I wish I would have read the review here before visiting Dr. Kaback. She lacks empathy; is chronically late; she is condescending; she doesn’t welcome any questions about your health, although she may ask is you do have a question, but the will abruptly cut you off mid-question; she lacks professionalism and isn’t even thorough, as she lacked a memory of why I even came to see her in the first place. I have the ultimate respect for doctors, but her arrogance and lack of kindness are horrible.

Dr. Elizabeth Kaback is not the doctor you want to see unless you want to feel horrible about yourself, belittled, yelled at and starred down as if you have no idea what you are talking about when you try to discuss your concerns. I wish I didn't even have to give her one start to write this review. I just want to encourage people to seek treatment from other doctors. There are plenty at Scripps that will consider your feelings. Just not HER.
