Dr Kalinsky is an absolute God Send. I arrived in the Monterey area about a year ago to spend time with my family and recover from heart complications and chronic back pain. He is the most caring Doctor I have ever had in all my 60 years of living. With the help of the injections and properly using the medication I have been able to live a more active lifestyle which includes daily 3-4 Mile walks on the beach. Having come from the east coast where we had extreme humidity during 4 months of the year I found I could no longer go outside and exercise and my health was slowly deteriorating. We live in the best weather in the US and Dr Kalinsky has helped me recover to lead a more healthy lifestyle on a daily basis

Rude and a pill pusher. Always asking patients about other patients and will ask them to keep him up on street gossip. And yes he will drop you from being his patient even if the gossip is not true. He is too cheap to give drug test to make sure you are taking the Meds.He likes to take young people who pays cash and patients with no insurance so he gets cash. I don't see how he can talk about other patients to one another seeing there is a hippa law.no receptionist, very greedy doctor.

He was rude and stopped my treatment because of a rumor leaving me with less than a week to find a new doctor,he refused to give me a reason for this action, then finally said it was because I had done something illegalwhen I had done nothing of the sort

This "Doctor" is a drug pusher. His main goal is to get you addicted to narcotics to keep you coming back.

Positive Comments

He puts on a good "show" of being friendly.

Negative Comments

Horrible doctor, he is a General Practioner NOT a trained pain specialist. His main tool is his prescription pad. He writes large prescriptions for hundreds of pills, with no referals by any other doctor. No referrals confirming you medical history. In short he is a "quack".

General Comments

Stay away from this doctor, he is dangerous. His weapon of choice is his prescription pad, and his motive is making more and more money.
