Ratings for Dr. Joseph M. Caldwell
I would not recommend this doctor at all. He was unprofessional, rude and had a chip on his shoulder right when he walked into the room. I'm not sure if he was mad because my husband had previous chiropractic care and brought the MRI and X-rays with us or if he saw that my husband worked in the RV business and was wanting heavy pain meds? I don't know. I just know we were treated so very rudely and made my husband feel worthless and like he Didn't care about him. He did get us set up with physical therapy which is the single good thing that came from our visit. We will never go back.
This Doctor overlooked common information before my surgery and left me disabled. I had to have another emergency surgery due to him not checking my bone density. The bone he screwed into broke. While I was in the hospital recovering. Find another Doctor!!!
This doctor is ver rude and thinks he knows everything. He made the third back doctor I've been to, only to tell me that since there is nothing wrong with your legs then we can't do the surgery. I can't walk more than 10 minutes! I have heard nothing but negative things about him! He looks at you like your worthless and he doesn't need you in his office. Not my kind of Doctor.
Wouldn't recommend Dr Caldwell for any surgery. You will find yourself going for another surgery to fix what he didn't do right the first time ! More recovery time already 2 months in now another 3 or more months . Good luck if u choose him as your surgeon!!!!
Dr. Caldwell was very helpful in discussing what my problem was and the type of surgery he would do. I never felt pressured into anything and he will tell you if you do not need surgery or if he does not fell he can help you. i am very happy with what he did and the time he is willing to spend with a patient to make you comfortable and you understand all aspects of care.
I have the utmost confidence in Dr. Caldwell,he is always willing to take the time to explain what the problem is and answer any questions that I have. He preformed my surgery on my back and I have very little pain and have been recovering at a rate that I didn't expect. I had a cyst that he had to get to that required major surgery to remove. When I was in recovery he explained my condition to family members in a way that they could understand and was willing to answer any questions. He also did three fusions.He visited me everyday that I was in the hospital and explained my progress. I would recommend Dr Caldwell for any kind of back issues that you may have. He won't put you through any procedures or testing that isn't needed.
