He delivered my first daughter. I felt he definitely knew his practice well. Very personable. I went to a different office due to commute convienance and stuck it out, wish it had stayed with callahan, he is very personable where as lately with my new ob, I barely met the Dr at 34 weeks and feel like just another face.

Dr. Callahan is my hero and angel. I had my son with natural birth and he was born healthy. An hour after delivery I started to hemorrhage uncontrollably. Dr came back and tried to stop the bleeding for over an hour and finally had to take me into emergency surgery for a hysterectomy. I lost so much blood and was losing my mind at the thought of dying. He was so calm and collected the whole time and kept reassuring me that I was going to be ok. He saved my life. He took care of me and my family.

I've had all 3 of my children delivered by him. Two were vaginal and my last one a high risk pregnancy was c-section. Dr. Callahan was always there for any questions of mine and made me feel safe and confident about any questions or issues. He is always there and truly loves his work. I tired another o.b. before I found him and there were just not same vibes.. will remain with him as long as he still works.
