Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Caldarelli 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.

Patient Comments (2)
Dr. Caldarelli is a kind and caring physician who listens carefully to a patient's description of symptoms. When I was suffering from acute vertigo, he knew how to help me and conferred with my primary physician as often as needed. Upon my move to another city, Dr. Caldarelli sent information from my file when needed and wrote a letter for me to take to my new doctors. I highly recommend him. His care and expertise are invaluable to any patient.

Unfair billing. Dr doesn't spend time with you unless he has an open schedule, which he must since there is no wait for appointments. For one visit he was rushed, the other time he spent more time.People working the desk can;t do their jobs right and don;t disclose additional billing that will automatically be charged. Watch your bill!
