Dr. Ruben Kalra provides integrative and empathetic care to patients in pain. Born and raised in California and trained at Harvard in anesthesiology and pain management, Dr. Kalra is both affable and approachable. He completed an anesthesia and critical care residency at Harvard’s Brigham and Women’s hospital. He also completed a pain management fellowship at Brigham and Women’s Hospital. This program enabled him to learn first-hand from the Brigham’s pioneering pain treatment techniques. Dr. Kalra maintains double board certifications in anesthesiology and pain medicine. He was the Chairman of the Cross-Campus Pain Management Team for the John Muir Walnut Creek & Concord Hospitals from 2010 to 2015 and serves as a board member for the California Society of Interventional Pain Physicians.

Dr. Kalra is an invited pain management expert for Grand Rounds. Dr. Kalra is the treating physician for the California Highway Patrol and hundreds of firefighters and law enforcement in the state of California. Dr. Kalra has an avid interest in mindful meditation and the use of minimally invasive techniques for the relief of neck and back pain. Dr. Kalra speaks Spanish as well as conversational Mandarin Chinese, Italian, Hindi, Bulgarian, and Haitian Creole. He enjoys surfing, barbecuing, yoga, and gardening.
