      Why Does Experience Matter?

      Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.

      Dr. Caldarelli's Care Philosophy

      I think the first thing you have to do with a patient is greet them with a smile, sit down, and listen. And have them tell you their story. And then we talk back and forth. I'll ask them questions; they'll answer. They'll ask me questions; I'll answer. So it is a conversation basically. The treatment of head and neck cancer varies among patients depending on where their tumor is located. how advanced it is, and it may be a combination of chemotherapy, radiotherapy, and surgery or one of the three. So that collaboration, we all have to be talking - the doctors - talking to each other so we're all in synch for the patient's benefit.
