“I had my first appointment with Dr Kallis via zoom earlier this week and I found him to be empathetic and he listened to all my problems and responded in a way that was extremely comforting. He was attentive to my fears and needs and he was reassuring without giving false hope. I feel I am in good hands and I am hoping following scans and blood tests he will be able to help me.“
