I like Dr Garrett, however she is inconsistent in her personal interaction with me. Sometimes she is very social and sometimes just very perfunctory in her interaction with me and with checking my skin and dealing with my skin issues and concerns.

Dr. Garrett is knowledgeable, tentative and she seems to care genuinely about her patients. My skin has improved tremendously since seeing her! Also, her front staff are extremely welcoming and conversational which is a plus.

It was very confusing to make an appt. You still show a St. Peters office and when you call the # you get a recording. I called on a Monday and left a message. No return call as of Weds morning, so I got back on the Internet and tried a different office. I think I had to leave a message and wait for a return call. I do not like that. It would be better just to get a live person the first time you call. Then they had no appts in my county that were quick enough to address my skin cancer (my opinion), so I had to go to another county just to get prompt treatment.

Dr ran a little late for my appointment but she took her time with me and wasn't rushed. I was very pleased with her patient manner and her knowledge - she explained things clearly and welcomed additional questions.
