Dr. Barbosa listens! She asks great questions and listens to you.
Dr. Barbosa was great. She talked me through everything she would be doing and explained the reasons for every action.
I found her to be to the point, transparent about pricing when writing a prescription, friendly, and totally non-judgmental.
Timely, professional and was able to perform needed procedure onsite and during appointment.
Wonderful doctor. Not only was she very attentive but also made me feel very comfortable and put a smile on my face!
She was so friendly and down to earth and answered all of my questions. I will be returning!
Dr. Barbosa is so knowledgeable and friendly and she puts you at ease right away.
She was very informative. I highly recommend her services.
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 them my 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.
Dr. Barbosa was so kind, and she answered all of my questions thoroughly. She didn't rush through my consultation at all even though it seemed to be a busy day with a lot of other patients waiting.
Always very professional and nice.
Would absolutely recommend Dr. Barbosa!! Outstanding service by her entire staff.
Smart, professional, and great sense of humor while taking my ailment seriously. Dr Barbosa explained every step thoroughly and stopped to make sure I understood. It was a great experience.
She was excellent and very knowledgeable. I loved how she treated me and my few pimples like we all that matters in this world lol
She was very informative and very respectful.
my visit with Doctor Barbosa, was amazing she was professional and knowledgeable about the things I needed to help clean up my skin.. Also, she made the visit enjoyable.... I would recommend her to others.
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 no problem recommending treatments that weren't covered by insurance or recommend me coming back for another appointment.
Dr. Barbosa is a great! She addressed all my questions and was able to offer solutions and showed she cared about my health issues.
The doctor was very professional and knowledgeable. The receptionist were very nice and personable.
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 appointment to 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.
This was my first visit with Dr. Barbosa. She was very personable and thoroughly explained everything to be done at this visit with detail and understanding.
She was honest in her evaluation.
Very professional thorough and personable.... I am excited to have chosen Dr. Barbosa as my Dermatologist.
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 those women 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.
Dr. Barbosa was wonderful! I am very happy that I found her--the appointment was for an initial screening and she was thoughtful, thorough, fast, considerate and answered all of my questions. She was awesome!
She's great! Knowledgeable and nice.
Informative. Very knowledgeable. She speaks plainly in easy to understand instructions and explanations. I appreciate that she was not pushy for selling her products. But told me to do my research and what the research she had on certain products was. Really nice and straightforward.

I really enjoyed my appointment with Dr. Barbosa! She took the time to get to know me personally and spent time with me. I never felt like she was rushing or trying to get me out of there. I went for a yearly check up and she took the time to look over my entire body. I felt like she was careful and truly looking at my skin. I am very happy with Dr. Barbosa and will be going back.
Dr Barbosa was very helpful and friendly. It was like talking to one of your girl friends that would be upfront with you and would only tell you the truth. When my best friend recommended Dr Barbosa and I saw her on "Windy City Live".....she was exactly the same....professional, honest, and seemed to care about me. Now, I see why my best friend of 48 years raved about her.

Dr. Barbosa is one of the nicest and friendliest doctors I have visited. I've never had a dermatologist before so having someone that I felt comfortable with was very important to me. My expectations were satisfied! I was called at my appointment time but did have to wait 20-30 min in the actual room. Front desk staff was also a little cold and unfriendly but otherwise no major complaints. Happy with my experience overall!
Great visit and well run office even though they did not have my appointment which I am not sure on which end that error occurred.
She was very personable, explained things well and was helpful in recommending sunscreen products. I waited a little to see Dr. Barbosa but was in and out within 45 minutes.
Dr. Barbosa was very personable and gave me her undivided attention. She apologized for running behind schedule.
She was very attentive and answered all the questions I had. She took her time to explain my diagnosis and medication she was prescribing.

She's like a caring mother - always willing to listen and provides you with the best course of action for you. She really takes her time and you can tell she really cares about you. It's a wonderful feeling that you don't receive from many doctors today. Thanks!

The doctor was really great. Although I had to wait for over an hour to see her (was not very happy) she was great. They were very apologetic about the wait which it better. Overall I think the wait must have been a fluke and I would highly recommend the doctor and the office.

I liked Dr. Barbosa very much. She addressed my questions about Retin-A without trying to upsell me expensive treatments I don't need yet. And she gave me a coupon so I could try the medication for free.
She was extremely nice and accomadating. I needed to get my second appointment within the month due to insurance issues and she made sure it happened. Great experience, and definitely will make her my new dermatologist!
Dr. Victoria is so easy to talk to and personable. She immediately made me feel comfortable with her bubbly personality and knowledge of every issue I came to see her about. Her anesthetician was available right away & I got everything taken care of in one office visit. Superb.
I had a terrible experience with my past dermatologist. I found Dr. Barbosa online and read all the wonderful comments online and decided to give it a try even though her office is an hour away from where I live. To get that kind of service and attention I'd be willing to drive anywhere. She is amazing and very caring. Something you don't see in Dr.'s nowadays.

Excellent, Dr. Barbosa is easy to talk to and very professional.
She was very friendly and professional, I was in and out of the office right away.
This was my second visit with Dr. Barbosa and it was as good as the first. She covered everything that we had previously gone over and was patient and focused on me throughout the visit. My skin is better than it has ever been in my life and I owe that in large part to her willingness to listen to my concerns and her ability to make the correct Rx decisions for me as a individual.
Dr. Barbosa was wonderful. She was very friendly and made me feel at ease. She had great knowledge and I would highly recommend her!!
First time ever seeing a dermatologist and it was a great experience! Right when I walked through the door.

Will definitely be making my 2 mo f/u with her.
I just loved her beside manner and her professionalism!

Just as important, her team runs like a well choreographed performance. I was in an out in a flash and never felt rushed.
Great experience. Very sweet lady.
She is very professional and the staff is great. I did not wait long at all once I got there. She takes her time is very thourough and makes sure she answers all your questions before you leave. I was very satisfied with my visit.
I was really impressed. Her knowledge was comforting. I don't know how the treatment will result, so I will post a review of that later, but her logical, professional approach was refreshing because I didn't feel like she was trying to set me up to buy some product like many derms I've been to.
I love Dr Barbosa.Nothing to say except she awesome, excellant,and I would defintley reommend her I already have .

Dr. Barbosa is awesome. Seriously. Who knew going to the dermatologist could be fun?
She is patient. Explains the concern or not so concern. She is conservative which I like most.
So impressed that I plan on "keeping" her! AND I already recommended her to several friends.
First visit and found Dr. Barbosa to be friendly, making me feel very comfortable, gave very professional advice and was willing to find the time to fill a request I made regarding my skin.
Dr.Barbosa is very knowledgeable and very easy to speak with. She made me feel comfortable and very easy to ask questions. Her office staff are also friendly and I can't overemphasize the smiles!! They make a difference and I most definitely will recommend Dr. Barbosa to anyone needing professional dermatology services.
Everything I read about her on this site was completely accurate. My wait time was non existent, which NEVER happens at the doctor's office. She was friendly, personable and warm...again, rare to find in the world of medicine. The staff is really friendly and helpful and they called my prescription into my local pharmacy before I even left the office, making it ready for pick up immediately. I'm a little disappointed I don't need to go in for a follow up! One of the best visits to the doctor I've had in years.
Dr. Barbosa was great-so friendly, funny and very helpful! She made me feel at ease right away. The rest of the staff was also very nice and friendly. Highly recommended.

OMG I LOVED DR.BARBOSA! She really knows her stuff. I read some of the reviews on here about her being real friendly and I AGREE! Her assistants are really nice as well. For one of my conditions, I've been told for YEARS that there was nothing that could be done by other doctors..but Dr. Barbosa thought of some things that could work and THEY ARE!
shes a very cheerful lively lady
She was great, very personable and easy to talk to about any problems. Highly recommended.
