I recommend Dr. Barnett and his practice for a number of reasons. The staff are helpful, friendly and efficient. I used ZocDoc to book an appointment and I appreciate the use of of technology to manage appointments. Dr. Barnett was friendly and professional. He answered my questions without medical jargon, but without simplifying. He treated me quickly. He offered to send a copy of the results of my exam to my primary care physician. I have never had a specialist offer to do this before!

I saw Dr. Barnett for two different skin conditions and one of them needs ongoing monitoring & care. From my experience, I found Dr. Barnett to be a top shelf Dermatologist with extremely remarkable skills in diagnosing, treating and addressing my dermatological needs. While his medical/derma skills are the most important to me, he also delivered on all other aspects like taking time to explain, discuss and give thorough guidance to fully address my needs.

I originally came to Dr. Barnett for some psoriasis breakout, which he handled in a professional manner. He remembers me when I come in and always checks me over for new skin problems. I love the fact that if he spots a suspicious while checking me over, he will remove it right then and there. I also like the fact that he recognized that I was Jewish and always gives me the proper holiday greetings. I like his smooth demeanor and easy going attitude. I highly recommend him.

in Potomac, MDBethesda, MD |
I've been going to Dr. Barnett for many years. He's professional, friendly, smart and very capable. I've, luckily never had to schedule an 'urgent' appointment.
in Annapolis, MD |
I have been routinely going to Dr Barnett for the last +/-9 yrs. He effectively diagnosed a mole very early-on that turned out to be (fortunately) localized melanoma. Dr. Barnett while he is not a chatty person, which I actually like, he is very efficient during exams, as well direct and to the point and clearly a very competent dermatologist. He is not one to put you under the knife to check moles unnecessarily like some derms that hack off moles with every visit.
