I rarely write reviews on people or products and I have never written a negative review on a doctor but think others deserve a warning. Dr. Calabrese is educated and a well read doctor but misses subtle human emotions and the big picture of the patients life. She takes great pride in a calm environment and if you come in having an emotional day she may think you need medication instead of digging deeper in what is actually going on in your life. I saw her for a couple years and she prescribed me medications I believe in large part due to my abusive ex husbands lies. After years of seeing her she finally admitted that he might be "gas-lighting" me....a term that I had never heard before but is quite popular today. It took her too long to figure this out for someone who is supposedly well trained. Warning: if you go in with any extra energy or emotion she will definitely put you on "something" as she seems to think everyone should talk in a whisper and be calm.

Dr. Lori Calabrese, along with her staff, saved my life this past summer. I have severe treatment resistant depression. I'm diagnosed as Bipolar II, but it's mostly depression now. I fight it, like a WARRIOR, every day of my life. Last July I hit a wall of darkness that last for DAYS... then WEEKS... and it wasn't letting up. I had no quality of life whatsoever. I was ready to check out. Then my fiance and I heard about Dr. Calabrese and her studies on Ketamine treatments for people with treatment resistant depression. I couldn't believe it existed. My own psychiatrist had never mentioned it to me. (NOT COOL) My fiance called to set up an appointment for me. Her staff was amazing and got me in immediately. My fiance and I met with Dr. Calabrese. She was sincere, empathetic and encouraging. Her energy is very peaceful and calming. I told her the desperate state I was in and that she was my last hope. Well, it's 8 months later and I'm still here! IT WORKS- THANK YOU DR CALABRESE!

My experience was a nightmare. I had horrible scary visions during the infusions. The nurse was extremely cold and there was no compassion. A thousand dollars wasted. Both times I felt awful even worse the following few days. I emailed the Dr and she never responded. It took my therapist to call her two days after the infusion to get any answers. She told her for me to stop that this was rare I’m sure it isn’t. She told her that I should have my phychatrist come up with a plan and thst was it

I would like to say I have been with Dr. CALABRESE for roughly 15 to 16 years. Prior to Dr. CALABRESE i tried to work with 4 to 5 Doctors maybe more but no one would be able to get me on the correct medication. It was not until Dr CALABRESE who got me on track. I believe it was my understanding of a GOD that worked through Dr CALABRESE,to get me on the right track. And i am Eternally Grateful. To anyone who reads this we did not hit the answer the first or second or maybe more,but it worked.

Superb! She is up to date, on target and brilliant. Picked up on a diagnosis no one had ever given me, and really went over treatment options with a lot of detail. Super attentive, and super focused. The office is beautiful, she is really smart, personable, and easy to talk to, and she was willing to explain things to my family. I've seen a lot of psychiatrists and APRNs who really didn't know what they were doing. She is someone who thinks out of the box. So thrilling to have hope again!

Unfortunately she is money hungry and will push you treatments that support that hunger. Was more busy with texting than with treating. STAY AWAY.

Went to Dr. C for treatment of depression that hadn't responded to medication. IV ketamine was recommended costing $3000. No other therapy was mentioned, such as TMS which is less costly and covered by insurance. The only face to face time with Dr. C was for the intake. I had no benefit from the ketamine. There was no follow up, no aftercare. She met briefly w/me at the end and suggested I try more sessions at $500 each. Lack of compassion or responsible follow through.

Dr. Calabrese was amazing. She explained in detail how the ketamine treatment would work. She was very compassionate and caring. She answered all of my questions and then some! Staff was equally as wonderful.

When I don't feel well the last thing I want to feel is uncomfortable. That is why seeing Dr. Calabrese for my treatment was the best thing I could have ever done to help me feel well again. She has a soothing and comforting way of talking to her hpatients and explains her treatment plan in detail. She treated the whole person not just my mental health concerns. She is so knowledgeable about the human body as well as the brain. I am so grateful that she has a warm and healing soul.

Dr. Calabrese is a life-saver. She listens to her patients very carefully. She is extremely intelligent and a good decision maker regarding treatment plans. She has a fantastic ability to both soothe & inspire confidence. She never hesitates to take any and all time needed to explain any questions or concerns. Additionally her office staff is phenomenal: discreet, professional, courteous, patient, and very helpful. I am in the medical profession and know firsthand how amazing a doctor she is.

I have suffered from debilitating depression since I was a child, and began treatment at 12/13 years old. I have been on almost every medication and adjunct out there, all with no effect on my symptomatology, but all with numerous side effects. The ketamine treatments I underwent changed my life-- I no longer feel depressed for the first time in almost over a decade, and I actually respond to the lowest dose of an SNRI I was once taking the maximum dose of. Thank you, Dr. Calabrese!!
