Dr McCaffrey did my maxillary surgery at TGH(out patient) last month and he was the best! He was not only caring, understanding and compassionate but he explained the procedure very clear for anyone to understand. He was thorough before and after the surgery...he even called me the day after surgery to see how I was doing and make sure I did not need anything!! What Dr. does that ....thank you .. Ms. Cosme

I do not recommend this dr. After doing my mother's surgery he was very dismissive of concerns we had that she developed infection at the surgical site. At a post op appointment there was oozing at the surgical site (enough that it soiled her shirt collar). We were told that because she didn't have high temporature (had low temp) to just keep an eye on it and we felt rushed regarding any other concerns we had. Later than same day my mom was in the ICU because the infection had her nearly septic.

He has the knowledge and expertise but after having a major airway surgery he never visited me once in the hospital post surgery. His residents would come who had a terrible bed side manner and didn't listen to my concerns. At my post surgery appointment in his office I had a ton of questions but scoped me and ran off. DIdnt give us any time to address quesrions and concerns. We would tell his nurse we weren't done and She had the same I don't know and I don't have time attitude
