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 pictures of 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

Today was my first visit with Dr. Barsky and it couldn't have gone better. He takes his time and doesn't rush at all. He explains everything clearly and he's so easy to talk to. I felt very comfortable with him and his nurse. I went to him for a second opinion and now I'll stick with him.

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 16 years 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.

Very personable, informative, professional and thorough. And so was his staff. He took the time to listen and interact more than most doctors do. I didn't feel rushed and he took care of my issues. I will see him again. If anyone else needs a dermatologist, I'll recommend him. I'm an RN which he was unaware of and I was more than happy with his service.
