Although Dr Barber was ok, her staff is incredibly rude. I wrote a letter to Dr Barber to complain about this, but it was returned unopened. Calls to Dr Barber were also not returned. I stopped going to her strictly because of her staff. She needs to ask for honest feedback from patients.

Dr Barber takes the time to listen. She has a genuine concern with what's going on with her patients. She is very straightforward and explains things in detail when you need her to. She has a wonderful staff also.

I would highly recommend this doctor. Excellent. Straight to the point. Avoid unnecessary testing and explain in detail reasons of potential medications. Follow up by phone calls. We need more doctors like this one.
