What People Say About Dr. Joseph Barber, MD
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful

For 1/2 hr they sat in a room without any books or distractions, merely medical equipment they were not allowed to touch. They were hot and cooped up and without an apology for keeping us waiting, he told my kids to sit and be quiet and physically placed them in their chairs. My kids were so woundup at that point they didn't listen to him and he was very irate about it. Told me to get a professional in the house to communicate with me via headset to tell me how to handle my kids when bad.

Dr. Barber is an excellent pediatric neurologist. We were relieved to find him. Living as we do in a rural area, we thank God for his expertise! Dr. Barber is very knowledgeable re:ASD &ADHD. He also maintains a blog to help parents. During appts, he encourages parents to voice memo the time so we don’t miss anything discussed! No doctor does that! He is very direct and encouraging, but he doesn’t sugarcoat issues. It is refreshing and honest. I wish all were like him! Highest recommendation!

Dr Barber was very rude to me and my child. He was very impatient with my child and he degraded me to the point that I actually started to cry at the appointment. I had never felt so worthless from a doctor and it was totally unexpected. I was expecting to be helped and informed on issues my child was having, but instead I was left feeling helpless and confused. Why is he a pediatric doctor if he has terrible bedside manner? I will request to never see Dr Barber again!
