Philosophy:

Rebecca L. Cali, MD, is a board-certified colorectal surgeon who is a fellow of both the American College of Surgeons and the American Society of Colon and Rectal Surgeons.
Since 1992, Dr. Cali has treated the full range of colorectal diseases. In addition to performing colon surgery and colonoscopies, she has expertise in treating anorectal problems, disorders of continence and pelvic floor pain.
Taking the time to listen to her patients is important to Dr. Cali. She feels that being a female physician gives her the ability to put patients – especially women – at ease. “Many people are reluctant to bring up the type of conditions I treat with their primary care physicians but are willing to talk more freely to a doctor who specializes in addressing their specific problem.”
