I was recommended to go to Dr. Kalischer by my internist after my former cardiologist retired. I had been told years before that I had a silent heart attack and keep going for checkups. Dr. Kalischer explained my echo and told me my heart was strong and there was no evidence of a heart attack. The tests were done promptly and results were given right away. I also appreciated that the doctor administered the stress test not a technician . I would definitely recommend him . My only regret is that I did not come to him sooner .

I wanted to show my appreciation to Dr. Kalischer, as he has been my mother in law's cardiologist over the past 5 years. She is an elderly woman and she becomes very nervous if she notices any change in her condition. She calls his office frequently and Dr. Kalischer will also call her back that same day. I understand he is busy during regular business hours, but he will also find time later on to call her and calm her down as usually her symptoms do not represent any worsening of her cardiac status. If he is not sure, she will be given an appointment to see him the following day or so as not to miss any potential problem. I highly recommend him for his conscientious care and attention.

The doctor, staff & employees were all up to date well informed professionals, thorough, well mannered, friendly, & they left me wondering why weren't all health facilities as good as this one. I felt I was in the best of hands & would highly recommend it to friends & family.

He billed false diagnosis which on her permanent record & has to pay additional $$ for her insurance premium. Always did unnecessary tests for the $$. Gave her unnecessary meds which made her always dizzy dropped her BP. Was nasty to her when asked him questions. Bills insurance at high levels even if he saw her a week later for follow up. Needs to retire!

After going to a number of useless Cardiologists, I found Dr. Kalischer. He was always willing to listen to my concerns and examine me carefully. He spends so much time with each patient and is so thorough. His office staff is always pleasant and helpful.

Dr. Kalischer is the only cardiologist I have seen so I can only rate my answers by comparing my experience at his office with that of other doctors. The technicians who do the various types of testing in your office are probably the least friendly I have ever encountered. During my last visit I felt as if I was just another item to scratch off on their workload for the day.
