Excellent professional neurologist that listened to me, sent me to his staff who did the testing for neuropathy respecting my sensitive thin skin to get me successfully thru a difficult test for me. I would trust going to his office again if needed.

Dr. Callaghan's experience, expertise and genuine care for his patients are instantly apparent.  He is a diligent, professional, empathic, insightful, realistic, common sensical and knowledgable physician.  A neurological appointment isn't the place for sugar-coating information about a patient’s condition.  Patients need to have the best medical information and analysis available to have realistic expectations about viable treatments and probable outcomes; Dr. Callaghan delivers exactly that.

I agree w/ Jan. 2016 reviewer in that he had no bedside manner. He brushed me off asking why I was there when I had a very thoroughly completed new patient information sheet. I don't know how much time he spent reviewing it before he came in the room, but he spent almost no time obtaining more history information and his examination was not thorough-only did a few muscle strength tests, reflexes, observed gait. Minimized MRI findings saying radiologists over-read. At least ordered EMG.
He had absolutely zero bedside manner. He was extremely insulting, condescending, patronizing, and rude. He told me that I was relatively normal because I have a college degree and NF. He also said I saw another guy with NF but you don't want to see him, he had it REALLY bad. I found this to be extremely inappropriate to say to anyone lef alone someone with the same condition. He clearly doesn't understand the concept of patient confidentiality. I would never go back or recommend him.
