I was very pleased with my experience in working with Skinsmart Dermatology. I had to have Mohs surgery to remove basil cell skin cancer and Dr. Adams performed the surgery. All of the staff was very pleasant to work with and they all worked to make me feel relaxed and comfortable throughout the process. They prepared me ahead of time on what to expect and then what happens after the procedure. Dr Adams took the time to walk me through his plan for the surgery at my pre-op visit and helped me feel very confident I was in good hands. The surgical process went perfectly and the Dr. even followed up with a phone call the next day to check on me. I’ve never had a Doctor do that for me after a surgery. I’ll even mention they have a very nice waiting room and well designed decor. Thank you Dr. Adams and team!

I would like to take the time to Thank the team at skin smart dermatology. My doctors gave me a referral biop. Long story short it was the wrong field. Your team took the time to explain the error on there behalf. Not knowing my backstory. I have been sick for almost two years and have seen a lot of doctors and practices. Your teams professional and diligent work made me feel like their are still good practices in the world. I apologize for the inconvenience of the mistake my doctors secretary made. Instead of making me feel stupid. Which I have experienced many times in this past 2 yrs. Your team made me feel welcome and still took the time to give me care and check my skin anyways. The team took the time and care even though this mistake occurred. The diligence and care of the fantastic team at  Skin Smart Dermatology. Not only is it a direct reflection of the lead physician and office manager. It gave me a sense of hope. Not only is there still not just good but above reproach and awesome doctors  and doctors teams are out there. I look forward too my check in a year. If only I could have you and your teams excellence  as my primary care team.

I’ve been going to Dr C for years – she and her staff are absolutely awesome! I’ve always be extremely pleased with my outcomes :). I’ve had cosmetic injectable procedures – painless I might add, and worth every penny! I’m scheduled for an ultherapy procedure next month and am confident my outcome will be fabulous- I’m so excited! I highly recommend!

Kate Weed is awesome, I can’t thank her enough. Great staff!

Coolsculpting works!! After being told by two plastic surgeons that the only remedy for my fat deposits in my midsection was surgery…I found Coolsculpting and it is easy, non-invasive and does the job without any down time.

I have a low pain threshold and a fear of needles, so I was very apprehensive about my lip filler procedure. Dr. Callahan and her staff at SkinSmart Dermatology were very understanding and helped to quickly put me at ease. I experienced no discomfort and the procedure was a breeze. No pain, minimal down-time, and great results. I couldn’t be happier with the outcome of my lip procedure. Dr. Callahan is very detailed and thorough, an artist in her field! Thank you Dr. Elizabeth Callahan, you are amazing! Since this visit, I have returned multiple times for additional services and remain highly satisfied!

Dr. Callahan is fantastic. She is the most talented dermatologist in my experience, both on cosmetic work and cancer screening.
She is conservative and does a beautiful job with cosmetic work you may want done. On occasion where I had to have biopsies, she leaves little to no scar. Her staff is lovely too! Office is beautifully done and comfortable. Highly recommend.

Review SkinSmart Dermatology

“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.”


“Thanks to Dr. C and her staff once again   Best anywhere!”


Wow & thank you! I love my new lips. Very pleased with the results. I have had similar procedures in the past with lots of bruising, but not this time. Your staff was great as well. Thanks again for the extra treatment – that was very kind.


“I just want to let you know how grateful I am for Dr Adams. He is by far the most thorough and kind Dr I have run across in my nearly 70 trips around the sun. I hold him and his family and this practice and all who work there in the Light daily. I will continue to refer him to anyone and all I speak with about dermatology. God bless you all.”


“I just wanted to thank your entire staff for treating me with the utmost care and respect. All around wonderful experience and I will gladly recommend your company to anyone who asks and forever be a patient!! Thank you again!”


Hi Dr. Callahan,
Just wanted to express my appreciation for your office in the way of Botox and fillers. I look so much better.


Thank you so much for being so though in your exam of me in January- to find on my forehead something I did not even notice- and turned out to be basal cell. Dr. Adams and everyone here have been so professional and kind. Blessings to you in your work in helping others. ”


“Dear Dr. Callahan,
We just wanted to express our thanks that we found SkinSmart Dermatology.Your office staff, patient assistants are all pleasurable to deal with.
As you know, both my wife and I underwent MOHS treatment yesterday and we both felt that Dr. Adams did an outstanding job. Much of that satisfaction is also attributable to the staff that he works with.
Congratulations, you have a first class operation”.

“Dear Dr. Callahan,
It has been 12 days since you did a filler procedure on my upper lip. I wanted to tell you how delighted I am with the results! I had two days of swelling and then I could see the amazing improvement. Thank you to you, and your excellent staff. I would recommend you highly!”


“Dear Dr. Callahan, 
Just wanted you to know how very pleased I am with the results of my recent visit. My mouth area looks great! And there was NO bruising — just a little swelling around the lips. Thank You!”


“As a true skeptic, cynic: I approached my procedure with caution. As the PA Kate Weed fully explained what was going to happen, I relaxed. It went very well. The swelling has gone down, the prescribed medications were generic and I expect full healing soon. As an old guy, I was very surprised to see a well-organized, modern style office with a great staff.”


“Within 30 days of using Viviscal, I had to purchase new hair clips because my hair was so thick!”


“Staff is always friendly while remaining very professional, both over the phone and in the office. These criteria, along with the expertise of  Dr. Callahan, allow me to give the highest rating.”

“Dear Dr. Callahan,
Just thought you would like to know that at the Albuquerque Airport, on our return from a visit to Santa Fe,  the security people did not believe I was 75 and made me take off my shoes and jacket! Your work is terrific!”


“Everyone was not only super friendly and efficient, but also very knowledgeable and helpful. I came here to fix a bad Botox job I got somewhere else and I am so glad I did. I won’t go anywhere else.”


“Every experience we have had with Dr. Adams and his staff has been outstanding. Having a doctor that calls the next day to ask how I am doing is exceptional. The atmosphere of the office is pleasant. We are always treated graciously. We recommend Dr. Adams highly.”  – Donald

“Castle Connolly rates Dr. Callahan as a top doctor in the Sarasota-Manatee area. I agree. I would strongly recommend Dr. Callahan.”

“Dr. William Adams did a MOHS surgery on my face and he did an excellent job. Not only did he do an excellent job but he happens to have a great personality which comes through loud and clear…..The procedure was great……the stitches were great……the result was great…. He called me the morning after to see how everything was and that was appreciated…..Please pass this along and thank him….Last week I had the Blue Light treatment and that went very well……Thanks so much.”

“Dear Dr. Callahan,
I had Radiesse injections in my cheeks on September 12. I am amazed at how natural my cheeks look. It has made quite a difference in my facial structure.
You are an artist with a needle.
Sincerely yours,”

“Professional, thorough, reassuring, advice accepted with relief and peace of mind. I would put my life in Dr Adams’ hands in a heartbeat. The offic​e staff live radical hospitality as well. What pleasure in this day and age.”


“Incredible service from start to finish. Come all the way from the UK for my treatments. Wouldn’t trust anywhere else.”

“Both Dr. Adams and Dr. Callahan do excellent work. As a patient of Dr. Callahan for more than eight years I can count on her skill in corrective surgery following the MOHs procedure for skin cancer removal. I was also pleased by Dr. Adams’ willingness to accept phone calls at any hour should a problem occur following any procedures he performed. He is a welcome addition to the professional staff of SkinSmart Dermatology.”

“I always look forward to my once a year appointment. The people are so nice and make you feel comfortable. The office is so clean and bright. I always feel good when I leave no matter what I’m there for.”

“Everyone in the office is always so friendly. I have been coming here for years and it makes such a difference how the staff treats you all the way to the doctors. Excellent in explaining things and making sure you understand. I have always been treated with respect and never felt I am putting them out. The care is outstanding. You won’t be disappointed!”

“Excellent experience! Dr. Callahan is a multi talented and well versed physician. I look forward to returning to the office in the Fall. Thanks!”

“Dr. Adams is a gem in every possible way. He is upbeat, warm and friendly, highly professional, and an excellent MOHS surgeon. Each of my visits demonstrated how outstanding and caring he is with each of his patients. I would recommend him with the highest praise to any one I know. I already do so when my friends ask who did the MOHS surgery and where is he located!”


“Dear Dr. Callahan,
Words cannot express my gratitude. Thank you for your kindness, wisdom, 
expertise and generous nature. You are a most special person and an 
excellent physician.”

“Everyone was helpful and professional. I felt comfortable during my appointment and I was ecstatic at how quickly the procedure went. I will definitely recommend SkinSmart to friends and family. Thank you again!”


“I am totally satisfied with SkinSmart. Dr. Callahan is the third dermatologist I have had in the 8 years we have been coming to Florida in the winter, and she is the only one that I thought did a thorough examination. She is also the only one to actually take a look at all of my records concerning the melanoma surgeries that I have had.”

“Excellent experience. Prompt and professional treatment. Dr. Adams and his assistants were great. Highly recommended.”


“This place is a treasure of health care (specifically dermatology). Could not have been a better environment, friendlier staff with extraordinary bedside manner, or greater professional talent than performed by Dr. Callahan. Kudos to all from a 110% satisfied patient.”


“It was an excellent experience. I was a bit nervous never having experienced anything quite like this but everyone made me feel relaxed. Dr. Callahan was very studied and precise in her preparations as well as during the procedure. Nursing staff also great. It’s only the 2nd day but following the instructions I was given, all seems to being going well. Thanks Dr. Callahan and the SkinSmart staff.”


“Dr. Adams is great and your staff! All friendly and caring! We just moved here from Indiana and would recommend your office to anyone! Thanks !”


“Dr. Adams is an excellent addition to the Staff at SkinSmart. He recently completed two procedures for me, one a MOHS surgery and an excision. He is professional, very personable and did a great job to make sure that I was taken care of.”


“I recently met with Dr. Adams for the 2nd time to check the progress of my condition. I was prepared with numerous questions that I quickly ‘shot’ at him, thinking he would rush through our visit, as many doctors do these days. Instead, he patiently answered all my queries and addressed my concerns. I never felt like he was trying to manage our time. When he made a prescription change he gave me samples to try to make sure that I could tolerate and benefit. Much appreciated! I left feeling like all my issues were covered and I was on a good path to recovery.”

“The doctors and staff are always very friendly and professional. I actually enjoy going to the Dr. when I have an appointment at SkinSmart Dermatology! The doctor takes his time and accesses all of my concerns with compassion. They also have a wide variety of products to purchase for skincare and and to protect you from the sun. It is the best dermatology office I have ever been to!”


“Dr. Adams and his entire staff did an excellent job during my MOHS surgery procedure. They kept me informed though out the procedure and insured that I was comfortable the entire time. I was most impressed by the level of professionalism demonstrated.”


“I was extremely pleased with the results that Dr. Callahan provided. The staff are very professional, friendly and helpful. I am relieved to have found a qualified professional for my skin and beauty needs…not an easy thing with the vast number of persons providing these services in our community. Looking forward to my next appointment!”


“I love Dr. Callahan and her staff……..everything ran smoothly and everyone paid attention to me when I needed it. Even paying my bill was a nice experience. Most of all I feel Dr. Callahan is like an artist of the face. I am glad I found her and she will be my doctor of choice in the future too.”
Linda -2013


“As usual, the service and attention to detail were superb. SkinSmart is a model for how physician’s offices should operate. Smooth and efficient, while extremely friendly at the same time. The work that Dr. Callahan did on me was far above my expectations – she is absolutely the best!!! If you are a guy over 50, and don’t want to look like it, go see Dr. Callahan – you will be pleased with the results.”
Richard – 2013


“It’s not that often that I experience the ‘WOW’ factor, but my recent visit to Dr. Callahan was just that. A couple of different fillers of her recommendation injected in the ‘right’ places have given me a refreshed look. My husband told me I look younger. Dr. Callahan is a physician, but she’s also an artist. Before and after pictures taken prove that. Application is so important. There was a miniscule amount of bruising, very little concealer needed. I was totally amazed as that was not my experience with a former physician. I am one happy patient. :-)”
Susan – 2013


“Excellent in every way. I can not imagine a better experience. Dr. Callahan is warm and friendly and at the same time extremely professional. I would not hesitate to recommend this doctor to anyone.”
Romana – 2013

Katherine – 9/29/13

“I had been putting off a very necessary appointment to see a dermatologist because I was scared to death. A  neighbor recommended SkinSmart and promised I would be comfortable and impressed. My experience couldn’t have been better. I was blessed to get an appointment with Dr. Adams who couldn’t have been more kind, gentle, understanding, and patient. His assistants were the same way, as well as the staff members with whom I was in contact. I wouldn’t hesitate for a minute recommending SkinSmart. Thank you so much to all of you!”
Susan -2013

“The purpose of this letter is to provide you my long overdue appreciation for the outstanding work you did in virtually eliminating some very unsightly veins on both my cheeks. Your medically sound and creative choice of solutions virtually eliminated them. I was truly amazed the next day when the veins had disappeared.”

“I love the Restylane® treatment I received from Dr. Callahan – and the BOTOX®, too. It is without a doubt the best thing I have ever done for myself.”

“Thank you, Dr. Callahan, for all your hard work on me. You are so talented and I feel lucky to have found you.”

“Dr. Callahan is so easy to talk to. She is very knowledgeable about both medical skin problems/diseases as well as cosmetic improvements/interventions. She provided thorough, understandable explanations of every procedure – with realistic expectations. I like you guys and I will keep coming back!”

“Thank you for your TLC!”

“I want to thank you for all of your support, kindness and diligence in helping to find a solid diagnosis and treatment plan for me. I also thank you for walking me through the entire process and taking my fears and anxieties away. You are truly a blessing!”

“You and your team recently removed a very large basal cell carcinoma from my 85-year-old father’s nose. After you removed the cancerous growth, you allowed me to watch the reconstruction procedure using tissue from his cheek. I was in awe of your surgical perfection and realized how important your training in the Mohs procedure was. Fabulous!”

“Thanks for seeing me yesterday and putting my mind at ease about my nose. It was good to see you again and to experience first-hand your patient centric care. Keep up the great work.”

“I was very pleased with SkinSmart Dermatology and the professional and timely manner in which I was treated. Your office is very inviting as well as efficient. I did not have a lengthy wait, for which I am most appreciative. I have no qualms recommending SkinSmart to others.”

“We’ve been residents of Sarasota for 32 years. We have found your waiting room the best in town: exquisite surroundings, great coffee machine, great snacks, and a splendid support staff. Thank you for making our visits so pleasant.”
Vincent and Veronica

“A BIG THANK YOU for a most delightful seminar last night. It is so nice to walk into SkinSmart Dermatology and have someone always call me by name. I’m sure it is because I am there so much, but the welcome is always a warm one. You all have made my life much better and I congratulate you on such a professional and realistic approach to the aging process and our egos.”

Dear Dr. Callahan and Staff,
Just wanted to thank you for a most enjoyable and informative evening last night. Everyone made me feel very welcomed from the moment I arrived. It is evident that everyone has a passion for what they do and are willing to do what it takes to help each client. I applaud you because this seems to be rare nowadays. Thank you again. I look forward to seeing you all again when I have my Sculptra procedure done in March.
