I would not ever go back to this dr. I came in for adult acne- the dr spoke with me for less than 15 min- did not come close or touch my face and tried to just prescribe very harsh chemicals.Also expect to receive a bill and the only method of payment is a check or write in your cc number- what kind of office doesn’t allow online payments?

She was helped and prescribed me something for my skin. I thought I was going to be able to ask about more than just ONE skin issue. Keep a note of this if you are making an appointment here. This kindasucked because I waited over a month to be seen to only get help with one thing which was disappointing. I haven't used the medication yet so if that works it would be worth it I guess.

Dr Barbosa was great to work with. I had a skin cancer scare, and she was very comforting and professional throughout. I was able to get in very quickly. She spoke with ease during the exam, making a situation that could be embarrassing pass quickly without any discomfort.

Dr. Barbosa is very professional and down to earth! She will explain in detail any procedure that you may have, and all of your options. I highly recommend her as I've seen other dermatologists that did not offer good solutions to my skin problem.

My appointment lasted about 5 minutes and she didn't ask for any background or history and immediately prescribed a topical cream. She sent the prescription to a company I had never heard of and said I should call to give themmy information, but the company did not take my insurance. I called the office 4-5 times leaving messages with the front desk and nobody knew what I was talking about at the front desk or relayed the message to Dr. Barbosa. I never received a call back or answers to my questions, and therefore never received my prescription.

She was a nice, it seems she has the same diagnosis for everyone, her speech on my "acne" seemed so robotic, she didn't even stop to catch her breath. Can't say much else except she seemed to rush but had noproblem recommending treatments that weren't covered by insurance or recommend me coming back for another appointment.

Although I thought that Dr. Barbosa was an excellent doctor, I waited 2 months for feedback on my lab results even after repeatedly calling them and being made promises. The first time I called was about a week after the appointmentto see if they had gotten the fax from my physician... To my surprise, they didn't seem to know what I was referring to but promised to request the blood work again (I found out later my physician HAD faxed them over within 24 hours) and provide results ASAP. Second time I called was about 1 month after my appointment, they still seemed surprised by my request but one of the nurses assured me that they would get results by end of day and latest by the next morning... Nothing. The third time was the beginning of this month. I called and said that I'd been trying to get a hold of lab results for a couple of weeks and again, was promised results within the hour. I did get results that day but to wait TWO MONTHS for simple supplement advice seemed like a waste of effort. Good doctor but the office and operations could use some help in customer service and timeliness.

I had a great experience at this office. I arrived 10 minutes early, filled out my paperwork and relaxed with water. I was taken in right away to go through my history with a PA. Dr. Barbosa is one of thosewomen that you are glad to know - whether or not she's your doctor. Honest and disarming, which are great characteristics in a doctor. She made me feel like I could just relax and be myself, which is nice because I'm usually a little stressed at a doctor's office. Can't say I hope I go back, but if I need to (heaven forbid), I wouldn't go anywhere else.
