This doctor saved my husbands life. He was diagnosed with stage 4 colorectal cancer. Outcome didn't look good, but this surgeon worked a miracle and we are eternally greatful for him and his wonderful staff. Dr. Cacdac is very caring and compassionate. He has always been there for us for after care and hospital visit related to radiation enteritis issues, a side effect of the radiation he reeived. Dr Cacdac is friendly and funny. Knowledgeable and spends as much time with you as necessary.

He ruined my life! After going to him for a simple hemorrhoid surgery, he destroyed my rectum. One doctor said it looked like he'd taken the end of a blender and forced it up my rectum. I had to have a colostomy for 3 years. I still have extreme bowel problems and must remain in my house near the bathroom most days. The worst part was that after he ruined my rectum he acted like all was ok and I was just a pest. He refused to see me or help me or even answer my calls.

Dr. Cacdac was so friendly and funny, he immediately put my husband and I at ease. He's extremely professional but manages to make you feel calm when having to deal with embarrassing and painful issues! My husband ended up needing surgery, and they were able to schedule him within a couple of days; no excessive waiting. The nurses at the office were so friendly also. We would highly recommend Dr. Cacdac!!
in Cathedral City, CA |
This doctor treats his patients poorly. He actually walked out on me after I expressed concerns. I'm scared, nervous with stage 4 cancer and need a port changed. While I am not the easiest person to work with, the Dr was soooo rude and actually argued with me......wouldn't have been an issue if he read my chart in advance. He had no insight into some issues that may complicate surgery- he didn't want to hear it. WHAT! He's a doctor and being paid to help patients.
