      After several trips to others pulmonary doctors, Dr. Barber did a procedure for fluid around my lungs. Dr. Barber far exceeded my expectations during the entire event. She met with us several times prior to surgery, explained the procedure in depth step by step and we were very impressed with her expertise, skill and professionalism. She and her entire staff were very caring and considerate from our first visit to the post op visit. Feeling great and virtually no pain. Thank you Dr. Barber.

      Genuinely caring and interested in her patients. She is one of the best doctors I have ever met. She is skilled with procedures and incredibly organized and above everything else, she gets results. She is generous and kind.
      in Atlanta, GA |
      Excellent Doctor. She performed a very difficult on my dad, high risk bronchial endoscopic procedure after a surgeon removed part of his lung due cancer. Others doctors were unable to fix the issues that impaired them to remove my father tubes on his chest. He came through with flying colors after the placement of some bronchial valves . She is direct and to the point and we appreciate her kindness, knowledge and skills. My family and I are extremely grateful to have doctor Barber with us.

      She is very caring, takes her time to explain, and we did not feel rushed. Easy to talk to. I feel confident that she is one of the best! Thank you Dr. Barber!

      Excellent physician.
      If there were a choice of no Star I would've chose that. She is probably the rudest Dr that I've ever met. I've been in the Medical field a very long time. She initially seemed very concerned about my new diagnosis and wanted to treat me. My follow up visit not so much. She tells me I'm not sick, my condition will never go away, but she doesn't treat it!?!? Ok........ Wants me to go back to primary Dr who referred me to her in the first place?? Wow!! What a waste of time & money!!

      Why Does Experience Matter?

      Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.
