Keep up the great work! Everyone in that office is very professional and friendly.
Dr. Barber was very understanding, thorough and compassionate during the appointment. I expressed my disappointment in Children's Express Care and the care we received there over the weekend and he genuinely apologized even though he has no affiliation with that facility. He knew that I felt brushed off by them and was kind enough to reassure me that I had done the right thing and that my gut had been correct about what was wrong with my son. I cannot thank him enough for the comfort that he gave me after that appointment, and for the continued care when I called hours later with another question and concerns about my daughter. THANK YOU Dr. Barber.
Dr. Barber was very professional and performed his duties in a manor that made us feel welcome. His attention to detail directly assists me in caring the welfare of my children.

Dr. Barber is always doing an amazing job
I think that Dr. Barber helped to relieve the anxiety that my daughter is experiencing after a recent visit to one of her other doctors. He spoke to her and played with her in a way that put her at ease.
Good discussion on upcoming transition from grade school to high school, looking at career path.
I am always very satisfied with the care my children receive at the office. The nurses always return phone calls promptly when I have a question or concern when my children are ill.
Keep up the great work!

The staff is always great to me and my son
Good. With my kids
dr. Barber didn't even know the surgeon he sent our child to (TWICE--TWO SURGERIES) was not a plastic surgeon. We thought we were going to a plastic surgeon. Two surgeries into this and our child's problem has not been fixed!!!
Always good experience
Dr. Barber's knowledge and experience with autism spectrum disorder is the best in Erie, PA.
Dr. Joe Barber is the best pediatric doc in Erie, PA area. Hands-down! I recommend him to all of my family and friends. He is an excellent communicator, cares for his patients and their parents, and always offers sound, supportive advice to both regarding health-related concerns/issues.
I have put 100% faith and trust in Dr. Barber. He tells things straight. He doesn't tell me what he thinks I want to hear which I actually appreciate. I feel like I will always get straightforward answers, not necessarily the answer I want to hear but honest answers.
Would recommend Dr. Barber to everyone.
Dr Barber is exceptional
Dr. Barber is always wonderful and caring with my children! He takes time to listen and explain things! I thank god he's there when we need him! He goes above and beyond for his patients!
