Dr. Barron has been absolutely wonderful to work with. I began to see her as an adolescent and have continued to see after becoming an adult. She has helped me more than anyone else. She is always so kind and compassionate. She has really helped me in my times of crisis and always try’s to make herself available especially in times of crisis.

Dr. Barron is a compassionate and caring doctor. She was very thorough when talking to us about what was going on with our daughter. She made sure to cover any questions and concerns we had, giving us plenty of time to process everything and put us at ease with the plan of care. Highly recommended.

I can not in good faith, recommend this doctor. She talks over and interrupts you. She is rude if you have a differing opinion than hers and she needs to revisit her unfriendly, inflexible office procedures. She is particularly defensive should you complain about staff or procedures with this is standard protocol. With a response of “we have followed all ‘standard’ procedures” sure identifies your “standard” needs a long hard look.
