My only regret with Dr. Holcomb is that I don't need him for all my medical needs. He's pleasant, listens to me, treats me with respect, and I trust him completely. When I give him input about my condition, he actually listens and uses it, which not all doctors do! I hardly wait when I have an appointment. Can't say enough good about him.

Very disappointed. Doesn’t listen to you at all. No interest in finding out whats wrong with you. Uninformed about asthma and research that’s been out for years. Just throws the same meds as the family doctor gave you. Can’t believe I can spend a few hours on the internet and know more about what’s going on with my type of asthma than he does. Refuses to try and find out the cause of your illness.Gets flustered very quickly and then tries to push you out of the office. And gives you the same meds your family doctor did. Absolutely a complete waste of time. This guy is just a dispensary for the same meds your family doctor already have you. Keeps arguing with you that you need allergy testing when you have already had the testing done and the results are in front of him. Honestly one of the worst doctors I have seen

Dr. Holcomb took the time to listen to my mom describe her symptoms and the areas she was having difficulty with. He didn't rush her through her explanations and made her feel heard for the first time in a long time. He answered all of our questions and explained why certain medications weren't working. I can't rave enough!

I am an 85-year-old male who was diagnosed with COPD long ago and have seen a number of highly recommended pulmonologists over the years, but in my opinion, Dr. Barry Holcomb is head and shoulders over any of them. He is in every respect an outstanding and very caring physician. His staff is fine, as well. For these reasons, I do not hesitate to make this recommendation.

Finally, after 3 1/2 years a Dr. actually listened to my problems and I now have a diagnoses for cause of my cough. And we are starting treatment. The most caring (and pleasant) Dr. I have seen in YEARS. Only wish he was closer to my home.
