Specialties

Dr. Scott D Callaghan has the following 2 specialties

  • Neurology

    A neurologist is a physician who diagnoses and treats disorders of the nervous system which is comprised of the brain, spinal cord and nerves. These doctors do not perform surgery, but refer patients to neurological surgeons when they determine that surgical intervention is necessary.
    Some of the conditions that neurologists diagnose and treat are epilepsy, aneurysms, hydrocephalus, Parkinson's disease, multiple sclerosis, stroke, spinal disc herniation, and spinal disease.
    In addition to using diagnostic tests like MRI, CT scans, EEG and EMG, neurologists also employ neurological testing to gauge muscle strength and movement, balance, reflexes, sensation, memory, speech, and other cognitive abilities.

  • Psychiatry

    A psychiatrist is a doctor with specific training in the diagnosis and treatment of mental illness.
    He or she can not only provide the counseling necessary to both diagnose and treat a patient, but can also prescribe medication when needed. In some cases, a psychiatrist will only provide the medication and the counseling will be provided by another healthcare specialist, like a certified counselor or psychologist.
    Like other doctors, psychiatrists employ diagnostic tools like CT scans and MRI in order to observe the structure and function of a patient's brain.
    Once a diagnosis is made, these specialists may use behavior or cognitive therapy in order to address the patient's condition, or a multitude of other types of therapy, in conjunction with or in place of medication.

Fantastic Doctor

I have been seeing Dr. Callahan for around 13 years for tension migraines. I love that he is a straight shooter, and has tried many options to get me to where I am today, which is maybe 1 migraine a month, if that.

He was rude, uninterested and barely assessed me. He placed me on Zonegran (for headaches) and told me to be compliant and come back in a month. I was a zombie on this med. Every doctor I have seen since him said they would never prescribe this med for headaches and were applaud he chose this medication over all the other choices. He made you feel as if you were bothering him and even stated that my case was uninteresting. He is the rudest doctor I have met.

He has experience and was accurate with a condition he had found, but his rudeness is not excusable. When patients ask questions because they need information help, being curt and rude by telling them to not call unless they become incontinent is wholly unprofessional. The number of delays prior to treatment was also unprofessional and my life was impacted by that as well. I hope other patients of his will also share their experiences.

I would refer this dr to anyone needing a knowledgeable, professional neuro consult and treatment. His bedside manner was incredible. Neuro testing is more than uncomfortable. He explaines step by step what to expect and possible outcomes and/or treatments.
