Dr Calanda has been treating me for CAD since 1998. He also took care of my husband. Over the years I have found his professionalism to be exemplary. He has a genuine concern for the welfare of his patients. If you have concerns he will address them . He always wears a smile. He has a wonderful bedside manner. Whenever a coronary medical emergency arises in me I have always had complete confidence in him because I knew I was in good hands. I have and would recommend him highly ~ Linda Green
