Patient Testimonials

“My Daughter has been dealing with hormonal acne for a few years now, and through the process we have met with many people from other dermatology practices and none of them ever worked out, it was very discouraging.  Then, about two years ago, we met with Sheryl Porter and she is absolutely amazing!!   My Daughter and I both felt comfortable with Sheryl from the very first visit, we knew without hesitation that she was going to be the one to help us.   She always takes the time to listen to me and my Daughter and talk about whatever we are there to take care of.  As a mom, it means the world to me that she takes the time to talk with my Daughter, she never rushes the conversation to get started with the procedure.  She has a very nurturing way of making my Daughter feel comfortable, relaxed and empowered to get rid of the acne.  On top of how caring Sheryl is, my Daughter’s face looks absolutely amazing!!!  Sheryl is very knowledgeable and she genuinely cares.  I have recommended Sheryl to my friends, and I will continue to do so.  We feel very blessed to have met Sheryl, and we truly look forward to seeing her each time. ”
– Tina S.

“From Doctor nurses front desk staff all five stars. Absolutely wonderful. You will never feel so comfortable in any of the doctor’s office. He is a true professional. Highly recommend.”- Linda M.

“AWESOME! I had a terrific and positive experience with Dr. Sarah Croft in the Clearwater office of PH Dermatology. I originally went to the office for a skin check, which turned up a couple of small issues that Dr. Croft was able to handle quickly and efficiently with a minimum of discomfort. After my great experience with the medical side of it; I consulted her about some cosmetic surgery. I had DEEP marionette lines on my face – it looked like I was constantly frowning! People actually ASKED me why I was always in a bad mood…that’s how harsh the lines were. The face that was depicted to the world was not who I really was. Dr. Croft suggested using fillers to make adjustments to different parts of my face to give me some definition. The whole procedure took under an hour and the results were INSTANT. I cried because it looks SOOOO good! I feel like a new person (I know that is awful to say) – but I am able to present myself differently to the world, and in turn, the world reacts differently to me.

Dr. Croft has a great bedside manner, a sunny disposition and is caring, concerned and knowledgeable. She talked me through the procedure to let me know what she was doing. (For me, that really helped assuage my fears.) Dana, who is Dr. Crofts assistant, is exactly the same way – they make a terrific team that work really well together. Dana quietly and competently is at Dr. Crofts side to assist. They are both funny and sweet, but totally professional and truly made my time in the office a pleasure.

I would definitely recommend the Clearwater PH Dermatology office and Dr. Croft and Dana for any medical/cosmetic needs.”

“We needed new service since Diagnostic Clinic quit supporting dermatology.  First visit and found a very professional, well run operation, with friendly staff and excellent medical service.
We will be back.” –  Susan W

“Dr Tharp is AWESOME! Very welcoming and communicates in a “non-clinical” manner throughout the appointment. Appointment was right on time —- I absolutely HATE setting an appointment only to wait 30+ minutes in a room!  The staff was all very friendly and helpful too.” – Bill C

“Dr. Amy Ross is a true genius. I had Skin cancer surgery and within 10 days of the surgery, I barely have a scar and I’m healing perfectly. I was very impressed with the cleanliness of the establishment as well as the friendly attitude and caring of the staff. All in all… And over-the-top experience!”-  George A

“A teaching facility here let’s me know that all staff, procedures and techniques are state of the art and cutting edge. The waiting room is very pretty and relaxing with the beautiful water cascading wall. The staff are very nice, friendly and reassuring. Wait times here are minimal, they tend to run close to appointment times.”– Pam G

“This was one of the most pleasant medical appointments I’ve ever experienced. I brought my daughter here and starting with the front office staff we were greeted warmly with genuine kindness.
Dr. Shutty and his team were welcoming and listened intently to my concerns. He was knowledgeable and professional and treated my daughter with gentle respect. We followed up two weeks later and the second visit was consistent with the first. TBH. I scheduled a mole check just so I can come back. #winning”–  Alyssa M

“I highly recommend Ashlee Kirkland for both Botox and fillers. I drive 45 minutes from St. Pete just to see her. She’s extremely knowledgeable about the different types of fillers, and not a one type fits all. She gives her professional recommendation while listening to your goals. She listens, she’s professional and she does phenomenal work. Friends and family have commented “your skin looks great,” without being able to pinpoint exactly what I have had done. I also had zero post op bruising, which was not my experience in another office. Thank you Ashlee, I HIGHLY recommend you to anyone in the Tampa area!”-Anonymous

“My first visit to this practice was a few weeks ago to have a suspicious skin lesion checked out. Dr Valencia examined it and felt it was benign, but wanted to do a full body check since i was a new patient. I ended up having two different growths removed at her suggestion just to be safe. The entire experience, from appointment setting to the actual procedure, was awesome. Such a great staff and Dr V has a great bedside manner! I tend to get anxious in medical settings but her and her assistant put me at ease. And they called the following week (as promised) with results. Great experience overall and I’d definitely recommend this practice!”-Anonymous

“There was a wait, which is always expected at an office, but most importantly, Audrey and her assistant were extremely kind, detailed, put me at ease.  I really appreciate that when seeing  doctor and their assistants/nurses.  10 out of 10 bedside manner!” -Anonymous

“Extremely impressed with my visit. Professional from the front desk to the nurses to the doctor. Dr. Valencia was my physician. Every procedure was done in a timely manner and I was informed of what to expect. I will continue to use their services and will refer family and friends. Dr. Valencia is my choice whenever I return.” – Anonymous

“I’ve visited several dermatology offices in the Tampa area, and PHD is by far the best. I’ve been coming here for about three years now. They are courteous, knowledgable, and accommodating. I usually see Ashley for all my services, and she is wonderful. She takes time to listen, and always gives valuable suggestions. I’m scared of needles, but I trust her completely. She is knowledgeable and experienced, so I never feel discomfort during or after my visits. They also followup after your visit if there are any concerns. I highly recommend PHD. ” – Anonymous

“From the minute I walked in I was greeted with such love and smiles which started for the best experience. Dr. Rinker took the time to listen to me and help me find a solution, we have a couple ideas in mind but the nice thing of it is it seems like she will help me find a solution and cares about giving me the perfect skin.  Thank you so much to the pH dermatology in South Tampa.” – Anonymous

“I received the most friendly welcoming at Palm Harbor Dermatology. As a new patient I was treated as if I was family. The staff was very friendly and professional. I had two procedures: one was performed by Ms. Ashlee Eberhardt and the other one was by Dr. Margaret Rinker, M.D. Both individuals were very professional. Dr. Rinker has angels’s hands. Before I knew it, she had done all the procedure and I did not realized she was totally done. I highly recommend this Dermatology Group to those looking for good doctors in dermatology. They were God’s gift to me! Ms Sheryl Porter who performed my facial on my first visit was superb! She informed me of everything she would be doing to my face. I felt as if I was among my own family. I highly recommend Palm Harbor professionals for any dermatology needs!”- Anonymous

“The front desk staff is very friendly and professional. The amount of time I waited to be seen was average. Not too long, but Anna is amazing. She is very knowledgeable, friendly, and takes her time with answering any, and all, questions. I never feel rushed and I truly believe she is passionate about what she does.” – Anonymous

“I absolutely love this office. My favorite is Sheryl Porter (Medical Aesthetician). She created a customized plan that worked for me. She does a AMAZING job on my face. I’ve had microderm and Dermaplaning and it has noticeably reduced my acne scarring. Thank you Sheryl for boosting my confidence and for the amazing job you do caring for my skin!” – Anonymous

Ashlee is very helpful and consultative and I highly recommend everyone from the entire staff!” –Anonymous

“I had struggled with acne and discoloration for years. Anyone who has dealt with skin issues knows how frustrating it can be. Then I was introduced to Sheryl.She made me feel at ease right away. She is informative, takes time to listen to your concerns and collaborates with you in order to choose the best treatment and maintenance program for your skin.  I have been a client of hers for over 6 years now and she has done wonders with my skin (and confidence). The staff is friendly and helpful and my interactions with the Drs and PAs have been pleasant as well. I am enjoying the best skin of my life now thanks to the staff here. So grateful!” –Anonymous
