I really liked Dr. LaBarbera. She was very friendly, answered all my questions. Since I'm so fair skinned, I need to get a cancer screening every year, so am pleased to find someone I feel comfortable with.

She is a delightful person and an ultimate professional. I have skin issues that are very embarrassing for me, and I feel like I can go in with no make-up and show her without judgment or criticism. That's a genuine gift.Her diagnosis and treatment plans work for me, and I'm grateful for that.

I suggest going to any other dermatologist, TERRIBLE WAIT TIME, UNPROFESSIONAL. DO NOT GO HERE. I called for a refill on my prescription that I have from this office and they refused without another appointment. They had nothing available forat least 10 days. It has been 2 days since my appointment and my prescription has still not been sent in. I have called twice and they keep saying they are sending it it now. It is now Saturday and the office is closed, my prescription has not been sent in and I have to wait until Monday to contact the office again. I will NEVER GO HERE AGAIN.

My first appointment was good - with very little wait time and thorough, but my second appointment I waited 45 minutes in the exam room for the doctor and when she came it it seemed as though she hadn't reviewed mychart. She didn't remember where my skin issue was and I had to repeat myself several times because she kept getting the details confused. This might have been an anomaly, because I was very pleased last time, but if this experience is reflective of the norm, I definitely won't be returning.

I've enjoyed my two visits with the doctor. She has a fun personality and it's easy to interact with her. She performed a surgery on me before which went very well. This was a follow up visit and she did whatwas expected including freezing precancerous growths on the face. I certainly enjoyed the very short wait time.

I absolutely LOVED Dr. LaBarbera! Prior to booking, I looked through numerous doctors on Zoc Doc and found that all of her feedback was wonderful! After my appointment today, I can honestly say that she is outstanding and I will continueto go to her! She is kind, smart, understanding, friendly and makes you feel totally at ease. She didn't rush me and answered all of my questions! I would HIGHLY recommend her to anyone who needs a dermatologist.

Dr. LaBarbera is excellent. She is thorough and also, she is balanced. She eagerly educates a patient on a simple, low-cost solution (if relevant) to a skin problem. She listens well, responds well, and is willing to take a few minutesto educate a patient who wants to understand. She is easy and very pleasant to interact with. This was my second visit. That said, I experienced frustrations with the receptionist and one of the assistants. They are ill-informed about the uses and functions of ZocDoc, including the notes box and online form-filling. When I asked them to get hold of forms I had taken the time to fill out when booking the appointment, two staffers were dismissive and argumentative. More, they insisted on arguing in the waiting room where other patients were forced to overhear. In my view, staff improvement is needed regarding: a.) ZocDoc functions; b.) how to handle it when a patient disagrees with something a staff person has said; and c.) how to respect a patient's privacy when other patients are within earshot.
