Dr. Barr provided medical oncology for me in conjunction with my surgical oncologist. From our first meeting, Dr. Barr was forthright, no candy coating, but very positive. His team is efficient, caring and has a mystical way of keeping track of all of everything that's going on. As treatment progressed, Dr. Barr took the time to get to know me and my lifestyle. This was invaluable when frontline treatment ended and we needed to discuss next steps.

Dr. Barr takes time with patients. He makes calls to other doctors to set up appointments for his patients. Going through cancer is awful, Dr. Barr is very supportive.

Dr. Barr has been caring for me for over ten years. He is knowledgeable, kind, warm and looks at the whole picture, not just a diagnostic number.

After 8 years of going to see Dr. Barr as a primary care doctor, I called this week and was told he no longer sees primary care patients. I was not informed of this in any way, and am really irritated of the complete lack of courtesy to a long standing patient such as myself.

Dr Barr is great - he spends time with you, carefully explains the tests and exams needed, and really just does a great job of making you feel cared for. However, I had to call back half a dozen times to get test results, which is extremely frustrating! No one wants to have to stress over genetic test results! Overall I would absolutely still use this office for my cardiology needs, I just hope they get things straight for returning results!
