Allen resident

Always courteous and thorough, Dr. Barrows tends to run a little behind because his patients want to talk with him. He does the Mohs surgery, which is less painful and it instantly removes skin cancers. His patients are predominately males over 50 years of age.

Five Stars

I found Dr Barrows to be a very personable and competent physician. When I found he had opened another office in Rockwall I went there as that was closer to home. I saw his PA, Amy Jones. What a wonderful experience! She and her staff not only made me feel very comfortable, but I found her to be extremely knowledgeable. She was thorough, compassionate and had a genuine interest in me as her patient. She took great care to make sure I understood my treatment. I also had some Botox administered by her (which I have wanted to try for quite some time) and am so pleased with it! She has excellent skills and I highly recommend her. Dr Barrows is very fortunate to have Amy at this practice. I am a recurring patient and will see no one else.

One Star

I went to Dr. Barrows because I had three warts that I tried to remove with at-home wart remover, nothing worked. Instead of trying less invasive methods Dr. Barrows decided the best way to remove one of the warts was to cut it off. This proved to be wrong! It did infact get rid of the wart but I now have hundreds of tiny warts all over my knee from this along with scars from having them removed. Don't go here at all find someone else who isn't so quick to cut on you unless you just like having scars.

One of the worst Doctors / Dermatologist!!

One of the worst Doctors / Dermatologist I have ever been to! Making an appointment: pulling teeth is easier. Left four messages and did not get a call back. When I did get a hold of them, they were unable to verify my insurance. Decided to pay for my appointment and was given a fee for the procedure. Got to the office at 7:30am for a 8:10am appointment. The incompetent front office staff was unable to have my information entered into their system until past my appointment time. Got called for my 8:10am appointment at 8:30am. Dr. Barrows needs to learn how to interact with his patients. He came in looked at the two spots on my leg and said, you need to come back for the procedure. Asked him how long the procedure takes, he said 15 min. He said he can take care of one and I will have to come back for the other. I asked why and was told, he only does certain procedures on certain days. I explained to him that since I was a doctor myself, my schedule is booked out for several months and since I was already here and it only take 15 minutes why couldnt he take care of both the same day. He was sarcastic and said I DONT HAVE THE TIME I explained when I made the appointment, I was clear about getting both the spots taken care of. He shrugged his shoulder with a I dont give a _ _ _ _ attitude.I realized why he was unable to do both the spots the same time while I check out. I was asked to pay $260.00 while the fee I was told was $150 and would be extended a professional discount. Upon inquiring why, I was told every tissue sample is sent to path regardless.All in all, bad experience, dishonest practice, hostile environment and the worst Dr. ever! Never again..
