Dr. Daniel F Callahan has the following 3 specialties
- Internal Medicine
An internist is a physician who focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of conditions that affect the adult population—both acute and chronic.
These doctors are often who adults see as their primary physicians because they treat a broad range of illnesses that do not require surgical or specialist interventions. They also work to help a patient maintain optimal health in order to prevent the onset of disease.
In addition to treating the common cold and flu, internists also treat chronic diseases like diabetes and heart disease.
- Pulmonary Disease
A pulmonologist is a physician who specializes in the diagnosis and treatment of conditions related to the lungs and respiratory tract.
These specialists are similar to critical care specialists in that their patients often require mechanical ventilation to assist their breathing.
Pulmonologists diagnose and treat patients with conditions such as asthma, cystic fibrosis, asbestosis, pulmonary fibrosis, lung cancer, COPD, and emphysema. Exposure and inhalation of certain toxic substances may also warrant the services of a pulmonologist.
Some of the tools and tests pulmonologists use to diagnose a patient are a stethoscope in order to listen for abnormal breathing sounds, chest X-rays, CT scans, blood tests, bronchoscopy, and polysomnography.
- Sleep Medicine
A sleep medicine specialist is specially trained in diagnosing and treating disorders involving sleep.
Sleep disorders such as sleep apnea, restless leg syndrome and insomnia are very common and can often cause other serious health issues, such as depression, asthma, and migraines. Sleep medicine specialists often work in sleep centers where they observe a patient while sleeping and monitor brain waves, behavior, and vital signs in order to identify the causes of sleep disturbance, or an inability to sleep (insomnia).
Sleep medicine specialists treat patients through advising on sleep hygiene, providing cognitive behavioral therapy, using light therapy, or medical sleep aides.

He shows sincere concern for his patients. He is willing to continue to pursue all options if he's not positive about diagnosis. Never makes you feel rushed and throughly investigates all possible options. Always returns phone calls. I believe he is one of the nicest most confident doctors I have ever met.
dr callahan is one of the greats. take it from a chronically ill patient with more than her fair share of drs. his nurse, ryan, is also pretty awesome. although jasmine is my favorite nurse in the office. he's done so much for me and i always look forward to our visits. he's kind, makes the best referrals, conversational, smart, and clearly cares deeply for his patients. he knows me better than any other of my doctors. on my first visit he asked, when did this all start? i said, you want the whole story? he said, yes! that's really rare with drs. he almost never interrupts me, another rare attribute. and he considers my whole condition not just my lungs. finally, i can actually call him on the phone. not many drs offer their pts that kind of access. spends a lot of time with his pts, at least 20 min or more. i love dr callahan!!!
wasn't even able to book an appointment due to the incompetence of the staff here. left on hold, then immediately asked for my date of birth, literally the first question out of her mouth, followed by an apology because she had the wrong person, then back on hold until i got tired of waiting and found a different dr.
