Nationally rated Top Doctor and considerate staff show details Nationally rated Top Doctor and considerate staff
by Sam on Apr 10th, 2015

I don't understand the other reviewers. This is a large practice. Sometimes I see Dr. Callahan and sometimes a well-qualified PA or MA. I went to another well-know dermatologist in Sarasota for 5 years and never once was I treated by him. They are a busy practice - that usually means they are good at what they do. Anyway, it's a beautiful place to go, with very kind and considerate staff. Dr. Callahan is professional and highly qualified. The medical staffers I have seen seem very genuine.

The medical staff did nothing I requested - referred me to cosmetic side of practice.

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 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.

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.

May 11th, 2012

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.

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

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.

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.

Doctor more interested in doing more extensive surgery than patient deemed necessary. Hard to see M.D. herself--Nurse practioner given a lot of responsibility. Not pleased with attitude of M.D.
