Dr. Garett was very on task examining all my concerned spots. When a mole came into question, she quickly addressed it and it was sent a biopsy to be accessed. She was friendly and patient continuing to examine as I asked her questions and she investigated. She answered all my concerns. I scheduled my next appointment for next year.

Very nice people! Customer service is amazing, very friendly! We went in for a consult and got the issue treated immediately in the same appt. The only issue was that the numbing agent wasn’t given enough time to really fully activate before the procedure. But everything was perfectly fine right afterward and we went on our way.

The wait to see Dr. Garrett was over an hour. I felt the receptionist ( with the white glasses) was very slow and inattentive. However, Dr. Garrett’s demeanor and personality was just what I was looking for. So, five stars for her ( but maybe not her office staff).

Dr. Andrea Garrett was so professional. Listened well, asked questions, and gave feedback/solutions based upon the assessment vs assumptions. Highly recommend and will now more proactively schedule my check-ups!

Today was my very first visit to a dermatologist. Dr. Andrea Garrett was extremely pleasant and seemed very knowledgeable. (My conditions are a little bit hard to know if the treatment will work til we try.) One negative: She was running *very* behind. I was not called back to an exam room until slightly over an hour past my appointment time. I don’t know if that is typical for her practice or a one-off. My appointment was at 2:30. (Afternoons always seem to get backed up.) I wish they could have notified me by text, though, because I was really pushing it to get there on time and if I hadn’t taken a sick day it would have been a problem with work. Either I would not have been able to stay (thus taking more time off) or putting strain on my office. However, she acknowledged her lateness and thanked me several times for my patience. I understand things happen, and she listened to each of my issues and I did not feel she was rushing me out. I even forgot to ask about something and she came back in. Hopefully the lateness was just one of those things. I know if I ever have an urgent problem, I hope that the doctor’s office can fit me in, so I try to understand when I’m on the other side.

Loved Dr Garrett and her PA! Not happy with front desk that didn’t even ask for my insurance info and billed me a self rate 4x more than my 40.00 copay.
