I broke my arm and dr Barron was my orthopedic doctor. On three diffeeent occasions within a two month period dr Barron cancelled appointments I had schedule WAY in advance. Trying to schedule new appointments with his staff was a nightmare. His staff was downright nasty to me. At one point they gave me an appointment on a day he was scheduled to do surgery and They told me that I might wait hours to see him and added they were "doing me a favor". i switched to another orthopedic doctor.
