Dr. Barlow is a fantastic dermatologist. He used Mohs surgery to remove melanoma from the side of my husband's nose/cheek, and did an excellent job. The melanoma discoloration didn't look very large, but the tissue removed was the size of a half dollar by the time the borders were clear. Dr. Barlow did an excellent job with plastic surgery and skin grafting. He was referred to us by a dermatologist who was retiring. Both my husband and I appreciate his skill and his caring manner.

Dr. Barlow and his staff were excellent. Two basal cell carcinoma tumors removed by his Moh's surgery and the entire experience was great. He has a wonderful bedside manner and was everything I would expect from this professional doctor. Thank you Dr. Barlow. I hope I never have to visit you again but if I ever do, I will definitely see you again.

I would not recommend doctor barlow. I was very unhappy with h how he treated my skin issues. He removed a squamous on my left temple. Then I got it on my left cheek. Had to go to go to another dr keep telling his office it was back. Couldn't get me in. Prior to this he did a abrasion on my forehead. He said it would remove discolouration. Did not at the same time he pierced my ears they punched through. Cost me my own money 800.00 because it was cosmetic. And it was a complete failler!

I have seen Dr. Barlow for several years now. He is the best cancer removal Dr. that I have encountered. All of my incisions are not noticeable as if nothing was ever removed. He is the only Dr. that will remove cancer areas from my body. Other doctors leave horrible scars. Thank you Dr. Barlow.

Dr. Barlow is so kind and understanding. He is a great listener and so patient. He also has a sense of humor which helped me to relax during a minor procedure on my face. He was recommended by my dermatologist who was retiring. So now I have been a client for over five years and very happy with his expertise.

Wanted the MOHs procedure on squamous cell tumor. I faxed records in and they contacted me the following day and scheduled my appt. for the next day. I called my insurance co. to see if I need pre-authorization only to be informed that dr. staff had already contacted them. Upon arriving at the office, I was greeted my super friendly staff and waited less than 10 minutes before being called back. Dr. Barlow explained everything well - procedure and staff ran like a well oiled machine. Awesome!!!

Excellent. He has an experience and professional staff. Easy to make the appointment and the surgery was on time. He is very experienced, great bedside manners, and I have lots of confidence in what he did. Definitely one of the best.

This Physician seemed well seasoned and he did not rush me through my appointment like most Doctors do. He took his time and addressed all of my concerns. The office was clean and seemed well organized.
