  • Dec 24, 2019

    no waiting, Dr Bar and her staff were courteous, efficient, answered all my questions. First class !

  • Dec 24, 2019

    There were many people in and out of the room doing something. The doctor introduced herself and did the procedure and then left. We felt we were not given a lot of information as to what was happening and what to expect. We felt the staff was so use to doing a procedure like this that they were on automatic pilot. We had read the brochure before and now feel it should be updated. We believed I received great care but felt a little confused.

  • Dec 24, 2019

    Provider was very polite, friendly and professional; though seemed a bit rushed and didn’t really explain my options (just offered). I await to see what my scar is like, before I can comment on skill.

  • Dec 24, 2019

    Very good experience. The treatment was very good as was the work done by the medical team.

  • Dec 23, 2019

    Really fast service, lots of help provided and very little time with provider. Room lights prevented eye contact. Over all good felt like a production line. Tape in my hair braids not real fun, application of bandage with gloves not an easy task. I would return if the need arose.
