While the doctor was obviously knowledgeable and articulate, we were kept waiting for 50 minutes in the exam room. The actual exam took only 5 minutes. My time is just as valuable as his. This was unprofessional and disrespectful.

Review for Dr. Caldemeyer

Went to see Dr Shell about my knees. He explained what was going on and said let’s start with something simple. I wasn’t looking for surgery. He assured me that was way off. He said let’s start with a cortisone shot. So far it’s working.
