Dr Cauldfield is a ripoff. I paid him 2 to do my nose and he still didn't do his job. He also mess up my beast. He lie to me about the size of my breast and put something bigger than what we originally discuss in his office. After I told him about my issue and made a complaint he sent me a dismissal letter to keep my mouth shut. He won't even refund me and try to resolve the problem. They ignore my phone calls and message and they reply with a dismal letter. They told me to find another DR

I saw Dr. Caulfield for the removal of a lipoma on my arm. Upon completion of the procedure I felt he had done a poor job stitching the site. I chose a plastic surgeon for this procedure thinking that the appearance of the scar would be a consideration with regard to its execution. I was VERY wrong. I felt that this "doctor" was very flippant about my concerns and performed the procedure in a cursory manner. I was left with an unsightly scar. If scarring is a concern, please look elsewhere!
