This is a terrific doctor. He takes care of our whole family, from the 18 yr old to the 91 year old all with very different problems. We all love him because he gives knowledgeable compassionate care. Incidentally, none of us have addiction problems.

Dr Callaway is brilliant...and he isn't afraid to let you know ; ) He took me in, even though I missed my appointment because of an emergency. You never quite know when you are done with your appointment, which I think is kind of funny... he walks in and out of the room, and I sometimes have to ask, "am I done?". Dr Callaway knows what he's doing and if you follow his strict instructions, I believe you will do just fine... more than fine.

Dr. Callaway spent 90 minutes with me and made an accurate assessment. I am grateful to finally know the source of what has been wrong with me for the past (god only knows how long!) I had been seeing a psychiatrist to monitor my bipolar, for the previous two years at a high rate of $145.00 for maximum 20 minutes. Dr. Callaway is in my insurance network and was covered for one tenth of that high cost of the other doctor, and now I know the correct diagnosis. He may come on a little strong at times, but he knows his stuff with the medical issues of alcoholics/addicts, and alcoholics who have dual diagnosis.

We run an inpatient drug and alcohol treatment facility and we send all our patients to Dr. Callaway. He truly is compassionate, cares about the patient and knows addicts and how to treat them. I highly recommend his services to anyone looking for a good internal doctor and especially someone who is an addict. Many doctors do not understand addiction and prescribe dangerous addictive drugs that make patients worse or they become addicts when they weren't before. He has been serving the immediate community for over 30 years and everyone I know who has seen him loves him and has benefited from his help and unlike most others he does not gouge suffering people

Before I give Dr. Callaway's review; I'd like to 'qualify' myself: I have been an alcoholic/addict for almost 30 years; and have almost one year of clean and sober recovery after twelve attempts to dry out in rehabs. After many years and four surgeries, one of my other doctors pointed me to Dr. Callaway as a last resort for certain treatment options. I found Dr. Callaway to be unbelievably kind, attentive, thorough, and more knowledgeable than 99% of the doctors I have seen in the past twenty years. In just one-half hour, he identified three medical issues for me that no other physician even attempted to diagnose. He was able to prescribe the correct medications for some of these issues and ordered extensive lab work for others in order to confirm hypotheses. He also provided me with references to a number of meetings in the area that would help me greatly with my personal issues. As a result, I have quite a bit of hope for my own future. For the record, I would like to state that Dr. Calloway has proven himself to be personable, very funny, and, above all, honorable. Moreover, Dr. Callaway puts a great deal of *personal* investment in each and every one of his patients; in other words, he cares about them more than he cares about himself. This is an indisputable fact. Anyone who has a negative issue with Dr. Calloway would want to ask themselves if they had followed his carefully planned program for their recovery. If they had not done so, and, if I were in Dr. Callaway's position; that of having given a comprehensive diagnosis and proper treatment plan to a patient, who then refused to follow that plan, I would be *highly* annoyed with that patient as well. That's all for now. Best wishes to all of you.

I used to work with Jerry, years ago, and he was one of the kindest most caring people I have ever met. If I stilled lived in Northern Cal I would want him as my own physician.

I went into Dr. Callaway's today to get checked up for a sinus related issue, fever, sore throat and troubles with breathing. I was asked to go to get radiology work done so that he could understand what was going on prior to asking me any questions about my condition or doing any sort of a routine check up. In addition, I was sent to the wrong radiology clinic by his staff only to sit for over an hour to be told that there were no radiology technicians available. I went back to Jerry's office and was given an entirely different set of directions from the first. At this point I have no energy, I can barely stand and absolutely nothing was done by him or his staff to check temperature, throat, breathing, etc. I never even made it past his waiting room.

I will never go to Jerry Callaway again. I have received the same feedback from one other previous client of his but decided to give Dr. Callaway the benefit of the doubt only to find that the review was correct.

Dr. Callaway is a fine M.D. who specializes in recovery from alcoholism and addiction. Dr. Calloway WILL understand your problem because he has been there himself. A leader in the field of recovery who is on top of all of the latest ailments and treatments.

Call early because appointments can be hard to get he is so popular!
