Well, I found Dr. Caliendo roughly a decade ago because my mother and I both suffer from Crohn's disease. And we had issues that required his services on the colorectal end of the Crohn's disease spectrum. The practice here with Dr. Caliendo, and all of his nurses, and other doctors here are definitely exceptional. I've called them many times at random hours with different problems, and they've always been accommodating. Have me come in at any time. Always been welcoming. I appreciate that. Having Crohn's disease, as tough as it is, having a support system is priceless. What impressed me most about Dr. Caliendo is just his bedside manner. He treats you like one of his own children. He always keeps it light, keeps it to the point, but always tells you what you need to know and how to treat it. I was practically on my deathbed twice when I came to him with issues with my intestines where they had to be removed because of a colostomy. And he actually gave me back my life. It was tough suffering through the Crohn's. But going through that and having the procedure, he was able to give me back things that I wasn't able to do for years.
