Dr. Barron is hands down the best surgeon you can go to for shoulder problems. I had shoulder issues that I could not even lift my arm or comb my hair and Dr. Barron repaired my shoulders to the point I could play relatively high-level competitive tennis at 50 years of age. Would recommend him without reservation for any surgery from your shoulder to your hand. Great surgeon and a great guy.

I have had 2 different thumb (arthritis ) surgeries with Dr. Barron (one for each hand). His care and expertise is simply unparalleled. His staff is polite and response. I cannot recommend him any more highly.

Dr Barron performed arthroscopic surgery on my right shoulder. My husband recommended him to me because he had successfully, after several surgeries, kept my husband as an avid kayaker for 25 yrs. I had been in pain for about 15 years. Dr Barron is a wonderful surgeon that I particularly recommend to female patients. He listens. Dr. Barron was very responsive when I reached out to him for such things as my bandage has loosened and what do I do. Dr. Barron is the best!

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.
