Have you seen Dr. Anthony Caffarelli?
Please Use Caution
Posted on November 12th, 2017
This review is being created so you can do your due diligence with this surgeon. Having said that we cannot recommend this physician. Our loved one did not survive her operation with Dr. Caffarelli because he decided at the last minute to add a completely unnecessary procedure that he has very little experience with. He botched that procedure among other surgical errors which directly led to the death of our loved one. Though Hoag could care less about this death, they did send us a letter from their own " investigation" that there were opportunities for improving care in this case and that Dr. Caffarelli was being considered for peer review for his actions. To this day we struggle with why Dr. Caffarelli felt the need to add on a completely unnecesary and very risky procedure to try to correct an issue that he himself estimated was only 5% of our loved ones issues. His answer was, "I was trying to be perfect as a surgeon". We interpret this is as pure ego!! A cardiothoracic surgeon that reviewed our case and expressed concern over Dr. Caffarelli's actions told us..."being a good cardiac surgeon is not just knowing what to do but also what NOT to do" We hope for your sake that Dr. Caffarelli has learned this by now. Again, please use caution and don't let his ego dictate your surgery.

He is very knowledgable and is an expert among experts. Good personality and good follow through. So thankful I was referred to him.
Role model doctor for skill and bedside manners

Brilliant and reknown surgeon with incredibly kind and thoughtful bedside manners. Patiently provides detailed explanations with a calm and reassuring demeanor. Due to emergency nature of surgery, I did not hand select this doctor, but I feel that a greater power was looking out for me by having this doctor conduct my surgery. What a blessing! All doctors should learn from Dr. Cafarelli on how he treats patients with dignity and care.
