I had been a patient of Dr. Caldron's for 16 years. BCBS denied my infusions and it has been horrible ever since. Neither Dr. Caldron or his staff were the least bit concerned that my RA was causing a lot of pain without any new treatment plan. I had to force appointments and medication alternatives. Since I was no longer receiving the expensive infusions from his office they no longer seemed to care about my well being. He fired me because I was too "to demanding".

Dr. Caldron was kind, thorough and knowledgeable. I feel at ease with him providing my medical care.

Dr. Caldron would not approve xrays to determine why I had lost 2 in height within the last 3 years. He says it is not important for me to know because it won't change his recommended treatment plan. His treatment plan is a biologic with potentially extremely dangerous side effects. It's not an easy decision and I feel that xrays would help me make that decision. Dr. Caldron would not cooperate. I haven't had any xrays in over 3 years. Apparently I just have 'curiosity and no reason for xrays'.
