Ratings for Dr. Justine Callahan
I switched from a doctor I had tons of issues with to Dr.Callahan recently and have been sooooooooo much happier. They have gotten me in on short notice multiple times and are very accomodating. Dr. Callahan is compassionate and knowledgeable- nothing bad to say about her at all. Highly recommend!
Dr. Callahan is amazing, the clinic is fabulous. Ignore any negative coments below. In this age of busy clinics, where MD's have you waiting for hours and never have time for you anyways, Dr. Callahan is the opposite. Yes the clinic is busy, but its a well oiled machine, so if you show up on time and follow their guidance your experience will be exactly as it should be. Dr. Callahan takes the time to get to know her patients, she cares about them, and is very intelligent. I cant explain in many more words how happy I am to have her as my GP. I know I'm in good hands with her, and trust her fully.
I was encouraged to see he because I was told she was a very knowledgable and ver proficient Dr. I can not deny this but personality wise I found her cool,unapproachable, dismissive and slightly pushy. She wants to inform you of what you should do rather than work with you to find out what you are comfortable with. Regardless of your background (RN)she does not want to know what you know..she wants to "educate "you . Which is great but it would have been nice of her to explore with me why I felt I did or did not want to do something. Rather I found her tone judgemental. Just my experience. Maybe she was having a bad day, but I hav changed Dr.s.
I have recently moved from Orillia, ON where I was sad to leave my all around great GP. Dr W. McComb was an amazing doctor but was very fortunate to find another great doctor...Dr. J. Callaghan. Very caring, listens and pays attention to what her patient is telling her. She gets to the bottom of your problem and if she cannot, she will immediately refer you to a specialist...
I was lucky to be accepted as a patient of Dr. Callahan last year. Since becoming a patient at her clinic, I have had a recurrent medical problem that's required frequent, short-notice visits. Dr. Callahan has always found a way to accommodate me and provide the care I needed. She is knowledgeable, assertive, and experienced however she is also open to suggestions and questions. I also feel like she genuinely cares about me as a person and, fortunately, she favours a diagnostic and preventative approach rather than pushing medication. She's a great GP. The staff at the clinic have always been helpful despite being very busy.
