in Celina, Tx |
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
