Dr. Barak was efficient, friendly, and completely on-task. Can't ask for more!
Exam was short but complete--both doctor and med assistant were very professional
I wasn't in the office very long.. Dr. Barak gets straight to the point.. I live 45 minutes away.. I'm happy with my decision by choosing Dr. Barak over doctors in my area.. I will be going back for a follow-up.. and if anything else should appear.. I will continue to see this Dr.

Friendly office staff, easy to get an appointment, nice doctor. Will go back if we need a derm. again.
The doctor was professional.
The office was super overbooked and the wait was outrageous. I was called back at 3:20 for my 2:45 appointment. Front desk staff was friendly and helpful. Medical assistant also very friendly, but new I believe and really not familiar with the job. Dr. Barak was very nice, but did not really give me any new solutions or direction for treating my psoriasis.
Dr. Barak and his assistant Mike were fantastic. They took their time with my issue and showed interest. I can't say that for most doctors lately. My entire experience was excellent!
Excellent Dr! The visit went smoothly as expected!
I really like Dr. Barak, but the wait time for PDP is ridiculous. I've now been in 3 offices and always wait at least 20 minutes past my scheduled appointment time to be called back, and usually another 10 to be seen. It doesn't seem to matter whether I schedule an early morning, midday or late afternoon time; this always happens. It's really frustrating considering patients would never get away with showing up so late.
This was my first visit. Everyone was polite and professional. Procedures were explained to me before they were completed.
Very Positive! Will definitely go back for my annual checkups!! ??
I felt very comfortable. Staff was friendly. Dr Barak and the PA that first examined me (Heather??), were very nice. I was seen within 20 minutes. Seems to be a busy office.
Thorough, professional and pleasant. Dr. Barack and his staff handled my needs efficiently.
I thought he was very courteous And thorough I would definitely recommend him.
I searched online for a Dr with great credentials and a Dermalotogist that was more about skin care, health and possible Cancer as opposed to those who promote themselves as " nip and tuck" docs. He was excellent, thorough, asked all the right questions, made you feel comfortable and said all the right things. The Staff, PA.. Were exceptional too
I was a first time patient and everyone from the time I walked in the door till I left were very personable. I was at complete ease as I felt I was being treated professionally and compassionately. Thanks
Everyone was very kind and professional.

Straight to the point exam. . Was very detailed in explaining things
Dr. Barak and his staff were extremely well-mannered and professional. They were thorough, open to questions and really put my mind at ease. I would certainly recommend them to anyone seeking a warm and friendly dermatologist and staff.
Excellent! Dr. Barack was professional in every way along with all of the support staff who made my visit a stress free, enjoyable experience. Deb D.
Very professional and very knowledgeable! Felt comfortable on first visit and will return!
Dr. Barak takes the time needed to talk to you about your concerns.
Good first experience. I am confident he will fix me up.
felt comfortable with him. knew what he was doing and was direct with his treatment.
Wonderful staff........great doctor....took his time to explain everything.
I arrived a few minutes late and apologized for being late. The receptionist assured me that it was okay and asked me to have a seat. I waited for a short time before being taken to an exam room. After seeing the assistant to the doctor, I then waited a while before seeing the doctor. It was an appointment made with not much notice, so maybe that is why I waited so long. I don't remember waiting for that length of time for my previous visit. Very knowledgeable staff and they even gave me a coupon for my prescriptions knowing that they could be pretty pricey. I feel assured that this will be my choice in the future for any skin concerns I may have.
Dr. Batak was exceptional - a consummate professional and absolute delight!! Highly recommended!! Danielle his nurse was wonderful!!

Doctor was friendly, offered a lot of advice for an additional issue I brought up with him, ordered me an Rx, was very professional. Waited a little longer than I had hoped, but somewhat used to this with any doctor's office.
Very professional doctor good doctor's visit
