Dr. Callahan is a knowledgeable, extraordinarily skilled physician--I would highly recommend her to both family and friends. I have been to the office for routine treatments to address medical issues with my eyes as well as for cosmetic procedures. I trust Dr. Callahan entirely. Not only are my results incredible, it is clear she cares deeply about her patients and their outcomes.

I had a very positive experience with Dr. Callahan for blepharoplasty (Removing excess eyelids blocking some of my vision). The day of surgery she ran late, but with an afternoon time, that often can't be avoided. Office appointments are timely. Dr. C explained the procedure and the office sends written explanations that are very useful. Recovery was quick (I use arnica montana to help with bruising.) and eleven days post-op I have the go-ahead to resume using eye make-up and going to the gym.

Had a procedure with Dr. Callahan on lay terms (tightening of the eye muscles and cutting away fat from upper lids). She was wonderful and her surgical staff were very attentive. Dr. Callahan was very professional and I feel the outcome was a successful. It has only been 2 wks and there is already a noticeable difference. I would highly recommend her.

Dr. Callahan provided excellent care. She ran tests, told me what was wrong with my eyelids and clearly explained the surgery needed to repair them. Surgery was short, and recovery was what I expected. I could hardly believe the difference in the before and after pictures she took! I would highly recommend Dr. Callahan.

Besides the one 50-70 minute wait the last 2 time I saw Dr. Callahan, the office is poorly run; inefficient and unorganized. Dr. Callahan herself is nice enough and her credentials are excellent; but I have been to better doctors for similar issues. Her office just happened to be more convenient to my home. I will not be coming back.
