It was my first time seeing Dr. Barber. I was very impressed with the amount of time he spent with me explaining my condition and treatment options. I highly recommend him if you are in need of an endocrinologist.

He has terrible office staff. Dr Barber does not go by the doctors creed "first do no harm"? Should he believe his staff (who had a lot to lose) or his patient?

Dr. Barber is a wonderful caring and thorough doctor. He ran many test, did an ultrasound of my thyroid, and gives great advice. He is kind and listens to you. I have had bad experiences with endocrinologist in the past. Happy to finally have a doctor who is kind and helpful.

not good will not listen to anything that you want to talk to him about and will just step in and come up with anything to tell you. The staff can not even do what you may ask them to do. Do not see how they are in business

Dr. Barber has been my doctor for many years and has saved my life with his excellent care. He is kind, and the top of his field. Dr. De la Garza, now retired, referred me to him and he has now accepted my husband as well. Thankyou Dr. Barber. The office staff are also excellent with the patient.

Dr. Barber asked how I had been feeling and if there had been any symptom changes. When I began to identify areas of concern, he interrupted and then spoke over me as I attempted to continue. Without exam, he told me that my issues were normal for someone with young children and that I was just experiencing being a mom. He then ended the appointment without explaining or even addressing any of the symptoms I had attempted to discuss.Interaction with the doctor lasted approximately five minutes.
