So I was a patient and I called to have my daughter see dr Callahan and scheduler said she won't see her for her acne problem. I said its very necessary for a doctor to see her and they refused. My daughter can only be seen by a physicians assistance. Excuse me but I pay to see a doctor ! We have federal employee healthcare so payment was not an issue . They refused. So this is how dr Callahan runs her business. Probably bills insurance companies at her rate. Not impressed
We share the expectation in ensuring the best care for our patients. At SkinSmart, this begins with matching the right professional to treat specific skin conditions. Dr. Callahan focuses on surgical and cosmetic care, while Dr. Adams and our physician assistants work with acne patients daily, giving them the experience and knowledge to utilize the most effective treatments. We appreciate all feedback, so we ask to be contacted directly to further address any concerns.

My skin hasn't looked this good since 5th grade! I'm a 70 years old woman who's been plagued by acne for 40 plus years, leaving me with scars & hyperpigmentation. After one Dot laser treatment my skin isn't perfect but I can now go out without makeup. Go in with realistic expectations & discuss them honestly. I think you'll be pleased.

I had a brown spot removed on my shoulder which was done quickly. After it was done, she said you'll have a white scar instead of a brown spot. I would have stayed with my brown spot if she had told me this prior to removing the brown spot. I did not appreciate this at all. The white scar does not tan and is much more noticeable than the brown spot was. Boo.
