Dr. Calvo's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Calvo "You can get excellent cancer care, right here, in your own community!"

Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Calvo "My philosophy is based on 3 principles; any oncologic disease is manageable, any treatment can be provided here in our community, and any person should be treated as if they were your close relative. Therefore in my practice you will not hear "there is nothing that can be done for you", or "you need to go somewhere else for treatment" and you will be treated with respect and compassion."

My mom ended up with Dr Calvo after her dr went on maternity leave. We never even considered going back to other dr. My mom was diagnosed with stage 4 lung cancer with brain metastasis. We could not have asked for a better dr or treatment plan
