Dr Barrett is an excellent provider that knows his specialty. I dont want any person doing Lasik on my eyes. He performed the lasik and it worth the money. He was open about the risks that could be associated. Can't think of a better person to trust with your vision

Dr. Barrett's time is my gift! I appreciate his patience in listening & answering all my questions! Instead of throwing a prescription at me, he gives me alternative natural remedies. I know my eyes are in great hands with Dr. Barrett's expertise!

Health Care is massive in the eyes of the patient. Dr. Barrett continues to add a personal touch to his quality of care. His staff are an extension of him. A professional and trusting environment... especially with dealing with a sensitive area as our eyes!????

Dr. Barret has a caring bedside manner while being a complete professional. He is kind, intelligent, and he is second to none. My questions were all answered with patience and confidence even when the office seemed to be quite behind schedule one day. His concern is 100% for his patients. I hope I don't need to ever see him again, but if I do, I'm glad it can be him.
