Forefront Dermatology
Dr.Garrett was friendly and helpful when it came to my first visit at Forefront Dermatology- skin issues can be a sensitive topic and I felt relaxed and the environment was non judgmental which was great and something I value in any medical situation. The visit was quick and painless and she was able to not only diagnose but prescribe the necessary medications super fast while expertly answering all my questions. 10/10 experience and I would recommend Dr. Garrett to anyone looking for dermatological assistance. Thanks again!

Went to her at 13 years old and she was the main reason my hair has fully grown back. I am so appreciative of her. I sadly had to switch to a pediatric dermatologist to have someone specialized in my age range.
