What People Say About Dr. Joel Callahan Jr, MD

I just called to schedule an appointment with Dr. Callahan as a follow-up to a frightening ER visit over the weekend. The ER doctor assured me Dr. Callahan would work me in quickly. When I told the scheduler that she just laughed out loud and said that didn't make any difference. I will have an appointment in 23 days, and I hope Dr. Callahan lives up to his reputation. But his scheduler's attitude is very inappropriate and dismissive.

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.
