At age 38 year 2017, Dr. Cali’s surgery she performed on me, caused me to have an emergency colostomy bag. She also kept confusing me with another patient. Fortunately I found a Colorectal specialist in Dallas that found the problem and was able to reverse the Colostomy. When Dr. Cali performed surgery on me, she did not re attach the colon correctly, causing severe blockages that resulted with me having to have an emergency Colostomy bag. (External Poop bag). She also cuts you open leaving it very painful to heal. When I went to a specialist in Dallas. My Doctor found and corrected the problem using robotic surgery. I was able to drive and work 2 days later. If you want a colostomy bag, Dr. Cali is perfect.

Although there was a mix up with my medicine, I couldn’t be mad(it wasn’t the Doctors fault)...Dr Cali and the entire nursing staff were helpful and tried to make me comfortable in any way possible. One nurse went above and beyond what should be expected (Rachel). And once I was at home, Dr. Cali, called me to discuss medication and what I should expect in my recovery. You simply can’t get better care anywhere!

Dr.Cali is the best.. I believe she has saved my life twice. The first time is when she found cancer early and the other time is when I had a terrible infection from a fistula. She seen me when no other doctor would. She truely does her 100% for her patients welfare and well being. I don't just concider her my doctor but a friend on a professional level.
