It was nothing but chaos in her office. She was pleasant but would not take time to explain anything. Her staff forgot to bring me samples while I was in the exam room. I’d ask about it and 20 minutes after the doctor left the room one staff person told me that my visit was over and told me to leave. I said I was told to wait for a prescription and samples. She told me to come out of the room and wait at the desk. The doctor saw me at the desk and asked me why I was still there. She never stopped to ask me she asked in passing so I said that I was waiting for my samples and prescription. Ridiculous!!

She had the audacity to call us to discuss end of life options simply because my mother has been on a ventilator due to COVID19 for 7 days. Mind you the average is 6-12. She overtakes us, talked down to us, was rude, made assumptions about what we were saying and refused to let us finish a complete sentence without interrupting us. She horrible and I hope my mother survives her flippant disregard for the recovery of her patients and providing genuine care.

Evidently something good has happened in Dr. Barton's office since the negative review of her staff in January. I found Dr. Barton and her staff to be totally professional and competent, and responsive to my concerns. Dr. Barton prescribed an inhalant for me which immediately mitigated my COPD problem.
