What Clients are Saying

I am very pleased with my result I was experiencing severe depression . Dr Kalava and Briana helped me thru and I’m now back to exercising and loving life again. I highly recommend the office they are so kind and understanding. Very professional and very nice office


Great physician, service and the experience. Physician was able to relieve my pain in just one visit


If you are looking for a breakthrough from your depression, see Dr. Kalava. Excellent care and beautiful office space. The staff is caring and attentive and they always follow up on you after your visits. It is worth every penny. I would recommend this clinic to everyone.


Dr. Kalava is very easy to talk to, takes time to go over everything needed and listens to all concerns as well as answering questions. Briana is also very helpful! Definitely recommend.


Prior to Dr. Kalava opening up practice I had tried the other place in town (don’t go there) and had been traveling out-of-state for ketamine treatments for my PTSD/anxiety/depression. I was relieved to find a local provider that had a clean, well maintained office, with a provider that monitors my vitals & knows emergency interventions, if needed (after all, he IS an anesthesiologist). Dr. Kalava is a wonderful & caring provider with a great skill set; I always feel safe. If you’ve ever had a treatment you’ll understand how important that feeling is to a successful outcome. I always felt he and his assistant Briana had my back if I had a problem or concern during or after treatment. They were always accessible. Thank you Dr. Kalava for following the science that hasn’t caught up with mainstream medicine yet. I truly felt desperate when I walked into his office. I’m doing well today, taking fewer medications & feel like there is a future again.


Dr. Kalava and Briana at the Breakthru clinic in Tampa represent a dedication to help patients heal. Treatments offered have long since been proven to be safe, effective and administered as described with predictable results. Unlike other options for treatment resistant depressive disorder, you can begin healing from day one with out disruption or imposition to lifestyle and without noticeable changes others might question.


The clinic is clean and relaxing. The staff are amazing and the wait time is minimal. I have even arrived early and managed to get in before my appointment time.


Doctor Arun Kalava is an amazing person and smart. The staff is absolutely professional, responsible and respectful. They understand your situation and give you security. My treatment is helping a lot and I actually had a procedure for stimrouter because a nerve damage; the results and really incredible and my pain is minimal. I recommend 100%


I had extreme pain in my foot. Dr. Kalava did 2 nerve blocks that have lessened my pain a lot. I have recommended him to others.

Kevin, St. Petersburg, FL

I have been dealing with my health situation now for more than 10 years this is the first time that an anesthesiologist contacted me the day before my procedure absolutely outstanding service was off the charts could not have been happier thank you.

Paul, Largo, FL

Dr. Kalava understood that I had a hearing problem and was very careful to enunciate his questions and answers very clearly in order for me to understand.

Herbert in Dunedin, FL

My Ketamine treatments have thus far out performed other treatments and inspired me to enjoy my days with enthusiasm. I have been many times more physically active and productive with domestic projects all the while planning more future activities

Carl, Tampa, FL

Very good with people who have been in severe pain for a very long time. It takes a certain type of doc to be able to engage well with a person like this. Trust me, I’ve been to too many to count. I usually leave feeling helpless, and I leave Dr. Kalava with hope.

Carollinn, Tampa, FL

He was great. Took the time to listen to me and explained in detail everything he was going to do. Would highly recommended him!
