Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Barsky "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 help"
