I’ve been going to Dr Callahan since he delivered my son 32 years ago. He is kind and compassionate. He has helped me navigate menopause with careful consideration and wisdom from years of practice. I can’t say enough about how much I’ve benefited from having him as my Dr.

Dr Nguyen is truly and caring doctor. My wife just started going to him because she saw how amazing he is and how he listens to you. I would give him 10 stars if I good. But 5 will have to do for those who look at these reviews.

I had my first back injection by Dr. Untal yesterday and was very impressed by his professionalism as well as his compassion. Also the staff and nurses at Gallelo Surgical Center. So far no pain and I’m hoping it will take care of my back issues.

Carol R Jun 14 2020

Review for Dr. Untal

I would never recommend this man. He has always been arrogant to my parents, who are unfailingly nice back to him. Lately, he has added rudeness and actual meanness to his repertoire. We are definitely finding someone else.

If you're seeking a neurologist who's friendly, kind, compassionate, listens well, & takes the time to answer all of your questions, Peter Masny is your guy. My wife started seeing him In January, 2020 & we couldn't be happier with how he "goes the extra mile" for her.
