Can't say enough about how wonderful Dr. Calcatera and his staff are. The entire staff was friendly, helpful and went out of there way to take care of my foot emergency. Dr. Calcatera took time to explain how he was going to fix my problem and took great care of me pre and post surgery.

Dr. Calcatera is very kind and knows what he is doing. My foot pain is completely gone and I highly recommend him. The only negative thing is that the staff could be more professional and limit their personal conversations. It is a small office so easy to hear loud talkers.

Dr. Calcatera is very knowledgeable and clearly has patients' best interest in mind. He explained that he preferred to start treating my problem conservatively and didn't just immediately jump into suggesting surgery. My entire family has been treated by him and we trust his judgement and have been very pleased with our results at Brookwood Foot Care!
