I have been seeing Dr Barrera for 15 years. He treated me for breast cancer and has been taking care of me since. I cannot say enough good things about him and his staff. Extremely kind, attentive, patient and detail oriented. The same is true of his lead nurse, Pat. I highly recommend Dr. Barrera and his staff.

I've had a terrible experience with him. I came to him for a "minor" surgery to get a cyst removed in July 2015 and its now March 2017, I am still having complications from his operation. He massively understated how long recovery would be, how this "newer" method of surgery he would do is better than the "older" practice, and failed to mention how I have to carefully monitor my marks the rest of my life to prevent infection. My friend had exact same surgery with him and had terrible experience.

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.
