Dr. Francisco J Calimano has the following 2 specialties

  • Pulmonary Disease

    A pulmonologist is a physician who specializes in the diagnosis and treatment of conditions related to the lungs and respiratory tract.
    These specialists are similar to critical care specialists in that their patients often require mechanical ventilation to assist their breathing.
    Pulmonologists diagnose and treat patients with conditions such as asthma, cystic fibrosis, asbestosis, pulmonary fibrosis, lung cancer, COPD, and emphysema. Exposure and inhalation of certain toxic substances may also warrant the services of a pulmonologist.
    Some of the tools and tests pulmonologists use to diagnose a patient are a stethoscope in order to listen for abnormal breathing sounds, chest X-rays, CT scans, blood tests, bronchoscopy, and polysomnography.

  • Internal Medicine

    An internist is a physician who focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of conditions that affect the adult population—both acute and chronic.
    These doctors are often who adults see as their primary physicians because they treat a broad range of illnesses that do not require surgical or specialist interventions. They also work to help a patient maintain optimal health in order to prevent the onset of disease.
    In addition to treating the common cold and flu, internists also treat chronic diseases like diabetes and heart disease.

I waited 1 hour and 40 minutes and was never seen by any medicl specialist. Not event a 'we are sorry' . Walked out! All they do is prescribe extreme amounts of drugs. On my first visit I was not examined by the Physician, and the second visit I was scheduled to see and RN - why? Don't have the slightest clue, since no one ever talked to me. I was put in a room with one chair and a computer on a pretend desk. Empty and left there. I thought they had forgetten, went out to the bathroom and left myself be seen by them. Not even then they had the dignity to EXCUSE THEMSELVES> POOR POOR SERVICE>

Worst Cystic Fibrosis Doctor ever!!!!!!!!

My brother passed away last year due to Dr. Calimano's "No Care Policy" to CF patients!!!!!! I spent 2 months in the ICU with him and watch how this doctor worked only to be given false hope from him about my brothers recovery! SYAY AWAY FROM THIS DOCTOR!!!!! Go to the Mayo Clinic and if your child has CF, then try and give them Immunical.
