About Me

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.

What People Say About Dr. Alejandro Calvo, MD

We no longer see Dr Calvo. I have a rare cancer and after visiting two other name cancer centers I have found that Dr Calvo’s information on the Standard of Care” is more than 2 years out of date. I understand that it is very difficult to be an expert on everything! But this is MY LIFE and he should have referred me to someone more knowledgeable or done some research. I do not recommend Dr Calvo to anyone. His ego gets in the way!

In 2007 I had a roux-n-y gastric bypass surgery. I was encouraged to take zinc supplements for life. In Mar 18, I landed in the E.R. with acute anemia. Dr. Calvo, thinking I had pre-leukemia, ordered a bone marrow biopsy. I do not have leukemia, instead I have critical zinc poisoning which caused a total life threatening erosion of my copper levels. All such surgical patients should have their zinc levels monitored! Dr. Calvo saved my life. See further comments submitted to Dr. Calvo.

I had a rare form of breast cancer. I was fortunate to get Dr.Calvo as my oncologist. A lot of people asked me why I didn't go to one of the cancer center they advertise on TV. My answer to them was why should I do that when I had one of the best doctors around. You won't find another doctor that's so devoted to his patients.He always takes his time to explain everything.

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

Dr. Calvo was recommended to me by a friend who was a home healthcare nurse. She said all of her cancer patients raved about him and now I can see why. He takes time to answer your questions and doesn't treat your case with a cookie cutter approach. Each patient is different and special.

I met Dr. Calvo when I was diagnosed with breast cancer. I had read about new testing and lots of questions. He took time to answer all my questions and was up to date on the latest research. He truly cares about his patients and things that are happening in their lives. His calming manner made me more at ease in a scary situation. I highly recommend Dr. Calvo! I no longer have to see him regularly but I know if I have any questions he will bet there to answer them. He is the best!

I was diagnosed with an unexplained blood disorder at the age of 25. Initially we were unsure if it was Leukemia or ITP. After a bone marrow, this diagnosis, and being newly married my world was shaken. Dr Calvo ALWAYS made my husband and I more comfortable with the diagnosis because he could explain the next several options of treatment to us. Dr Calvo was the doctor on call when I was admitted to KHN and I am so thankful God put me in his hands.

This is how patients should be treated by all doctors. Dr. Calvo is caring, compassionate and is genuinely concerned about your welfare. And this also extends to family members of his patients. This time in our lives is already difficult and he just seems to put us at ease each time we see him.
