She was the first one to listen to me and think outside the box. I had lost 30# and couldn't eat. She was the one after 18 months to diagnose the bowel obstruction and fixed it. My surgery overall went well and am doing well now. I would see her anytime I felt needed. She listened to me and took my well-being at heart.

I selected Dr. Barr on a whim because she interned at Mayo Clinic. I felt I was in brilliant capable hands immediately and didn't even seek a 2nd opinion. I highly recommend her and her nurse, Chris, and will be forever grateful for their service to women. Happy with my results and thrilled to recommend Dr. Barr to my loved ones
