Medicine to me has always been a calling and my first love and I consider it a great privilege and honor to be able to be provide state of art, timely, personalized, compassionate and comprehensive care to my patients. Knowing and caring for my patients has always and continues to enriches my life and helps me grow a person and I would not trade it for anything else. I believe that really "listening" to my patients allows me to provide the most appropriate and personalized medical care and forge healing relationships.

I decided to join Cone Cancer Center due to exceptional physicians and nurses that call this place home and a responsive administration that is focused on continuously improving the way patients here are cared for.  

Outside of work, I find joy and fulfillment with my family (wife, two boys, mom, sister, dog).  I enjoy traveling and spending time with nature.

Dr Kale is professional, intelligent, and caring. Totally trust him with my care.
August 29, 2021
Dr. Kale was not only a good listener but he was very attentive, an excellent listener and didn't seem frustrated when asked for clarification. He was wonderful, he was not only nice but he was very thorough and patient. He didn't make you feel as though you were a part of an assembly line. I was very Very nervous. A cancer diagnosis is overwhelming within itself but he made you feel at ease and hopeful not unrealistic, but hopeful.

Dr Kale is remarkably patient, thoughtful, and really good at explaining the situation. That is very important to me.
March 08, 2021
Dr. Kale basically told me that my OB wasted my time sending me there, that sterioids would not work (contradicting my OB) and that they could give me platletts in the hosptial if needed. Platletts in the hospital could take hours to work which as any knows, in child labor is not always something you have. He was very very little help and was very wordy/took too long to say all this.
