Good experience with Caliendo, bad experience with their office

Dr. Caliendo listened to my concerns and was personable and understanding. I did, however, have a very bad experience with his office staff. One of his office staff members is extremely irresponsible, failed to send me critical test results I needed and made my life much more difficult than it needed to be.

Sigmoid Colon Resection

I had a sigmoid colon resection done by Dr. Caliendo. I had my surgery less than a month ago and I feel great! He is a great surgeon and I was out of the hospital in just over 3 days. I highly recommend him!

Very informative, patient, and compassionate

I took my daughter to see Dr. Caliendo for a surgical consult. Both my husband and I, as well as our 15 year old were very impressed with his patience and understanding of our many questions. He was very informative and also did not pressure us into surgery. I have the same disease as my daughter and I am scheduling a surgical consult with Dr. Caliendo for myself. I have seen 2 other surgeons for myself and was not impressed but Dr Caliendo made me feel so comfortable and confident in him.

Former patient

Dr. Caliendo is very unprofessional. He does not know how to do his job. He keeps misdiagnosing. He's in compassionate, rude and doesn't seem to care how you are really feeling. Rushes out of the room in 5 min. Avoid this man for your own good
