In her spare time, she enjoys family, hiking and camping.

What Patients Say

"Dr. Kalisiak was one of my Dads doctors when he had Stage 4 pancreatic cancer. Compass Oncology took goodcare of him and Dr. Kalisiak was his favorite! She was gentle and kind.....always anticipating his needs for pain and future appointments to set up to make life easier for him. She is incredibly knowledgeable and I obviously trusted her with my Dad!!!" ---Healthgrades
