What People Say About Dr. John McCaffery, MD
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful

Dr. McCaffery is the best surgeon/physician I have ever experienced. I had a very complicated and risky nasal surgery and he was the only one who was willing to take it on. He is the best at what he does and it went perfectly. He also took the extra time in the surgery to make sure that everything would turn out okay. His communication style is also exceptional--warm, friendly, got to know me as a person, followed up several times by calling me at home to see how I was doing, etc. The best.

Very Expensive!!! Watch out for hidden charges!!! A 10 min visit can cost up to $300+ after insurance. Dr. McCaffery and physicians very skilled and helpfull. Front desk should do a better job informing patients of potential charges when in Dr. Office.
