Dr. Kalman, Optim Healthcare

It was not until his senior year of college that Dr. Arthur Kalman, Optim Healthcare, knew he wanted to become a physician.

When his aunt was diagnosed with renal cell carcinoma, Dr. Kalman, he saw how knowledgeable and passionate her doctors were. “It inspired me to do a 180 degree change in my career choice,” he said. He took the leap and, after graduating, applied to medical school.

It looks like he found his calling. Having been a college athlete who experienced injuries, pain management seemed like the natural choice. “I understand how pain can be a life-changing experience,” Kalman said. “And through a ‘team approach’, using multiple modalities, pain control can be achieved and function restored.”
