the care of Dr Kalajian.”
“I went to see Dr. Kalajian for a growth on my face that was on my right cheek. To my surprise it wasn’t a wart but was confronted with the ‘C’ word. The staff explained that it was not fast spreading or highly invasive and scheduled surgery for the following week. I left comforted that I was in their hands. I had over 40 stitches for two spots that had to be surgically removed but following their post surgery instruction there are no signs of the surgery. A remarkable job by a caring doctor.”
“I have years of experience with basal cell skin cancel and with 4 different dermotologists. Mohs surgery has always been the end result. Although I have had decent care with each one previously, I have to say that the most recent mohs procedure with Dr. Kalajian was by far the most positive experience. The office staff were very caring and Dr. Kalajian was sincere and compassionate concerning my needs. “
“Dr. Kalajian recently performed Mohs and reconstructive surgery on my nose. The Mohs surgery involved going back five times (same day) to remove more cancerous tissue until microscopic analysis of the removed tissue confirmed that all cancer was removed. I am VERY HAPPY with the results of both surgeries!! In addition, because of Dr. Kalajian’s expertise and performance, my scar is hardly visible. I would recommend Dr. Kalajian to anyone needing skin cancer surgery.”
“Would recommend anyone go to see Dr. Kalajian for any skin needs. He treated a squamous cell carcinoma and a basal cell carcinoma on my head and face with great results. It was painless and excellent results, so what more could you ask? Very friendly and obviously a family man. Yahoo!”
