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.

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++++!!!!!!!
