I have been seeing Dr. Callender for years. Her staff is professional, courteous and knowledgeable. She has a great bedside manner and listens to her clients. She explains everything! I recommended her many times to friends and family.

I did not see Dr. Callendar. This rating is in regard to the practice overall. I saw a Physician's Assistant. The doctor was not available during the time that I was looking to have an appointment scheduled as a new patient. I had difficulty getting my RX sent to my insurance company and was supposed to have someone call me to schedule a biopsy, which never happened- but due to the poor service I will look for another office for dermatology.

I've been seeing her for years the best thing ever.I love how the Doctors listen to make sure you're getting the best care. I wish I could give her 10 stars cause they deserve it. When I tell people about her they love her too, you will continue to go.

I had a scalp culture done 8 weeks ago and after several weeks of no followup calls from the doctor, I finally tried calling them. After four failed attempts with no return call I finally gave up and went some where else. They seem to be more interested in getting your co-pay then getting you results! Awful!

I was disappointed in the amount of time the doctor spent with me. I was a returning patient (after a 2-year absence). She did not give me any new information. It seems as though I was prompting her/reminding her of my condition and what drugs she had originally prescribed. It appears that she did not have a file on me; she did not say whether or not a follow-up visit would be required, so I did not schedule one. I drive 2 hours to get to her office and probably will not return.
