I made the appointment on Zocdoc, but the office said that I did not make the appointment with them because that office did not use Zocdoc even though the address and name was correct on it.

I arrived for my appt 15 minutes early. When I got there the receptionist was arguing with her boyfriend. She told me to call the police but then told me not to call the police. She then pushed him out thedoor, locked it and said not to let him in. It was all very bizarre. The Dr was 40 minutes late in getting to the office. He didn't seem really concerned about my health but said someone would call me to schedule head CT. That was 5 days ago. I called them to see what the hold up was. I could barely understand what the receptionist was saying. She said she would call me back in half hour. That was 24 hours ago. Clearly this doctor and his staff have no regards for a patient's health. I ended up in the ER where they took better care of me.

The wait time was right at an hour, which is a tad longer than it really should be. 30 minutes is somewhat reasonable. Dr. David Calimag was wonderful. He was extremely personable and made the patient feel comfortable. He explained thingsvery clearly and was very good at trying to understand our situation. He is one of the best specialist we've seen in the Chicago area!

He was very rude and condescending. The front desk person was extremely nervous the whole time and disorganized. Everything in the office was old school, which would have been fine if it worked out for them but they rescheduled my appointmentand then when I got there it seemed like they rescheduled 4 other people for the same time. Would never come back again.

Dr. Calimag's staff is really good about communicating appointment information. He has two convenient locations (I saw him at both), and they fit you in quickly when you have a problem. The Dr. himself is very personable and calm. When Icame to him with some suspicious symptoms, he ordered an MRI for me, knowing my family's history. I saw him in office to discuss the MRI at the St. Anthony location. He went above and beyond by showing me the MRI images on the computer and explaining them to me (even though everything came back normal luckily) because he knows of my interest in medicine. Great bedside manner & expertise. Thank you, Dr.!

Great doctor! Took a moment to answer all of my questions. Then he mentioned since he had a moment, he wanted to show me little more about my diagnosis in the encyclopedia. Thought it was nice of him since I am used to doctors just brushing me of.

After seeing this doctor earlier today, I've replayed my visit over again in my head and discussed my concerns with family. My conclusion, I will not be going back for the follow up visit. The office had called me 45 minutesbefore my appointment and said they were ahead of schedule. She said they could see me right away if I could get there sooner. After my appointment, I realized that he must have been in a hurry to go somewhere. We walked out of his office at the same time. Without going into every detail of my appointment... Here are the reasons why I wouldn't recommend this doctor. - He was rude. I am pretty sure he was mocking me the whole appointment. Also, when his cell phone rang during our conversation, he just cut me off... Didn't even say "excuse me" and just started talking on his phone. When he got off he told me "see, I'm a busy man" Wasn't sure if he was implying I was wasting his time. - I was told by another physician to consult with a neurologist regarding some issues I'm having. Dr. Calimag didn't even listen to what I had to say, he was completely dismissive. I didn't even give him all of the information about my medical history, he was very rushed. - "Diagnosed" me with a condition that I already had been diagnosed with by my referring doctor. As mentioned above, he didn't not take the time to listen to all of the information or even why my other doctor referred me there. Overall, I was in his exam room less than 20 minutes. This included examination, writing a prescription, his random phone call and getting all of my medical history. He cut me off on numerous occasions and overall just made me feel like I was wasting his time. I like to try and give everyone the benefit of the doubt, but I left this appointment feeling very slighted. Maybe I caught him on a bad day, we all have them... But, I refuse to see a doctor that doesn't take time to listen to me. I guess there's a reason why I was able to get an appointment so quickly and why he had so many openings. I personally will not return to Dr. Calimag for medical care. If his behavior today is any indication of his bedside manner, I would highly recommend looking for another doctor. Hopefully no one else has the same experience that I had.
