I really like him. He’s right to the point, and doesn’t waste any time. He never keeps you waiting and He always does what he can to help. Office staff and nurses are great too.
Moscow, PA |
The office staff and nurse was very nice but Dr. Barrera called me a mean name and offended me and i explained To him I’m switching ALL of my doctors from the poconos to Scranton so i dont Have to commute. He pre-judged me for certain medications I’m prescribed and then prescribed me a medication i TOLD HIM. THAT I TRIED AND MADE ME SICK. He’s judge mental and arrogant. I will Be calling the office to let them know i will Not be teturning
I was referred to one of his colleagues by a neurosurgeon. He walked in the room and blamed me for being late, when I was 5 minutes early. He made an assumption that the neurosurgeon billed me an unwarranted amount and proceeded to ask me how much the visit cost. He then, among many other things, made an assumption after reviewing my family history and asking many ignorant questions, asked me if my parents are in jail. Completely unprofessional and out of line.
