During the horrible Cancer diagnosis we found a Doctor and staff that helped ease the difficult times. Dr. Barreras' kindness and positive outlook made us feel like things were going to be OK and they were. Everyone in the office we loved and they became friends. Lori, Alba, Becky and of course Dr. Barreras. We owe you more than a 5 star rating. Thank you all so very much.

My mother-in-law has been a patient of Dr. Barreras for the past five years. When you call the office, you always get a live person to speak with. No hold time and no need to leave a message. The office personnel are always very accommodating. Many of his staff have been with him for 20 plus years. Dr. Barreras is a very caring and knowledgeable physician. He actually sits and listens to his patients and performs a thorough medical exam. He treats the patient with respect and takes the time to explain the diagnosis and treatment options. I have recommended Dr. Barreras to many of my family and friends. They all have had similar experiences. As an RN, I have the opportunity to meet many physicians and Dr. Barreras gets a top rating from me.

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.
