my husband had his lower hand shattered. Dr. Barragan told us what we needed to do and got him into surgery as soon as possible. He did a very good job and he and his staff were very polite at each appointment. I would recommend him for hand surgery

He took away a lot of pain from me in about 10 minutes. I had carpal tunnel problems begin in late summer and I struggled with symptoms for month. He was friendly and confident, willing to answer all of my questions, consider alternatives, but help guide me to the right decision. The surgery itself was fast and improvement almost immediate. I was very impressed and would strongly recommend him to others with similar problems.

He seemed angry and impatient when I would ask questions. Poor bedside manner. I asked my PCP for a referral to a different doctor for surgery on my other hand.
