Great doctor
Dr. Caradonna was my doctor for 21 years. I trusted & believed in him. He was neither in a hurry or made me feel like I was wasting his time. He has retired now & I hope he is completely enjoying his retirement!!!

I can't express how much I appreciate Dr. Caradonna and his office staff. I went through MAJOR issues with Crohn's recently, including surgery and a few emergencies - and they were always 100% attentive and caring. The Doc has called me on his day off and weekends when I have had issues, just to make sure I was getting the right care when I needed it. Truly caring staff, and my current good health is directly because of the care they gave.

They are only interested in money, not the patient. I am on limited disability income and have Medicare for insurance. I was scheduled for a procedure and they would not proceed until they collected the amount not covered by Medicare. I asked if they could bill me the invoice and/or arrange a payment plan, and they refused. This is the first time and the only Physician that has treated me this way.
