Have seen her for quite a few years. Thorough workups for any issues, careful coordination with other Specialists as needed. The Staff have many years of Rheum experience which really helps to win appeals for prior auth meds and imaging and molecular biology labs typically needed in this specialty.

The worst office ever,Dr Barboza is just a horrible doctor you can tell she doesn't care about her patients and her nurse Nancy is nice but she's complacent and lazy.Mary or Maria at the front office is so rude and has no idea what she's saying or doing.The Pain Management team they have working out of there are the same ,no bedside manners at all. I'll be back to update because the way these people are really bothered me.

I used Dr. Barbosa for over 8 years and then I moved to be with my son and his family to Oregon. I didn't find a new dr. that agreed with her diagnosis until now. I was diagnosed with Lupus, RA, Sjorgrens and various arthritis. Each of the doctors I have seen didn't agreed with the Lupus and took me off of Plaquinil. After five years, I finally found as doctor that did many blood tests just like Dr. Barbosa did. There are new tests for Lupus and I definitely have Lupus, RA, Sjorgrens. GREAT DR.

TERRIBLE. They misbill your insurance and charge you for services they don't even provide or specialize in. Mark that works in the office is awful and rude. When they make mistakes they claim you're at fault, are misinformed and it's your responsibility to pay for it. Wouldn't go back to save my life.

My experience with Dr Barbosa was one of the most negative medical experiences I have yet to have. Do not deal with these people! There were several times where I was sent to the lab for blood work and their unorganized staff did not have my orders. I had to waste time going back up to their office and then back down to the lab... spending hours in the waiting room. The receptionist there is very unprofessional. All in all... they don't care about you or your health concerns . I give a "zero"

Dr Barbosa is a very knowledgeable and insightful doctor. I have been seeing her for about 10 years and she has managed to keep my RA under control, despite some of the crazy things I feel compelled to do like ocean sailing, international travel and golfing. She is a first class doctor and very caring human being. You will not find better!

Her office staff manager and staff are rude, condescending and overall unacceptable for a Dr. used for a long term chronic disease. I would not recommend.
