Ratings for Dr. Robert J. Caccavale
Went to their office when my husband had lung cancer. They recommended Steeplechase even when we asked about other places. Have us a very thorough explanation about how surgery would proceed after chemo and radiation. When those treatments were finished, they refused to operate!!! My husband fainted on the office. We wound up at Sloan for the surgery after a recommendation by Steeplchase. A year and a half later all is well, no thanks to them.
Dr Caccavale and Dr Bocage operated on me after being sick and in pain for almost 2 years. I was released from the hospital the next morning after having 1/3 of my lung removed. I had 2 small children at home to take care of, age 1 and 5, and within two weeks (actually 10 days) i resumed all my normal activities, including going to the gym, laudry and chasing my kids around. Dr. Caccavale is one of the most amazing doctors i have ever come in contact with (unfortunately i have met alot of them). He is extremely knowledgeable, compassionate and explained everything in terms I could understand. I never felt rushed and when i called the office to ask additional questions he had no problem getting on the phone with me personally. I would highly recommend Dr. Caccavale and his partner Dr Boacage to anyone who requires a thoracic surgeon.
My mother lost her life in the hands of Dr. Caccavale after a half hour in surgery - I tried to post this and someone removes it... BE CAREFUL, do your research, Everyone is NOT a candidate for this procedure... Maybe now he will look at everyone as an individual..She was in perfect health..Please Please be careful...
Dr. Caccavale and his partner Dr. Bocage did an outstanding job of laparoscopically removing a lung tumor from my husband 6 years ago. 4 small incisions for the laparoscope - they performed the surgery in tandem. My husband was up and about within hours of the surgery, and resumed his normal (retired) life within days. Our highest recommendation to these talented surgeons.
