    Hello. I really enjoyed my time with not only Dr. Bar, but the whole team. It was first time I've ever had the procedure done and they were very clear and very diligent about all the work that they were doing and they got me out of there as quick as they could but obviously took good care of me, and I would definitely hope I don't have to do it again. But if I did I would come back. Thank you.

    My providers were Anna Barr MD and (hope I have this correct) Jeff Overman MD in Dermatological Surgery. Both were very helpful in explaining what the procedure would be like and their work bore that out. At the risk of overdoing it, my gratitude for their care is absolute. I doubt, however, they'd be able to deliver such outstanding work were it not for their very kind, professional and competent nurses and assistants. I recall an Allie, Irene, "Z"; other names have unfortunately slipped my mind, but to all I send my thanks.

    I have had Dermatology surgery from Dr. Bar. I'm guessing half a dozen times at least and she's always done an excellent job and always been very agreeable while I'm getting work done and the results of always been great and I I guess I never like to go back because that means I've been exposed to the sun too much, but when I do go back always have a good experience and and the results are always wonderful. So thank you Dr. Bar.
