When I had my wife take me to Northcrest Medical Center on 9/18/2018 with chest pains I was hoping to get Dr. Callister. As my good luck would have it Dr. Callister came in the next day and I was very pleased. He is a very smart doctor. I have the greatest respect for him. Thank you Dr. Callister!!

Dr. Callister came highly recommended and did not disappoint. With a family history of cardiac issues on both sides of my family, I decided to establish a cardiologist sooner rather than later. Dr. Callister cleared up some common misconceptions about blood pressure and I'm looking forward to having him as my cardiologist.

My symptoms were brought on not by a heart condition, but by stress from the loss of my father. No matter. Dr. Callister's focus simply shifted from treatment to preventive care to help me keep my heart healthy. He is very clear in his explanations, wants to make sure you understand, and seems to be very interested in the well-being of his patients. I highly recommend him.

One of the most caring, compassionate Doctors I have ever found. Has time to address any questions a patient might have and truly listens, then explains in terms we all can understand. There's no way I would drive to Nashville to see a heart doctor when we have the best right here in Hendersonville. I really appreciate Dr Callister and would recommend him to anyone!
