The service here has greatly improved since Deborah was hired, the last manager Rachel isn't there anymore. The staff is friendly and I would give them a try.

You will WAIT every time, extremely rude office personnel and I was told they are in violation of Federal Privacy and Civil Rights laws, HIPAA violators!! Unless you want everyone in town knowing what procedures you've had done, take your business elsewhere!

He takes 3 visits to remove anything. He never does it completely. Five times (x 3 each time = 15 visits) for what should have been a routine 5 visits.

Dr. Novatt and his staff are outstanding! They are professional and personal. Dr. Novatt is very knowledgable and has a calming bed-side manner. He took time to explain my issue and offered the options and then gave me his recommendation. I felt safe and I trust his judgement. In addition to the removal of this carcinoma, I had several pre-cancers removed and also had botox injections. All very painless and precisely done. I highly recommend this doctor to anyone seeking a Dermatologist

Dr. Novatt and his female partner are geat! they have found many
skin cancers on me and Dr. Novatt is the best injector for fillers in town. The office staff is wonderful, with the small exception in regards to the PA, i had to see her on one or two occassions, I found her to be rude and less than attentive to my concerns and in the end on both visits she was so uncertain of herself she had to call in Dr. Novatt for help. Stick with the doctors.....

I was treated three times and it transformed my face helped improve wrinkles on my chin,lips, cheeks and around my temples. Dr. Novatt is an artist, highly recommend him.

I wanted capillaries removed with laser. This doctor had an assistant hold my hand to deal with the pain. He also said that he could "see" the veins disappearing, but I did not notice a distinct difference. I went to another doctor, and while I was still dissatisfied with the laser there (Hello, pulse dye lasers, anyone? They are the only procedure that works!) I at least was given numbing cream to deal with the pain. I am shocked that this doctor did not use numbing agents, but relied on holding on to someone!

I??d made an appt. with Dr. Novatt, a Santa Barbara dermatologist, for Juvederm filler injections. After a 55min. wait I was asked to leave and return another day as the doctor suddenly needed to see another patient. It??s hard to imagine a sudden dermatological emergency pre-empting an appointment for which I??d already waited an hour, but I was cordial and re-scheduled.

When I returned the following week and asked Dr. Novatt to fill in areas under my eyes, he recommended Juvederm. Unfortunately, his aim was off and the areas were asymmetrical (my eye area is symmetrical). He also left me with a raised diagonal line below the intra-orbital area on 1 side.

I hoped it might improve over time but it didn??t so I made a third appt at which I pointed out the filler??s diagonal seam and the nurse agreed it was plainly visible. She was dismayed and asked if I??d massaged the area to even it out following the injection (that had never been recommended to me).

When Dr. Novatt finally appeared after yet another lengthy wait, he too observed the error but refused to rectify it unless I was willing to pay for additional Juvederm. His explanation: Juvederm is an expensive material. I simply Ieft his office but find his lack of patient consideration inexcusible.

I went to see Novatt and on my first visit he noticed a little blemish on my back. He assured me that it did not have the characteristics of a melanoma but he said that it looked strange and he did a biopsy. You guessed it. He called back a couple of days later and had me in the same day and he took out the cancer in one session. I have a lovely scar on my back and the knowledge that I needed to watch my skin constantly. I visit Novatt three times a year. He advised me to tell all my brothers and sisters and to caution my children that they also need to beware this issue. Ask me how I feel about this guy - I owe him my life. He is tops.

Dr. Novatt is proactive, very caring and available to the patient. My disorder is rare and he was knowledgeable about it and even performed further research for me. Abby T.

Dr. Novatt is a very good doctor who has helped me with various procedures. He helped me (and other family members) during several dermatology visits I scheduled and always with professional care. I liked his directness and he has a good sense of humor too. He is very knowledgeable in his field and it shows. He knew all the answers to my questions.

I highly recommend Dr. Gary Novatt for your dermatology needs.

PROS: Excellent dermatological care
CONS: none.
