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.
