Care Philosophy

As a dermatologist physician and surgeon I am first of all concerned about the patient's overall general health. Once that has been considered, I carefully listened to the patient's specific concerns whether it be a problem with the skin and hair or nails; or concern of a cosmetic improvement in appearance desire. I emphasized the work listening because I wanted to address the patient's specific concerns. This of course varies from person to person. I have 35 years of experience and can helpRead more

I have been seeing Dr. Barsky for approximately 9 months, he treating nodularis/squamous skin cancer on my skin. Up until a month ago I was happy with him and his treatment. However, on 5/18 he took out squamous on my right leg. Followup on 6/1 to remove sutures. On 6/4 I called to have him look @ my leg which was badly infected. Told me to continue Aquafor. The next day, with swelling and infection I called him and he said he couldn't help me because he had a very sick aunt....(?) WTH?

The doctor and his staff have been extremely helpful to me with a variety of my issues. Despite having a busy practice, I?m almost always able to schedule an appt. within a few days of my calling and receive a response to my email or phone questions often the same day. I?ve consulted many MDs in my life, and it?s rare I?ve found one as knowledgeable, accommodating, and concerned as Dr. Barskey. Wait time is a bit long but well worth it.

Dr. Barsky and his staff are knowledgeable and are good people. I went today and received shots for my alopecia areata. He explained to me the treatment and other things I could do to improve hair growth. His price was the best around. Other offices wanted to charge me 4 times as much. I will be back again!
in Hanover park, il |
He was very unprofessional! His breath smelled like he just ate sushi and sake for lunch! He didn't even give me options of different products because my insurance wouldn't take certain ones. He stated that is all he can is antibiotics! Stay away from this doctor... He is horrible and lazy with his patients.

Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.
