"Dr. Kalishman is by far the most incredible physician I’ve been to, and trust me I’ve been to a lot. It’s so hard to find doctors that are not only great at what they do but also have great bedside manner and actually care about you and your wellbeing. I’ve been all over the world for several health issues i have and never felt like i mattered. But on my first visit with her, she took her time to listen and get a thorough history on me to come up with the best solution, and didn’t rush me out the door. I’ve recommended several people to her now and will continue to do so. I wish I could give her an infinite amount of stars! Not only is she amazing but Tiana, the nurse is also so great and personable. And Patty, the front desk receptionist, is exactly the type of person you want to get on the phone whenever you need something. She never makes you feel like you’re a bother and will do everything she can to help. Go to her, I promise you’ll never be disappointed!"
