I've seen Dr. Macaluso for a rubber band hemoroid treatment, and a colonoscopy way back, but today I say his PA Marian Fagbemi for hemoroid surgery. She was extremely helpful in getting me an appointment and explaining to me what was needed to be done and how to prep for the operation which will be done by Dr. Macaluso.

Dr Macaluso and is staff I cannot say enough about. This was my 3rd colon examination in 6 years. From the receptionist to the nursing staff I was made to feel more than comfortable. Great attention to detail by everyone. I was highly recommended by a number of my close friends. My wife Irene and I have no hesitation in recommending Dr Macaluso to anyone.

As a health care provider and having been on numerous hospital staffs, I can only say that there are not enough superlatives to say about Dr. Macaluso. He performed colon surgery on my wife and we can't say enough about how he took care of her. He called her while in the hospital even during evening hours to check up on her.

After visiting with Dr. Macaluso yesterday, I have no fear of his skills OR our upcoming operation for Cecal Volvulus. Knowing this operation has a significant mortality rate (around 40%) demonstrates just how confident I am with Dr. Mac! I am confident that I will have a positive outcome because of the following reason: 1. Both my Internist and my Gastrointestinal Doctor from ANOTHER HOSPITAL independently recommended Dr Mac to me when I asked who, in their opinion, would be the best surgeon.

NEVER in my life have been treated so terrible! He came in and the way I was examined was beyond any nightmare! I have had 5 cervical surgeries, 2 lumbar surgeries (including a lumbar 360), 3 surgeries on my right foot. These have left me with chronic pain for 30yrs. When he pulled Up the medications I have been on for years, his attitude towards me was disgusting. He is the most unprofessional Dr I have ever been to and trust me, I have been to a lot. DO NOT GO TO HIM! NO STARS!!!!!

Dr. Mac successfully handled my complex rectal cancer case with tremendous skill, and explained, in detail, the risks and challenges we would face. He is honest, straight-forward and can be relied upon to give you the facts. Every step of the way, he went above what was expected. My tumor is gone and I give him full credit for making this possible. I would highly recommend him to anyone facing a complicated cancer assessment.

Do not go here...I saw the doctor and he was nice enough, but after I was set up for a colonoscopy, I got very ill with the prep. I called the hospital and cancelled, called the doctors office and left a message before they opened, then called back again as soon as they opened and they are charging me $100 because I had to cancel so early. The hospital even told me not to come as I had been throwing up. Today, I just pulled out my mail and I have been sent to collections.

My husband and I went to see Dr. Mac this week and we were over-the-moon in love with everyone in their office; from Kamber, at the front desk to Brittany, for scheduling surgery! Dr. Mac and Cindy could not have made us feel more at ease! It's always scary going to a new doctor, especially when it's this type of visit, but they made it easy and painless! I highly recommend, that anyone that has to be seen for colon/rectal visits, that you go see Dr. Mac and his wonderful staff!

In 2003, I was diagnosed with colon cancer. I was rushed to Dr. Macaluso, who very patiently explained to me and my wife what I had, where it was located and what he proposed to do. In June of that year, he operated, examined by lymph nodes and notified my wife, that everything would be fine. Its now 2017, I'm cancer free and owe my life to physicians like Dr. Macaluso. I am healthy, enjoined traveling to Europe and all over the United States and have been given the opportunity to give back.

I literally credit the good doctor with saving my life, he was straightforward with the facts about my condition but not once did he make me feel afraid or alone. His staff is outstanding and warm hearted I feel blessed to have found such a man. There's nothing else to say but thank you so much for everything and a second chance
