Dr. Callahan consistently listens and demonstrates his concern, plus determination to help. He takes the time necessary to provide excellent care to his patients, which occasionally causes waits in his lobby, but for me, I am willing to wait for such compassionate and knowledgeable care. He is outstanding!

By far the best Doctor I have seen. He takes his time to listen and is extremely bright. He is genuinely kind. The front office is always a reflection of the Doctor, therefor they are great, Please do not be discouraged if you feel you have waited a while in the room before he arrives, he will take just as much time with you as well. A smart man. A great doctor.

Dr. Callahan did an excellent job of explaining my problem. He spent time with me like I was his only patient. I never felt rushed. I wish all doctors were as kind and thorough!
