This was my first appointment with Dr. Cavalcante and I found him to be one of best doctors I have ever encountered. He had an excellent personality and at the completion of my appointment, I felt very informed and understood the course of action of the next phase of treatment.

I brought my adult son to my appointment because I wanted him to have a complete understanding of my health issues. He participated in the questions and answers between myself and Dr. Cavalcante and asked questions of his own which Dr. Cavalcante graciously answered.

All involved with my care and very kind and understanding. I have emailed several questions over the past few months and always have gotten a quick, informative response thru the MYUPMC site. Dr. Calvacante takes time to explain and is very thorough and makes me and my wife very comfortable.
