Patient Comments (5)
in Hartford, CT |
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.
in ENFIELD, CONNECTICUT |
I HAD A GREAT EXPERIENCE WITH DR. STEPHEN F. CALDERON. HE ANSWERED ALL MY QUESTIONS BEFORE SURGERY.
Wethersfield |
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.
Hartford, CT |
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.
