Very caring and compassionate. Dr. Calabrese is wonderful. She listens to you, remembered progress from last visit and made me feel like I was her only patient. Better yet, her treatment plan she put me on seems to be working! I can't say enough great things about her. Great physician and person!

Dr. Calabrese was excellent! My mom and I met her for a potential serious concern I had. she was extremely patient, understanding and knowledgeable. We then stayed in contact via MyChart for a few days as I was receiving lab results back. she was always very quick to respond and explained everything in detail. highly recommend Dr. Calabrese!

Dr. Calabrese was very concerned over my health/reason for coming to the Clinic. She was excellent in explaining what tests needed to be done, why, and what the attack will be. I've never had a dr. so upbeat, caring, asking about my medical history, how I feel, when are their issues, etc. I'm very impressed and lucky to have had her examine me. THEN the personal phone call made to me to discuss my xrays and blood tests--she was wonderful. What a lucky patient I am to have her as my dr. WOW!!!

Dr. Calabrese was the best thing that has happened to me. I can't say how pleased I am with the appointment I had. She listened to me and educated me on my health. I am so glad she is now my Rhuemotologist.

Dr. Calabrese is great! She is always receptive to what I tell her and takes the course of action that is right for me. She responds very quickly on MyChart and she's probably one of the best doctors I've seen.

Dr Calabrese has been excellent in her attention to my care, considering my wishes in choosing the path of my care and communicating with me when I have concerns.

Reviewed on Apr 26, 2018

In terms of overall effort at listening to my concerns, explaining the medical facts and in general taking ownership of my care, Dr Calabrese is undoubtedly the best person I have dealt with at the Clinic. Her efforts at maintaining consistent, timely and efficient communications with me have been beyond what I would have expected. I truly believe that Dr Calabrese sees me as a person first and not just another patient. I cannot give her a high enough rating!
