Ratings for Dr. Dominick A. Calabria
Dr malaria is a very good cardiologist. He listens to his patients and does not put you on medication without looking at all the pros and cons. He really cares about his patients and is always available for them. Could not ask for a more knowledgeable and caring doctor
He has discharged a client of mine without reason and without referral to another cardiologist by a letter. He did say he would treat in an emergency for 30 days. But no referral to another Dr. He is being reviewed by the Fla board for patient abandonment. I was in shock that a man/ Dr of this caliber and high ratings could be so insensitive after thinking he was almost the best cardiologist in this area. So, do I recommend him? Absolutely NOT. My pt has atrial fib and has had to be converted at least 5 times in the last year. Abalation is a 50:50 chance due to the part of the heart that needs to be reached. Wouldn't anyone want to be sitting down with their Dr and have him explain why he is discharging them? Not just a letter? The pt has insurance so Dr calabria must feel that he cannot do anymore but is a heartless coward when it comes to helping his pts. He could speak one on one and say he cannot do anymore . "Here are some colleagues that might be of assistance" would be not only nice, but by law mandated. Once again....pt abandonment.
Dr 'C' is perhaps the most personable, likable physician I've ever met. He shows you respect and lacks the arrogance of so many other doctors. He is very popular and busy, but if you can get an appointment you're going to be very pleased. I'd give him the highest rating.
Dr. Calabria is an extremely friendly guy without pretense. He is very willing to take the time to explain things to you. I recently had a stress test and he showed me the nuclear scan pictures and explained what they showed. It was a brief lesson in Anatomy. He has a great sense of humor and a wonderful personality. The only time I had to wait was when he was called to the hospital on an emergency.When he did return to see me he was still in his scrubs.
I am a cardiac nurse and work closely with Dr. Calabria. He is always willing to answer questions, is very concerned about his patients, and returns pages for emergencies promptly. He has excellent bedside manner and is a wonderful man with a compasionate heart. He is one of the best in the county.
