Dr. Garrett was very nice. She came into the room fairly quickly. She did very well with my five year old and made her feel comfortable. She explained things well and answered my questions. Only negative was that we waited in the waiting room for about 35 mins before being called back. Luckily I had things to entertain my two young children. Overall, very pleased.

I don't know when I've met a more caring doctor than Dr. Garrett. She made me feel comfortable and that my concerns were very important to her. At a time in my life where due to my age I've not been taken seriously Dr. Garrett listened and my problem was resolved quickly. The whole staff is wonderful and I sure appreciate my whole experience there. If you're looking for an excellent dermatologist who cares about her patients call Dr. Garrett. You won't be disappointed.

Dr. Andrea Garrett is wonderful! She is always very personable, professional, thorough and efficient in her patient visits, often addressing and resolving an issue right then at the initial appointment. My husband also received treatment, Mohs surgery, from Dr. Garrett last Fall and his results are incredible! You cannot tell he ever had a small surgery on his forehead. Dr. Garrett is an excellent Dermatologist! We highly recommend her and her staff at Forefront Dermatology.

Dr. Garrett is courteous and very thorough in my examinations. She is able to quickly work on any issues I might have during the same office visit like skin tag/mole removal and has an easy schedule for me to book appointments with her ahead of time or for follow up visits.

Dr Garrett listened to my concerns, the main one for that appt. was for my hair. She checked my scalp thoroughly, asked many questions about my medical history, and asked permission to get tests results from my primary care physician. I really felt like she was going to try to find the problem of my hair loss. I also have skin cancer and difinitily will return to Dr Garrett for my next body check. She is a great Dr and has a great bedside manor (demeanor) J Benick
