Patient Reviews ?
How can I review the doctor if only her non-doctor employees "treat" me? Highly commercial office, with a heavy "sell" atmosphere. Somehow my actual health seems to feel somewhat secondary to all the products, optional procedures, spa-like services...where's the doctor, again??
Primarily you will be seen by non-physicians at this practice. If that is acceptable to you when you schedule a visit with your "physician", proceed.
I first started going to SkinSmart about 3 years ago for basic skin cancer screening and acne. Nothing special, the visits were done by Elena Kesterson..once again, nothing special. Last year I decided to get laser hair removal. ($1000 just for upper lip). I received 2 treatments done by Brooke Robbins. She was friendly enough. I got a call before my 3rd treatment saying their machine was broken and they would call me when it was fixed for my remaining appts. Months went by, I would call, still not fixed. After about 5 months I called and asked if I could get a refund.."oh sure we can refund you for the remaining treatments"...oh gee thanks I would've rather have had a full refund since the only two I received didn't remove any hair at all...must've been broken the whole time! OK...last chance...I'll get a consultation for botox. Can't remember who gave me the consultation..but she was nice. Quoted me about $210 for my forehead. (I'm only 35..hardly a wrinkle..but wanted to start early). When I went for my appt 2 weeks later and met Dr Callahan, she quoted me at $525! After I was already in the chair ready to get botoxed. uhhh....guess Im paying $525. So the price doubled...not very cool. My forehead does look nice...but for $525? After researching online and talking to other women who have gotten botox...I was told I got RIPPED OFF. Will NOT be giving SkinSmart Dermatology any more chances...and I will tell everyone considering anything cosmetic to look elsewhere for pricing or make sure you have an agreed upon price beforehand.
Dr callahans office is not only effiicent it also has the best services. Brooke Robbins Arnp-c and staff really care about your issiues and give excellent results I would strongly recommend Skinsmart for all your dermatology needs

I have been going to Dr. Callahan for several years and am very pleased with her -- all services are exceptional
I have been a patient of Dr Callahan for over 5 yrs. I see Brooke Robbins, ARNP-C for examinations quarterly. She is extremely professional, thorough and compassionette. I would strongly recommend the srevices of SkinSmart Dermo. to family and friends.
I was suffering from an unknown lesion on my face which appeared overnight while I was away from my home. Ifound Dr.Callahan's office on the internet and emailed for an appointment early one morning. The office called me when they opened and scheduled an appointment for that afternoon. I was met by the most professional and caring staff. They cared for me as if i was an old friend. I was so impressed with Sandi that I I have also booked spa appointment. Thanks Dr. Callahan.
Thank you for driving almost 2 hours to come see us! Orlando to Sarasota is quite the drive!
I had Zeltiq done about 8 weeks ago, my results are phenomenal!! I'm so happy that I can finally fit in to my "goal" jeans!! I must say the office is beautiful and the staff is so friendly and professional. I would definitely go back there for any other procedure I decide to do. Overall the practice was GREAT!!!
I've been going to SkinSmart for the last three years for routine facial treatments and botox. The staff is extremely friendly and professional; I recommend them to every one of my friends and family members. Most importantly, Dr. Callahan is one of the only Doctors I've felt completely comfortable with. I trust her work 100%.
Just retired and moved to Sarasota along with my skin cancer. Needed to see a dermatologist right away. I saw that Dr. Callahan was very qualified and ranked high. I got an appointment within a week and have been going on a semi-regular basis ever since. Office atmosphere was friendly and professional. All of the personnel I came into contact with were extremely nice and even knew my name.I would recommend her in a heartbeat.
I have been seeing Dr. Callahan for 6 or 7 years and she is the best dermatologist I've ever had. I have had various skin issues over the years, and she has been so helpful in easing my worry and always prescribes effective treatment. I have also seen her many times for cosmetic reasons, including Botox and facial fillers (Restylane and Juvederm). I have been to many dermatologists and plastic surgeons for these types of treatments, and they were always in a hurry and made me look like a horrible version of myself. Dr. Callahan takes time and looks at my like a photographer would look at a model. She knows how to enhance a woman's beauty without giving a "plastic" or "frozen" look. I have sent many friends and colleagues to Dr. Callahan and they all have been very very enthusiastic about how wonderful she is and how much better they feel about themselves because of her cosmetic treatments. If you are considering seeing a dermatologist for any reason at all, I strongly recommend making an appointment with Dr. Callahan. She is the best!
My husband and I have been going to Dr. Callahan for some time now. Dr. Callahan has always been extremely professional and she is extremely experienced. Her staff is also easy to work with.
Dr. C. was recommended to me by a friend.This was the best recommendation she could have given me...Her work is outstanding not to mention the loving staff she has working for her.My own physician did not know I had surgery on my face until I told him (in 3 spots) and showed him. He too was very impressed with the outcome of it..I would recommend Dr.C. to anyone. All I can say is THANK YOU DR. CALLAHAN.
She is kind and caring and in my 83 yearsof life the best dermatologist I ever had.

I would never go to any other Dermatologist than Dr. Callahan. The staff is very professional and courtesy from everyone employed. I have never seen a Dr's office so clean and comfortable for the patients. Dr. Callahan offers numerous procedures, and everyone is completed in great care of the patient. Dr. Callahan & her staff is the best around!Sonya Barnett

Service was great so easy to talk withanswer every question i asked i thinkshe should be the number one Dermatologyin Sarasota Fla. She is a perfect tenin customer service.I got excellentresult with my service. Mary Bailey.
Dr. Callahan didn't seem at all friendly when I went in for skin cancer screenings. I felt that all she was really concerned about was the cosmetic side of her practice. She couldn't wait for me to switch over to Brooke for the cancer screenings.On my next screening 4 months later Brooke found cancer. Dr. Callahan did Mohrs surgery and during the interaction with her during the surgery I found her very cold and unfriendly.Out of the blue she said she didn't think I would need a skin graft. I was startled since it was never brought up before the procedure that it would be a possibility. The medical assistant was very friendly. I do think Brooke is much more caring and actually interested in her patients.
WONDERFUL EXPERIENCE...TRAINING AT MAYO CLINIC AND CLEVELAND CLINIC...REAL PROFESSIONAL WHO SHOWED EXTREME PATIENT CARE...STAFF EXCELLENT...HIGHLY RECOMMEND
Dr. Callahan & her staff are wonderful! Ive had several different procedures done through her office and everyone was so friendly and professional. The procedures went very smoothly and many times produced even better results than I expected! I had several questions before each procedure and Dr. Callahan took the time to answer each one, until I felt 100% comfortable about what to expect through the whole process. Without a doubt, she is the best dermatologist Ive found in Sarasota.
Honestly,,, worst Dr. I've ever had to misfortune to deal with.
