Very satisfied with Dr Caballes
Dr Caballes was very professional and answered all my questions. I wasn’t rushed and didn’t feel like I was taking up all of his time. I feel comfortable in letting Dr Caballes do a procedure on my hamstring. I highly recommend him to anyone who has an orthopedic problem.

He explained everything and the procedure was fast and almost painless. Just as he explained it. The procedure was to reduce pain and it did. I was in and out in no time.

I have bad arthritis on tops of my feet. Dr Caballes injects the areas of pain and I have relief by the next day which continues for at least 3 months. He is gentle, kind and has my deepest thanks!

Dr. Caballes was very professional. He explained the procedure very well and told of the different options concerning my case. Appreciate his honesty and expertise. Also appreciate Dr. Adamson and his referral. And am looking forward to continuing with exercises with less pain. Thank you both.

An exceptional doctor. Dr C treated my SI joint issues with remarkable care and skill. I’ve had steroid shots with others but I don’t think they got it in the right place. Dr C is a master at figuring out just what is needed. Feeling a lot better already.

I have been seeing Dr. Caballes for almost a year no for injections in my knees (both) and hip. he is straight forward and honest. He is the first doctor to actually listen to my needs and the discuses treatment option. I trusted when he referred me for back issues as well as possible surgery for my hip. Do your home work then call Dr. Caballes.

Today I met with Dr. Caballes. This hands down was the best experience I have had with a doctor. I have birthed two children. Therefore, I have had many experiences with doctors. I luckily have had very positive experiences with doctors in my life. Today wasn’t just positive, it was above and beyond. Dr. Caballes was outstanding with his evaluation of my patellar tendinopathy. He was thorough and just out of this world caring. He absolutely listened to me. I never felt rushed. He made me feel like my experience and my pain mattered. He explained the biomechanics of it all in a very clear way. I am confident that my continued care from Dr. Caballes will be excellent.

I saw Dr Caballes for bilateral knee pain. Since I wasn’t a candidate for surgery, we decided to try the PRP injections. It is too soon to tell if they will help but I am hopeful. Dr Caballes was very knowledgeable and friendly. He was also respectful and friendly to his staff and that left a good impression on me. I would recommend Dr Caballes to friends.
