World class excellence

I am three years post treatment with Dr Calkins. With a series of Rf ablation procedures he cured a seemingly intractable a fib and flutter condition that was debilitating. He was attentive, responsive to my needs and questions and reassuring. More important, he was committed to “getting it right” and that is what he did. Have a big problem with your heart? Get the best.

Dr. Caulkins has elevated the quality of my life.

Dr. Hugh Caulkins changed my life. He has ablated me twice - in 2002 and in 2006. My a-fib is now under control with the use of medicine to augment the operations. In the past 16 years, Dr. Caulkins has repeated shown to me his care and concern and his humanity and professionalism and basic decency. For my 2006 procedure, the JHU scheduling office screwed up. This was not Dr. Caulkins' fault. He personally reschedule and built the team to do the procedure the next day when there were no surgeries scheduled. On that team - several of the department heads at JMU. Now, I have had a terrible fall and desperately need the attention of a world class neurosurgeon. Dr. Caulkins made his colleagues aware of my situation and they have fit me into their very busy schedules. You can't place a value on that level of commitment to his patients. Thank you Dr. Caulkins. And your team is awesome as well!

Outstanding Experience With Dr Hugh Calkins

Dr Caulkins is an outstanding example of what we all yearn for in modern day medicine. He will spend whatever time you need to be informed about your condition and to educate you on your options and to help make the best decision for your care. My experience with him included him sending me a 200+ page medical article which he chaired writing on my condition, Afib, and then answering many questions, and then doing my ablation at Johns Hopkins. It was by the grace of God and an “he is the best recommendation” from Dr Patrick Walsh that helped me become a patient of Dr Calkins. Best ever... my Afib is gone! Thank you Dr Calkins! Clay King
