Horrible is an understatement. Women need to be aware he made me his victim. And this review won't let me post the truth. Scripps seems to not care at all. Watch your privates he's wants a look.

Dr. McCallum is the best. There is no diabetes shaming here like I’ve gotten at other offices. He is compassionate, and recognizes the value and needs of the individual. I’ve been a patient for many years, and he has always been supportive and nonjudgmental.

Dr. McCallum is THE Physician to see if you are Diabetic. I avoided seeing my various Physicians because my A1C was constantly high due to my use of Prednisone that caused my blood sugar to spike. Dr McCallum is the first and only Physician that addressed me as an intelligent adult and made me feel like I was part of a Doctor/Patient team. He arranged a plan for me to obtain a new System to better control my blood sugar, assisted me with usage and helped me all of the way to a great A1C!

A blind Dr. is not worth a dime. A Dr. who lies to his patients won't see them a second time. Scripps has seriously fallen short in hiring this fool to be in charge of a hamster. Have you got the picture yet? Move on.
