The gold standard of care. A sweet,kind,and caring physician. Her staff is also above and beyond the normal also very kind and attentive to your needs. We drove 762 miles from Georgia. The healthcare system needs more medical facilities like this one. I will make the drive again if I have to .The service and staff here are outstanding! Thank you.

Although there was a mix up with my medicine, I couldn’t be mad(it wasn’t the Doctors fault)...Dr Cali and the entire nursing staff were helpful and tried to make me comfortable in any way possible. One nurse went above and beyond what should be expected (Rachel). And once I was at home, Dr. Cali, called me to discuss medication and what I should expect in my recovery. You simply can’t get better care anywhere!

Dr.Cali is the best.. I believe she has saved my life twice. The first time is when she found cancer early and the other time is when I had a terrible infection from a fistula. She seen me when no other doctor would. She truely does her 100% for her patients welfare and well being. I don't just concider her my doctor but a friend on a professional level.

I love having her as a doctor. She is a very kind, caring, professional, and smart in her profession. I say she has saved my life twice. I couldn't find a colon/rectal doctor that would see me. She did.. She has found the cancer within seconds. Did a colonoscopy and biopsy the in the suspected area and it turned out positive. If I could give more stars I would. She has helped me tremendously. I had colon/rectal cancer that isn't showing on scans anymore thank to the oncologist I had, but I was in terrible pain. Afterwards I got a infection from a fistlua. She diverted my colon so now I'm on a colostomy bag that can (hopefully) be put back to normal depending on how the radiationized skin is in the area. Still have discomfort but pain is gone and best of all finally off pain meds after about 2 yrs. as to where I was starting to eat morphine like tic tacks. I was able to ween myself off of them and now none. So it's by choice to get off pain meds (cause of my hate toward pills and medications) but I couldn't do it without her doing the operation and she has done a great job. Healing went great, she checked on me to see if everything was going well. I see her as more then a doctor but as a friend. She truely is the best of doctors.

I think that Dr. Cali is the most caring concern doctor I have ever met in my life. She takes the time with her patients she explains exactly what's going on and what her expectations are for her patient. She is just awesome

Doctor Cali is caring, experienced and totally involved with the welfare of her patients above and beyond the call of duty. She will explain everything in understandable terms of any condition, procedure and recommendations she suggests. I have complete confidence in her abilities of assessing and treating my condition.

She is by far the kindest, most caring doctor I've met. Ever. I had a very good experience considering why I had to see her. I will keep her as long as I can.
