It was an absolute pleasure to meet Dr. Calandra. His patience and sweetness are beyond calming. He took his time to come again just to meet with me since I was not at my grandmother's bedside the first time. He listens to the patient, not just asking questions and, most importantly, finding a solution. I recommend his services.

I am very pleased with the interactions with the staff and the doctor. Had a very good conversation with the doctor about my conditions and actions to take relating to medications and scheduling of future visit.

Kind, responsive, knowledgeable, compassionate, and highly skilled at his job. Dr Gluskin is a great doctor. I would give him six stars but they only let me have five!
