Dr.Caluda did gallbladder surgery on my husband. He was very caring and took the time to explain everything to not only my husband but to me. He gave me all the time that I needed to to get all my questions answered. He was thorough yet took care to provide wonderful pain relief. His entire staff worked to make sure everything was handled effectively and efficiently. Total confidence with this surgeon!

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

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.
