Patient Comments (6)
in Scarborough, ME |
I was referred to Dr. Barr because he was recommended when I went to Mercy ED with knee pain at 8 am. Dr. Barr's office got me in at 1pm that same afternoon! I found Dr. Barr to be pleasant, kind, and compassionate. He listened to me attentively and was very personable. I'm a medical professional and very critical of physicians when they lack communication skills and/or empathy. He was accommodating and able to work around my work schedule to get me in for a procedure. So glad I found him!
in Hollis/Waterboro Maine |
Dr.Barr was great... would recommend him to anyone needing to see a orthopedic Dr. on a call in/ emergency room visit follow up. Not knowing him or his reputation, I googled him to see his reviews, most were not that great, I highly disagree with what I read! Dr. Barr was very compassionate and listened to our concerns, his staff was wonderful a well.
in Arudel, ME |
Nice facility, office and clinical staff all just fine. But the Dr (Barr) himself? Not so much. I didn't feel like he listened to me very well, or like he thought my case beneath his ability. Any way, his interest in my well being seemed feigned at best, just a step or two down from TV's Dr House-style bedside manner.
in Portland, ME |
I found Dr. Barr less than professional in both his communication skills and attention during patient examination. He didnt write a note on my first visit; did not remember my concerns at second consultation. In my portal record, he noted a number of suggestions never mentioned in our meeting (eg. specifi exercises). When I tried to explain what my primary concern was, he never faced me but continued typing on his computer.
in Oxford, ME |
Poor response time to telephone calls if they bother to return the call at all. If you need a response, you'd be better off going to the ER. They're not overly concerned if you're in pain
in Bradenton, FL |
i have had 2 knee surgeries (arthroscopic) and both came out wonderfully. i also had 2 thumb arthroplasties which were both successful as well
