You do have to wait a long time to see her but she was worth the wait. I found that she could come off as rude but she is trying to get to the source of the symptoms not just give you a pill for the symptoms. She will ask you questions a lot of questions. She will keep going until she finds the source of the pain. I really do not want a dr. that gives me a pill without knowing what really wrong. I had been to doctors for over a year and none of them even attempted to find out why I was in pain.

By far the worst doctor I’ve ever been to. She was very rude and very unprofessional. I had been waiting 4 months after being referred to her. Just for me to sit and wait in the waiting room for hours. And when I finally got to see her she told me she didn’t wanna hear about my problems and for me to pick just one thing for her to focus on. I tried to explain that I had been referred to her for multiple things. She told me she didn’t do what my Dr. told her to do. HUGE WASTE of my time!!

Dr. Barton is the BEST! I suffered with headaches for many, many years and she is the only doctor who ever spent the time to really help me. Now I live pain-free and it's changed my life.

Super thorough. More a total lifestyle approach - not a pill pusher. Stays current on the medecine. More informed you are on your condition the more engaging the doc.

Dr. Barton is not a very nice person!! I have nerve damage and all she wants to talk about is yoga. When I tried to tell her something else about my condition she said she didn't want to hear it. Sorry but that's not the way you talk to patients. Don't even want to give her a star I recommend that you seeing another dr than her.

Just went to the doctors appointment with my grandmother, this is by far the WORST Dr. she's ever seen. She is not concerned about your questions, you are NOT entitled to asking them, and she will not listen to you for anything. Even her staff think she's rude. She's confusing and has a very very bad attitude. Giving someone bad news and then not consoling or even trying to explain the situation to them is disgusting. Just bc you have the degree you shouldn't have the right to be a doctor.

Thorough. Took lots of time with me. Discussed diet, lifestyle, not just drugs. Looked me in the eye. Waited a long time to see her, but I got so much out of it.
