Dr. Barrera and his office are incompetent, unhelpful, and vengeful. I first started going to Dr Barrera back in around 2009 after my previous doctor, Dr Baloga, passed away. Barrera/staff have lack of ability to understand core endocrinology concepts. He didn't help me with my complex condition and discharged me to my primary who'd refer me back. Wouldn't see me 3 times after 5 mins late due to traffic/parking issues. Didn't respond to 4 prior auths. Said he couldn't interpret other Drs labs
