Unfortunately my response to Dr. Caldwell is the same. He has to learn to listen. He assumes everyone acts or reacts the same to specific treatment. And can be stubborn to individual. I would not recommend him to anyone until he improve in these areas.

My recent visit with Dr. Caldwell left me feeling unheard. Dr. Caldwell dismissed my concerns about pain and future mobility of my shoulder. He spent a total of 1 minute listening and then told me to make another appointment, then walked away. I was very disappointed in his lack of empathy.
