What People Say About Dr. Kalista Engelman, DO

I was not called about my new diagnosis...instead I saw it in an online portal with a letter that I she would prescribe me medications. I never received a call, nor a letter. I called two months later when I was feeling horrible and they apologized saying it was a mistake they never called me. Then they sent me a pamphlet about my disease. Needless to say I found a new doctor who explained in detail my illness and gave me a full examination. Dr. Engelman is friendly, but that's all I can say

I had to find a new RA doctor and I came across Dr Engelman. I was very happy with the location and I really liked her as a doctor. She comes across as a doctor who is listening to me . And also I have decided if i had to change my RA doctor (hopefully not) the other doctors in the group seem very capable

I am a new patient. I called her office and tried to schedule an appointment. I left a message and I received a return call within a few minutes. I explained that I was experiencing a flare up and was in pain. After speaking with Dr. Engelman, the scheduler found an appointment that afternoon. I've never had a better experience. Even at the end of her workday, she took time, gave a real exam, listened to my history with RA, and worked out a same day treatment. Total pro. Awesome staff!

I've suffered with RA for over 10 years now. I started seeing Dr. Engelman a little over a year ago. She has made a huge difference in dealing with RA. She really listens and is always up to date on the newest treatments. I drive 45 minutes to see her and it's well worth it.

She is a very good, she is does not make you wait along time, her staff is very good and a pleasure to work with and she is very through. I have found her to be very intelligent and concerned. I have had an ongoing problem for six years and she is the first doctor who has really made an attempt at finding the issue. I feel blessed to have found her.

Dr. Engelman is wonderful. She's young and very sweet. I am always eager to see her because she listens so well and meets all my needs. Being 19 with arthritis isn't easy but she helps me keep a positive attitude and gives me what I need so I can feel like a normal college student. Not only is Dr. Engelman fantastic, but the office staff is as well. They are always smiling and do great about finding ways to get me an appointment that fits into my busy schedule. I would reccomend her to anyone.

I've been on disability and have had problems for about 25 years. Her answer was to lose weight and exercise 1 hour a day.

My rheumatologist of 25 years recently retired and Dr. ENGLEMAN was selected as his replacement based on my medical condition. She spent well over 30 minutes with me during our first visit. She addressed all my concerns and I achieved everything I intended for that visit.

0.0 Stars. She did not spend time with me to help me. Diagnosis was off the wall WRONG! Would NEVER recommend her. She said I had Fibromyolgia. Uh, NO! I have and STILL HAVE what I went to see her for. She recommended biking, excersises....Serious? I've had both hip and both knee replacements! No, I can't run, bike..swim. I have AVASCULAR NECROSIS! Throughout my body! She didn't have a clue. Even with my scans, history, I gave her everything. Learn bedside manners! Learn what you get paid for!
