    I met with 3 General Surgeons before I felt comfortable enough choosing Dr. Caluda. I was extremely anxious and nervous about this whole process and after first meeting with him, he put all my worries aside. I understand how busy Doctors are and how rushed they seem however, what separated Dr. Caluda from rest was that he took the time to answer my questions and acted like he truly was there to help me, the patient. I highly recommend him for any procedure!

    Dr Caluda did a wonderful job explaining the procedure, answering my questions, and putting me at ease during the initial visit and right before the surgery. I had very little bruising after the surgery and was almost healed by the time of my follow up. Excellent surgeon! I'd be happy to recommend him to anyone. I'd also like to mention his professional, caring staff.

    Dr Caluda is a great surgeon........ Thanks to his OR staff...Pam, Rhonda, Winter,Stacy and Eva my out patient surgery was so much less stressful. I would recommend Dr. Caluda III and the nurses listed above at Sacred Heart Hospital to family and friends. Wait time and thoroughness, a key ingredient to a successful procedure. Thanks Everyone

    This is the best general surgeon in this region, bar none. For the conditions that he treats, there are no equals in this area.

    Great bedside manner. Explained everything. I was scared to have surgery,but he was great and put me at ease. Smallest incisions, gallbladder out, no complications. Highly recommend this doc.

    medical knowledge, surgical skill and compassion. I would trust Dr. Caluda with any surgery I needed... no ifs, ands or buts.

    Dr Caluda removed half of my thyroid. Total time for procedure was just over one hour. He is exceptional. Almost no post op pain and he does ensure that all your needs are answered. He does not, unless circumstances dictate, make hospital visits but does answer all nurse calls and ensures your discharge documents contain any and all requirements for follow ups or med requirements. He makes sure you get the best care. Need a friend, make one. If you want the best surgeon, see Dr Caluda.

    Dr. Caluda performed my thyroid removal surgery. He was over an hour late for the surgery, did not prescribe thyroid medication during my hospital stay and did not show up for rounds the next morning. The follow up care from Dr. Caluda and his staff has also been disappointing. He does not listen to his patients and his nurse does not return calls.

    Very Knowledgeable and friendly. Caring and easy to take to.
