Dr. Barreras is one of the most kind giving doctors you will ever come in contact with! He saved my sister's life and sees me at any given time for any situation! They don't make doctor's like him!

if I had to choose to see Dr. Barreras or die of cancer... I’d die of cancer. Horrible doctor I’ve ever encountered. Stay away.

This physician had a fairly complete disregard for me as a cancer patient. He did not respect my time, hour-long waiting time, he was condescending, did not share records with other doctors I requested and saw me but twice briefly during my chemo treatments. I do not, would not, recommend this oncologist... even if he were to treat a pet.

Thinks he is god and staff portrays the same . Talks down to you and when asked a question like your questioning me. Waited 5 weeks for a decision on cancer as he had to speak to the guru about it. Went to Moffitt and had an answer in 5 min. My dermatologists had the same answer as Moffitt in 7 min. Will not go out of his way to help nor will his staff. He is all about the money and moving in and out as many as possible. Has no personal interest in you, won't work with you. His terms only.

I feel there is a general disregard and disrespect of a patient and the patient's time for a doctor to arrive in the office long after the first appointment arrives. Chemo patients are weak, sick, vulnerable and at risk of infection. Sitting for hours waiting for a doctor's grand entrance is not good for sick people. If I could change doctor's now believe me I would.

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.
