Quick note to say how pleased I am with the results of my cosmetic treatments from Dr. Callahan. The improvement is really perfect and very natural. I also felt respected and understood and I am a demanding patient. The entire staff was so professional and polite. The place is certainly a well-oiled machine. I was so pleased to get appointments so quickly. I am already planning another trip which include and tune up with Dr. Callahan. Thank you, Deborah Botox and Restylin patient.

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

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.
