Dr. Tarbet is among the best. A master injectionist (she teaches it). She is very warm & caring. Always honest, she tells me if i don't need something. I won't go anywhere else for fillers. An anesthesiologist acquaintance who works w hundreds of cosmetic surgeons said Dr. Tarbet has an artistic flair the others just don't. If/when i need a brow or facelift I'm going to her. Chris does the prp injections and I am getting phenomenal results! He loves his work & it shows. Super friendly guy!

I visited Dr. Tarbet's office in spring 2016. It was my first time considering any type of cosmetic injection and I had visited two other offices for an under eye belotero injection. Dr. Tarbet's nurse injector made me feel so comfortable and was very good at working to address my concerns. After 20 years of under eye bags, I was so happy to get the injection particularly before a big college reunion! I am considering the restylane injection and will certainly go back to Dr. Tarbet's office!

I have Graves disease. My eyes have been so irritated and even the skin around them. So happy that I found this practice. I called and got in to see Chris the next day. I am feeling so much better. He had solutions that no other doctor has been able to address. I am very thankful for this group of doctors and their kindness.

I have been seeing Dr Tarbet for over 5 years now. I have seen her for facial cosmetic surgery & ongoing treatments. I absolutely love her. My results from her work have been outstanding.I receive compliments all the time. As a medical professional myself, I know her surgical skills are exceptional. I admire all the work she has done for me. She is wonderful in the office setting. I always take note of who the doctors & nurses seek out for their own care--Dr Tarbet!!

Recommending her to EVERYONE! The Amara technician, Dori, was amazing. The front desk is fabulous. Her nurses and just everyone was FABULOUS! Her fellow, Dr. Jacobs, is exceptional, and of course - Dr. Tarbet is beyond belief. I truly adore and value her.
