Verified Patient Reviews
He was a true gem. He was professional and made me feel at ease from the moment I met him. He got down to business and yet didn't make me feel rushed! Though I do not come back fir a year, I will definitely be back! Thanks also for a well rounded and fun staff.
Excellent. He is professional and thorough and informative.
Dr Richard is an instantly likeable guy, and an obviously highly competent medical professional. I would recommend him to anyone needing his specialty.
Unfortunately Dr. Callari was not able to help me with my problem. There was no medicine or treatment available.
He was awesome!
Very personable. He and his team spent time with me, were really concerned about my condition and explained everything in detail. I highly recommend him!
Professional, friendly and treated me as a person!
Great. Really glad the reviews were accurate. He is great.
The visit to the office was very nice, Dr and office staff very nice and courteous. Only difficulty was in finding his actual office as the building itself, really has no outside marker.
This never happened to me before, this doctor just told me he could do nothing for my sensitive throat and shook my hand inviting me to leave his office. My advise to other patients is that unless you have a dignose that can be esily fixed with a surgical proccedure avoid wasting this Dr's time. He is probably too comfortable to bother thinking outsite his routine surgeries to help a patient.
I am a repeat patient. I recommend Dr. Callari to everyone who is looking for an ENT that will actually listen to you. He helped me with some problems that no other ENT would help me with. He is very personable and pleasant.
Very thorough, informative and friendly.
Dr. Callari is unlike most South Floridian doctors I've seen. Usually you wait and wait, and then the doctor spends two-five minutes with you. Not only was the 10:15 appt time honored, but Dr. Callari is warm, personable and knowledgable. I felt very at ease with him, and his professionalism is A++++!!!!!!!
The office appeared clean upon entry. The wait was not long. Dr. Callari introduced himself. He listened to me and then described exactly what he was going to do. Then efficiently did it. the office staff seemed pleasant and knowledgeable.
I'm so glad I went to Dr. Callari ! He addressed my concerns after thorough examination and evaluation . I found the staff to be very helpful and professionally upbeat! I would highly recommend him to anyone !
He was such an outgoing and intelligent doctor. He listened to all our concerns and even when he recommended something and we had another route in mind, he had no problem adjusting to what we wanted. He made us (my wife and i) feelvery at ease. This is one ENT I would recommend whole heartedly!
I always look forward to follow ups, Dr Callari, is fun, accurate with info, and right to the point, no sugar coating.
Amazing doctor. Did a lot for me and his balloon sinoplasties actually DO work. Awesome experience, I highly recommend.

Great experience! Highly recommend!
He was an excellent doctor. I will be seeing him again.
I liked him and felt he is very thorough and professional .
It's about time: Best thing about Dr. Callari is you can expect NO nonsense, straightforward. He's not going to hold your hand. The treatment he will perform is a life-changing thing for me and I feel confident putting that in his hands. He is professional and reciprocates humorously. No one likes going to the doctor, but I am going to assume he is a doctor that other doctors see themselves. Being on ZocDoc he is officially "with the program" I rate 5/5 stars.
He really knows what he's speaks about...fantastic.
Very knowledgeable professional. He knows a lot but yet talks in terms so that non-medical people understand.
It was great. Really nice guy and he knows what he is doing. Very knowledgable.
Absolutely wonderful. Highest recommendations. Professional and personable. Office staff was polite and helpful.
He is a very good doctor, very much about detail which I like in a Doctor, you feel that he cares and that you are not one more cow in the office as it happens in many other doctors consultations.
Great, as usual ! Friendly staff, no waiting. Detailed, direct info about options.
I love Dr. Callari!
Warm, never too busy to do a complete checkup. He is a loving family man, a rare doctor experience. Answers are NOT vague, and defensive. He cuts right through it.
I've used him since 1989- He's a great doctor!
