The only reason I chose this doctor was because I needed a dermatologist RIGHT AWAY to see my emergency, humungous acne popping up on my chin. He was the only one available the same day. Like what other patients said, he was SUPER short. The whole consultation lasted maybe less than five minutes. I felt rushed. Granted that it was acne and not life threatening and he probably has seen terrible acne or worse thousand times in his life. But I would still have liked to see a bit more care, concern and empathy from my doctor. I will not go back.

It was short, but he knows what he is talking about and made some good recommendations. Had to wait for almost an hour, but that was due to insurance, so not faulting Dr Barnett.

Staff in general was good. But I expected to get a better understanding of my condition and treatment, doctor only explained the medication he prescribed and how to use it(in literally 1min). I had to ask questions about my issues but the answers I received were just too brief and overall I was not really satisfied.

My father is 96 and a bit reluctant to see one more doctor but this went well. The freezing of spots on his head seemed to bother my dad a lot but the stinging faded in a few hours and there’s no alternative to having that done. The processing of him as a new patient was efficient and went without a hitch.

I saw one of his PA’s, Kelly. She was extremely personable and explained the procedure for a routine skin check. She went over what I should look for in my specific skin tone and freckles in a way that was easy for me to understand.

This isn't the first time I've seen Dr. Barnett. He has a great bedside manner, enters the exam room with a smile, a greeting, and puts the patient at ease. We went right to the issue of my visit, but before departing he conducted a quick exam to insure there were no other issues. Thorough, fast, easy going...he's a great doctor!

I would give this provider the least possible stars because it took over 3 weeks to get lab results when they had them back in less than a week and that involves a call every other day with zero return calls except after physically going into the office, then I didn’t get my results until I went into the office a total of 2 more times after the initial visit and even then it was difficult to get them to give me my results and they lied and said they had called me and left a message even though there was no call or message and the previous call had been a lie also because they had the results for over 2 weeks according to the stamp on the results

It was definitely the quickest medical appointment ever. The doctor was not personable and my 13 year old and I didn't feel comfortable asking follow up questions. I'm sure he sees people with conditions way worse than what we were in for, but if he wanted us to keep coming back, he didn't do a great job. We will see a different doctor for the follow up. I hope our experience is better next time.

This is my second time coming to this office and it has been as pleasant as any medical appointment can be!
