      I went to see Dr. Barrera for a consultation on a very complicated problem. While I was waiting for him, his nurse took all the information about mu problem. About 10 minutes later, Dr. Barrera came in and he was great. He had taken the information and evaluated it and referred me to specialists who were better qualified to deal with my case. He had also printed out all the contact information on the doctors. Dr. Barrera went way beyond his duty and I will always be thankful.
