Dr. Barrera is ok. Reason I go to him is my pcp referred me to him, but inasmuch as I consider him a good doctor, his personality is so-so. His staff is not friendly and calling his office is a mission. To make, reschedule or cancel an appointment is very difficult. The parking in the 87 avenue location is terrible! It takes a good 15 minutes to find parking on the street; horrible!

DR B. has to my experience good knowledge of his practice but is surrounded by some terrible staff (not all of them though) For example some administrative problem not of your concern nor from your fault may have you kicked out of the office. With no medical care nor medications. This kind of treatment is not suitable for humans, and certainly not for the ones in a bad mental or medical state.
