5 out of 5 stars Tummy Tuck
Show More Dr Barnett is a straightforward lady with a great sense of humor; she doesn't mince words and she didn't blow smoke up my ass. She is very realistic about the procedures, and she didn't make impossible promises of perfection or try to sell me on anything. I cannot stress enough how much I appreciated that. She is also very kind and very open, and takes a holistic approach to healing and recovery. I felt happy and at ease throught my experience with her. She is highly skilled and has been doing this for a very long time, and it shows in her work: after I came back home, she referred me to a local surgeon for my follow-up care here in Washington, and when he saw my incisio, this surgeon of 25 years flat-out said that it was better than most of his. Dr Barnett is a lovely spirit and a fantastic surgeon. I am so glad that she did my surgery.
1 out of 5 stars Tummy Tuck
Show More My interactions were abrupt, with very little bed side manner. When I and others, asked questions, she appeared agitated by the questions, as though they weren't important enough to answer and did not want to go into any lengthy explanations. When a problem arose causing us to return after hours, specifically, my staph infection caused from her procedures, she made excuses for the problems and said there's no reason to cry or carry on the way I was or be upset, despite her decision on the spot to cut back into me on her office table, then she put her hands up gesturing, to play an invisible violin in front of me and my daughter and now husband, as if to say, she didnt feel bad for me or my pain at all. She's rude and abrasive at times and I would never send anyone back there for anything. Her staff follow her lead in unfriendliness. Some are afraid of the doctor their boss, and told us so. I have had problems ever since she operated on me. The doctor has not returned our calls to date asking for a time to show her my very unsightly massive scar , dimpling and new pains in my abdominal surgical areas. This is not a surprise after my entire experience. Never have I been treated so unprofessionally by a medical doctor or surgeon, ever. If I could turn back the clock, I would have gone with Dr Dreshen in Clearwater, paid more but have no problems and no deformity, like I do now sadly.Biggest mistake I ever made was thinking her Harvard credentials would someone make her premiere. She's definitely best retiring. This is true of her breast augmentations too, as she ruined the most natural complimented previous breasts, which I had her downsize, i now hide from the world. Overall, I would not recommend her for cosmetic procedures. Save your money and go elsewhere.
1 out of 5 stars Liposuction
Show More This doctor mysteriously disappeared at my 8 week check up revision redoing each and every spot I paid for through ATHENIX. This place is a clinic where a sales rep will be the first person you talk to. They do not do the surgery yet tell you that you have the best skin for each and every area you point out. The pictures are the same pictures used from City to City, State to State. No doctor at Athenix will or can take credit for a picture! They can't make you look anything like those pictures! If an Athenix doctor could not do their job the first time or the second time, it's pretty scary to think about a 3rd time. The revision I had made me look worse! I am pretty sure these are doctors practicing on patients before developing a skill. Mine had no skill whatsoever! I had a number amount of areas done, and none that had that much fat, and the doctor could not accomplish it. What she did manage to do is move fat around with the canula so that I have fat lumps and now need a tummy tuck and underarm skin removal. A doctor should know better. I had a doctor since say that he never does lower stomach lipo on a woman who has bared childbirth, no matter how decent the stomach looks, its been stretched before! Stay away from this place people!!! Go to a REAL doctor who had his or her own practice with their own before and after pictures! Its not the wand but the person using it. There really is a technique to this and Athenix is letting doctors practice. They don't care, you signed the paper work covering them. They know exactly what they are doing!
2 out of 5 stars Breast Implant Removal
Show More Overall I am very disappointed with my experience under Dr. Barnett's care. She is a very lovely lady with a friendly staff but in my particular case she proved to lack the knowledge necessary for me to have a good experience. I received an ex-plant via the axillary (arm pit) approach and while she did state she normally does this procedure under the nipple, she said she could do the procedure just fine as long as I could handle a little extra tugging. A 'little' turned into me feeling absolutely butchered and bruised/swelling beyond belief for what should have been a simple procedure. I have seen several pictures of other women who have had great results via this approach so there was no excuse for this abuse other than Dr. Barnett not knowing what she was doing with the axillary approach and not admitting it to me so that I could find a more suitable surgeon. I am very happy to have my implants out but there was no reason for my recovery to be as hard as it has been. I developed a large hematoma on my right chest and armpit area right away and was told by my regular doctor that this was due to an error during surgery. I highly recommend finding a surgeon who is extremely experienced in the exact type of procedure that you would like to have before trusting them. However, I would like to add that Dr. Barnett and her staff have been very helpful to me during my post-surgery follow up. Even though I was not happy with the surgical procedure itself, they gave me a same day appointment on the day I was having the most trouble with a hematoma to check it out and they have also answered any questions about my follow up care via phone and email which I am very grateful for. If the actual procedure had gone as expected, I would give her a much better overall rating.

3 out of 5 stars Liposculpture
Show More I did a lot of research and wanted to make sure I chose a provider who was not only board certified but worked as a cosmetic surgeon only. I had seen a number of doctors who did not have a background in CS and recently got certified and started practicing. I wanted to make sure my Doc was seasoned in this field and that's why I chose her. Her bedside manners are AWESOME, her staff sucks. They all say something different in terms of providing direction for after-care, etc. There's no consistency and it seems they are not trained properly to speak about these procedures. I will post name once I get into a better phase of my healing. Too soon to tell at this point.
