20/08/13 2 5 1 2 I found Dr Callahan and her nurse at the time of my service to not have an ounce of empathy. I have a severe needle phobia/panic attacks. I spoke with reception on booking and was assured that would not be a problem for the staff or Doctor. They handle this problem all the time. That was not my experience at all. I was made to feel like a 2 year old, the doctor leaving the room in a very rude manner which prolonged the panic. Would not recommend her for any services. Mainly I think they are just for expensive facial products and procedures. Compassion is no where to be found in this practice.

19/12/12 5 5 5 5 I am a women in my seventies who has lived in Sarasota for most of my life. Naturally my skin has experienced extensive sun exposure. I recently needed a dermatologist capable of handling cosmetic concerns and their solutions as well as any serious problems due to my aging skin. After doing research, I had selected Dr Callahan because she has the extensive training and experience to expertly treat any problems I might have. I felt that a women would be more understanding and sympathetic in dealing with a woman's cosmetic and medical dermatology issues. As an added plus, she is an animal lover, and is active in many charities benefiting animal welfare.

14/05/12 5 5 5 5 I felt very welcomed and that I was going to be taken care of. I just moved here from northern Indiana, and found out that my dermatologist there was a resident under her at the Mayo Clinic! I have a lot of skin cancer lesions. She and her staff are very qualified. I would (and do) recommend her ALWAYS.

21/06/11 4 4 5 5 My 90 year old mother went to Dr. Callahan for Mohs surgery to remove skin cancer from her leg. Dr. Callahan was extremely kind and helpful not only to my mother but also to me. She thoroughly and thoughtfully explained the procedure and she called us as a followup to the procedure to see how we were doing. The surgery was very successful and my mother is well on her way to recovery. I have to say a special thank you to Dr.. Callahan for her attentiveness. I would recommend her to anyone without any hesitation.

25/02/11 4 4 2 3 I did not feel cared about as a patient. I was rushed in and out. Understandably there were many surgeries scheduled, but that does not excuse poor 'bedside manners'. Dr. Callahan is skilled in surgery procedures, but I believe a second opinion would have served me well.  Respond
