I have been impressed with Dr. Calonje's efficiency in his office. By the time you see the doctor you have had all of your testing and visual exams for him to see. He takes his time in making sure all your questions are answered. His surgical skills are well honed doing more retinal surgery than anyone else in Tucson. He is also a humanitarian with his surgical clinics in Latin America.
