He was very nice and personable. I'm a sucker for a great bedside manner. I had to drive an hour to him because dermatology is limited with my insurance but he was worth it. My only complaint is that his officeis so busy I need to wait 3 weeks to have a biopsy done because it's the soonest available. I would have liked for it to be done right then and there to save me another 2 hour round trip or if I had to make another appointment I would have liked for it to be sooner than 3 weeks. The main front office lady was nice but the scheduler I seen on my way out (much older lady) was extremely crabby, didnt sympathize with me and told me "oh well. This is the only appointment" when I asked if it was OK to wait 3 whole weeks for a biopsy of what my paperwork stated could POSSIBLY be life threatening skin cancer. P.S. I worked as a medical assistant at a dermatologist office and we always did the biopsies same day.

I went in for my 1st derm consultation due to a small clear bubble I had on my face. I truly thought it was muluskum. He stated it was cancerous and needed to be removed right away. I felt rushed andunclear of the out come. And unfortunately, I got a staff infection in the surgical area. It was not a good experience. I still have a noticeable scar many years later.

Dr Jay and his team are awesome! It was my first visit today, I feel comfortable talking to him about my issues and concerns. He is very knowledgable and experienced. He's very efficient and thorough with his patients, he took picturesof my skin condition, and took lots of time to explain what I need to do to stay healthy and avoid problems in the future, and answered all of my questions and concerns. His assistant was wonderful, along with the whole staff. -Marie

I always have a good experience when I see Dr. Barsky. He is very knowledgeable about conditions of the skin and skilled at treating them. At my recent visit, he listened to all of my concerns and thoroughly answered my questions.I appreciated that he was able to effectively take care of some issues at my appointment even though it was scheduled as a consultation. In addition to a reasonably priced facial wash solution that I was able to purchase at his office to combat some of my skin problems, I left with printed information on simple steps I could take at home to further improve my skin, along with a recommended list of readily available over-the-counter products for enhanced results. I have been to other dermatologists but continue to believe Dr. Barsky is the most knowledgeable and skilled at taking care of my skin needs. No matter the problem, Dr. Barsky effectively treats it. I leave happy with healthier skin, but also a little smarter on how to keep it that way.

I have recommended Dr Barsky to 3 of my friends. We all LOVE him. He always is up to speed on your treatment plan and adjusts as needed. Amazingly, he remembers all of his patients. I hadn't seen him in 16years and he recognized me immediately, I have changed my last name and hair color since then. He is a lifesaver, my acne is finally under control. I feel more confident and like my face. Staff is polite and knowledgeable. No issues with insurance and billing.
