Patient Comments (1)

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...more
