I am very pleased w/my overall medical/health treatment by Dr. Kaliski

The nurse was courteous and respectful, she just does not have a expressive personality. Kind of a "flat" personality if that makes sense. I had her before and she was the same way.

I just started seeing Dr. Kalisky (this was my first visit). I was very happy with my prior primary care doctor, however I was not happy with the system (hospitals, lab, etc) that he was a part of. My wife sees Dr. Kalisky. I had Elmhurst last year and also attended diabetes classes there. I was happy with my experiences with every aspect of Elmhurst and this is why I changed doctors.

the doctor only wanted to talk about blood pressure, not what my health concern is. so my blood pressure went higher as I sat there!!

The staff at Elmhurst Clinic have been my caregivers for many years and I have never had a problem. They have always been there for me and have saved my life on a few occasions. I have no complaints.

Doctor Kaliski is great. I did have to wait for more than a half hour to get into the room.
