    I am forever grateful to Dr. Callaghan for setting my broken wrist after a sudden fall in late March, 2017. The physician on call for Dr. Mc Inerney at Chilton that Sunday, Dr. Callaghan was my God-send. Competent, confident, calm, and kind, he reassured me that my wrist would heal perfectly--and it did! He was not at all surprised by the unusual appearance of my broken bone but simply asked a few questions and began his skilled work and remedied my brokenness. God bless him always!

    I suffered with chronic crushing pain for over 20 years because no surgeon would remove some hardware in my leg from an old war injury. I eventually developed complications. Dr. Callaghan met with me and after talking to him for 5 minutes, I knew he was the guy. What other doctors were afraid to do was a very simple surgery for him and I'm virtually pain free now. He gave me my life back. He also happens to be a very humble, professional and generally nice guy.

    I will forever be grateful to Dr. Callaghan. I am so fortunate that I came upon him while at the end of my rope with a broken humerus that would not heal and I had been dealing with for way too long. I truly believe that he is the best surgeon that I could have ever had. I don't think I have ever been so confident with any other Doctor. His calm nature with a very personal, down to earth essence is so reassuring. His work is perfection also. My arm is just progressing beautifully.

    I would highly recommend Dr. Callaghan not only for his expertise but his warm bedside manner. He takes the time to explain your condition and what to expect in detail. You never feel rushed and he is a good listener. Additionally, he is very positive yet realistic. If you are looking for a doctor who genuinely cares about delivering an excellent patient experience then look no further!
