I did not have any of the experiences the low star reviews had. I found Dr Calderone and his direct staff the most comforting of anyone I met at St Francsis. I think it's important to note not a single low rating review has to do with the skill of surgery. I was hiring the best professional to correct my back not a buddy(although I have no complaints about his demeanor or personality). The pain I was experiencing before surgery was 100% gone the moment I woke up from surgery and I am incredibly grateful for that. Even having a lumbar disectomy I was able to get full night sleep that night and was not needing to take any pain medication prescribed to me. My pain has not gone over a 4/10.

The tremendous skill and talent of Dr. Calderon is quite extraordinary, absolutely profound. I feel privileged to have worked with this doctor twice, each outcome beyond successful. Since I have placed my life and care in his hands and he delivered each time, I unflinchingly and with great enthusiasm, recommend Dr Calderon to anyone requiring neurosurgery. He will restore your quality of life. He restored mine.

Wait time is ridiculous. Paper work much unnecessary and be careful the privacy release is unbelievable. You have no privacy rights.

His bedside manner is terrible. I was newly diagnosed with brain cancer and the first thing he said without even introducing himself was that there was nothing he could do for me. He also interrupted a doctor who was in the middle of speaking to me. He is very arrogant.

My surgery went fine but Dr. Calderon does not talk to his patients enough. He would not elaborate on how the surgery went or any details about my condition. And I'm in the medical profession myself. When you go for an appointment you will see his physician's assistant 99% of the time.
