Ratings for Dr. Joan Hazel Calinisan
I saw Dr. Calinisan once for an annual exam and she was professional and pleasant, answered my questions, etc. However, I called this week to be seen for a concern (not emergency but needs to be looked at) and was told there are no appointments until September!!! I could try coming in on her on call day and MIGHT be seen if she isn't called out to a delivery. I understand deliveries take priority but is this seriously the best you can offer your patients with urgent concerns??? I never got a call back to confirm that "maybe seen" appointment. Not acceptable! Called my former ob/gyn in San Diego and got an appt in two days that I will drive an hour to . That's called good patient care!
I met Dr. Calinisan when I was in the ER for early delivery - Dr.C was the OB on that shift. She was amazing and took great care of me. I remembered her name when I became pregancy w/my 2nd and I assinged her as my OB. She delivered my 2nd and 3rd child. She was awesome as was her MA. Unfortunatley with OB's they have deliveries at hospitals that don't always go as planned so being punctual can be diffucult. She and her staff were so great, I didn't mind the wait. I would highly recommend her to anyone in the area needing a good OB.
They'll waste your time and money! Waited 90min for the doctor to tell me to come back in 2weeks. They did NOTHING to help, offered no advice, and were useless as medical healthcare providers. I do NOT recommend using them as an OB or Gyn provider.
I can not say enough good about Dr. Calinisan. She is the best Ob/GYN I have ever seen. I looked for so long for a good OB/Gyn. I started to think one didn't exsist and then I found Dr. C. I am not joking when I say that I don't even want to move because I want to stay living near Dr. C. Long story short, I had 2 miscarriages and then finally got pregnant by surprise. I was so affraid of another miscarriage, but Dr. C and her wonderful nurse Teresa reassured me with so much confidence that I would be fine and sure enough on July 16, 2010 Dr. C delivered my son by c-section. I don't know how they knew this baby would make it, but they did. They will never know how much thye did for me. My C-section went so smoothly too. I still can't believe how great of a job Dr. C did. Be assured that if you do go to see Dr. C you will not be dissapointed. You might get a little wait in the lobby, but take that as a sign of how good she is that eveyone wants to see her. God Bless Dr. C and Teresa!
I am pregnant with my second child and Dr. Calinisan has been my health care provider for both. She is an excellent doctor, very caring and genuine, and goes above and beyond to help her patients. With my first child, she even came in to deliver my son when she wasn't on call, just because I asked her to (I was half-kidding when I asked, but to my surprise she agreed to!) Her nurse, Teresa, is also excellent. She helped me resolve a problem between my insurance and the lab that did my bloodwork. I highly recommend Dr. Calinisan!
Absolutely wonderful! her nurse is also fabulous! I drive 45 minutes to see her for my visits. She's professional and full of energy and very knowledgeable. Her husband is a dentist and is great as well, good with kids and gentle handed. Would totally recommend them both.
I've had a fabulous experience with Dr. Calinisan and her medical assistant, Teresa. They have held my hand through my pregnancy and have answered all of my questions with consideration and genuine concern. She is a very busy doctor, which is reflected in the number of patients she sees, and is a reflection on her as a doctor by how many people want to hvae her. My advice...establish a relationship with her and Teresa and you will have a fabulous experience, no matter what you are seeing her for. She has promised she will be there to deliver my baby no matter what, which is above and beyond the call of duty. I cannot give her enough praise!
