    in Ft Lauderdale, FL |
    After searching for a new hematologist two years ago, I was fortunate to find Dr. Barreras. He is not only a professional doctor but cares about his patients. He takes his time with you and explains every little detail with you concerning your medical issues and treatments. I was recently diagnosed with multiple myeloma. I know I'm in good hands with him and will receive the best treatments.

    I found him to be rude, impatient and difficult to talk to. His verbal diagnosis did not match the test results received leading me to believe he has provided an inaccurate diagnosis at best. He led me to think my father was dying of cancer with no chance of recovery, only to change his mind at the second visit. Horrible experience.

    Dr Barreras is very kind empathetic and extremely knowledgable.
