I am 3 weeks post surgery and doing great. Dr Barr is amazing! He’s kind, compassionate, patient, a great listener, and a surgical blessing! I am grateful to him and his team for putting me on the right road to success and for going above and beyond. Thank you Dr. Barr!

Review of Dr. Barr

Dr. Barr was very patient and kind with our family. He explained things clearly and is a wonderful doctor. I would highly recommend him to anyone, he does excellent work and the follow up is superb. His nurse is also amazing, if you are looking for a GREAT neurosurgeon for spinal issues, he is the one to see.

Review of Dr. Barr

- in Virginia |

Dr Barr is a humble, sweet human being, and an absolutely amazing neurosurgeon. His surgery left me absolutely pain free, with no need for the first pain pill!! Two levels were operated on, deflation and laminotomy. He was very patient with me and my family, and took a lot of time explaining what was going to be done. Five stars isn’t enough.

Review of Dr. Barr

Have suffered from neck pain for years. He was the first to listen to my concerns with an open mind and actually give me a plan to help. Would give 6 stars if it would allow!

Review of Dr. Barr

- in Fayetteville, AR |

Dr. Barr performed a posterior cervical laminectomy with fusion and instrumentation on my neck 3/2/16. I think he did an excellent job. I had pain at first, as you would expect, but my recovery went smoothly. Dr. Barr gave me frequent checkups with x-rays, and I recovered completely with no problems. Dr. Barr was always professional and kind. I recommend him highly. If I were to need spinal surgery again, I would definitely seek him to be my surgeon.

Review of Dr. Barr

- in Rogers, AR |

Would listen to the complaints of pain my husband had after fusion and not do anything about. He is still in pain today. Would not give him a rating for workman's comp. Had to go to another doctor for a rating that was in with workman's comp so didn't get a good rating. 2 years later and he still can not work and is in chronic pain. The staff is the worst. They don't keep the workman's comp nurse out of the room for privacy. The women in the front office are also nasty and no help.

Review of Dr. Barr

- in Siloam Springs, AR |

Dr. Barr was great from start to finish. My back was injured in a car accident, requiring surgery. He explained the entire process to me and my wife several times, ensuring we had no questions. At first, he was going to try to allow me to heal without surgery. This just shows that he won't do it unless it's 100% necessary. Complications arose and he did what was medically necessary. I knew I was in good hands.
