Ratings for Dr. Mary Jo Calarco
This is the worse doctor I ever seen when it comes to doing paperwork. Be expected to wait for ever for her to get it done and also a good chance her or her horrible secretary Karin will fill it out wrong anyways. Karin is one of the rudest secretaries I ever met, it boggles my mind that she still has a job there.
Dr. Calarco has been my family Dr for 28+ years. Great Dr. Can't recommend her enough. Karen on the other hand, can be a handful. I've learned how to deal with her. She has good days and bad like the rest of us. Granted, more bad than good. Just treat her as her position demands, as staff, not medical. Tell her what you need, don't ask her. Pretty simple.
A very pleasant and caring doctor, she is a listener and a highly respected physician. I have personally worked with many of the Drs in this area and she is on the top of the list! The public is upset with, Karen her office staff, Karen is not a nurse nor has any medical education. She is very rude, unprofessional and is unable to present herself well. Very dangerous when office staff gives out the advise that she does in her office position. She should be kept behind the doors, should not be answering the phone and stick to the paper work.
I saw her at the ER (the ER sent me to her office on more then one occasion) her office has always been jam packed. she has always been kind and non judgmental. Friendly (including her staff) (her nurses) She is calm) She never makes you feel stupid (which is more then I can say for women hater (Dr Cressy) She might take awhile to get to you but when she does it's worth it) You can't help but instantly trust her because of her demander!
I'm done trying to get past the guard dog that answers the phone. I couldn't get her to leave a note for the dr regarding a referral after calling each week for 2 mo. All I got were lectures, excuses and attitude. However I have no problem with the real dr in that office.
Dr Calarco has declined in her abilities as a doctor. She has denied my mother referrals and proper testing on several occasions. She criticized other health professionals who had helped my mom's condition, and did not acknowledge how the other treatments had helped. Her receptionist demanded to know information that was confidential. I find the level of care in this community nothing less than disgusting. The people in this town need a decent option for a doctor.
