Patient Reviews (1)
Erie, PA |
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!
