Dr. C came in the room with a big smile on his face like he was glad I was there. Very reassuring.
I really appreciated Dr. Callahan taking time to talk with me about my options. I like that he can relate to me as he is an athlete as well!
I felt like the appointment was very rushed, the doctor did very few assessment/tests, and he told me I just had a muscle strain. He did prescribe me PT and at the PT facility they took the time to listen, examine me, and diagnose me with something completely different than the doctor had.
This was my first visit with Dr. Callahan. I found him to be engaging, friendly and professional. He took the necessary time to explain the results of x-ray and gave me options for further care, such as an injection. In summary, I would return to Dr. Callahan.
Great experience with Dr. Callahan. I have seen him in the past and on both occasions he has been very good.
He is an excellent sports Dr. I´ve ever seen. He understands athletes; their injuries and recovery time.
At times, Dr. Callahan talks a little too much and might allow a little more time for the patient to interject. I know he cares -- he´s just a very rapid paced talker.
Dr. C was superb. He asked smart questions, tested my range of motions, and quickly formed a hypothesis and treatment options. Empathetic and methodical at once. Much appreciated.
Dr. Callahan was friendly, knowledgeable, balanced, and sensible. I have high confidence in his advice, and would recommend him to friends needing his services.
Doctor Callaghan was excellent!
I was able to finish the Boston Marathon 5 days after the appointment and therapeutic procedure with confidence that I was not further injuring myself, probably would have had to cancel otherwise.
Callahan is awesome; but so are most of the doctors I have seen. He goes out of his way to explain the pros and cons, the information about conditions, and the medical knowledge needed for me to do my part at home. Callahan is super duper!
We felt like Dr. Callahan was professional and caring.
Love Doctor C.! Best knee doctor out there! Solved my long term injuries after months and months, when other doctors at Virginia Mason could not!
I will always attempt to use Dr Callahan for any functional requirements.
This doctor knew right away what the problem was and how to solve. He was conscientious, polite and very informative.
I actually arrived 2 hours early for my appointment because i finished a dental appointment early. The staff was able to fit me into the doctor´s schedule 90 minutes earlier than i was sheduled. It was fantastic.
Dr. Callahan is a excellent doctor and I would received him to anyone. I´ve had a wonderful experience with him.
Dr. Callahan was magnificent - Highly skilled, conveyed strong interest in me. Provided perfect intervention.
He, and his team, came highly recommended by a friend of mine.
He talked a little fast. Was slightly hard to follow.
Callahan is well known amongst my colleagues--seems we all know him
I have told everyone back here in the east about VM and how good you all took care of me and the best Medical Service I have had in a long time.
I appreciated having x-rays before meeting with him; that was an efficient use of his time and mine.
Dr. Callahan was excellent. His explanations were lucid and inspired confidence in his knowledge and judgment.
Dr. Callahan had done research on my file prior to my arrival for a residual issue I was having. He walked me through MRI and x-ray images and provided explanations for everything. Together, we made a recovery plan that was clear and manageable. Excellent dr.!
Dr. Callahan is a very adept and knowledgeable dr. I feel very grateful to have his help and expertise.
spent a good amount of timing describing my options and what that might mean. surgery vs. rehab
Dr. Callahan was able to help ease the pain - which was actually in my upper back/ ______ area. Very painful, and despite not being a shoulder issue!
Dr Callahan isterrfic at listening, evaluating, and working with me on a treatment plan.
Thank you for the referral to a foot sports med provider
Excellent. I went in thinking my condition was chronic and he figured out what was really wrong and provided a shot that fixed the problem.
I appreciate how Dr. Callahan was able to spend plenty of time with me to diagnose and explain my shoulder injury.
Great bedside manner. Gave me the good news first with lots of enthusiasm.
Someone brief explanation but understandable.
Physician was easy to talk to and helpful with explaining the diagnosis. Described the PT that I could do on my own.
I am extremely happy with all levels of care and service at Virginia Mason. I would recommend Dr. Callahan to anyone in need of sports related care, and everyone at VM was just great.
Dr. Callahan was amazing! He seemed genuinely caring, helpful, and was clearly knowledgeable. I felt confident in the advice he gave me and comforted by the knowledge that I have a medical provider I can fully trust. Immediately after my visit, I sent a text message to my husband and other family members letting them know how pleased I was with my visit. I´ve already recommended him to friends and family members!
Dr. Callahan and I had some communications issues in earlier appointments. We now have a great working relationship.
Dr. Callahan is excellent in all respects. I have a clear plan of action for my knee problem.
Dr. Callahan has been paramount in my recovery, he´s the best!
My health concern was a new problem for me and I was not knowledgeable in this area of medicine. It seems like Dr Callahan is competent in what he does and gave me a diagnosis. But it needs to be evaluated by another department if treatment he recommended does not work. Dr kept referring to another department as "them", and talked about they do this and they do that. After the visit, I felt maybe I should have seen them? Dr Callahan was nice and glad he gave me a diagnosis but he made the treatment he recommended sound like hard challenge.
Dr. Callahan´s advice was respectful and relevant.
Wonderful visit Thank you
Excellent doctor !
Dr. Callahan is great, I have never experienced any issues with him.
