Dr Barreras and Dr Gates saved my life ...I had uterine papillary serous carcenoma stage 3c and they saved my life...great -they listen and work with you to develop the best treatment even when I asked for a 3rd stronger medicine .. The best doctors ...I may not be here if it was not for them..and Dr Barreras make me laugh ...I trust them totally...

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.

Dr Barreras is very kind empathetic and extremely knowledgable.
