Dr. Barbosa was great! Very real. Easy to talk to. Realistic about treatment options.
in Anchorage, AK |
Dr. Barbosa helped me make informed decisions about my healthcare, but she also listened to me and respected my decisions. She is a very skilled surgeon/plastic surgeon. She removed two cancerous tumors from my breast and left me with two breasts that look better than before! I felt that she truly cared about me and, in turn, I trusted her.
Anchorage, AK |
Finding quality care in Alaska is challenging. Dr. Barbosa, however, was exceptional. I would recommend her to a friend or family member based on her professional competence and conservative approach to healthcare. She seemed like she actually cared and treated me like a human, not a problem to be solved.
in Anchorage AK |
Dr. Barbosa is a compassionate, generous woman who believes in educating people so that no unnecessary procedures are done. She is one of the best doctors I have ever met and the best surgeon I have met in Anchorage. Very pleased--will highly recommend her to anyone.
