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.

I really like Dr. Kahrilis. He ALWAYS has time to truly listen to me. I feel I have 100% of his attention on each and very visit. He listens carefully, understands "where I'm coming from" and helps me determine the best course of treatment of my chronic condition. I feel that he cares about me as a person and has my best interest at heart. In addition, I hold him in very high regard. He researches and publishes extensively and I feel that he is one of the foremost doctors in his speciality. I always leave a visit with Dr. Kahrilis feeling good, heard and more hopeful. He has a good sense of humor and it's always a pleasure to see him.
