I feel very confident in Dr. Kahrilas's knowledge and expertise. He is a very direct person, which can come off as not very warm/welcoming, but he was kind and explained what we needed.

Dr. Kahrilis is excellent in his field. I also have very much enjoyed the interactions he and I have had. He seems very concerned in my well being, offering helpful information. He is an excellent listener. I feel I have his full attention every time (including this visit). On this visit, he was genuinely pleased and happy that my medical condition is now resolved. He is very authentic and very, very enjoyable to interact with.
