Dr. Barber is wonderful. He listens and tailors his medical advice to our concerns. We cannot ask for a better pediatrician.
Always love seeing Dr. Barber. He always takes his time and provides excellent care.
I have been coming to this office for several years and I find that during most visits, I am getting lectured at about how to raise my kids - what they eat, how many hours of chores they do in a day and other items. While appreciate the attention to this level of engagement, I feel that we are veering off the path of why I am there - and that would be the physical health of my kids. I appreciate the social and wellbeing aspects of the visits, but it is starting to become a little heavy-handed and condescending.
best dr around.wouldnt chamge ever
He has a poor bedside manner. He seems to know what he's talking about, but he interrupts constantly and makes us feel like we're wasting his time. He made my son frustrated with how often he got interrupted.
This was our first time seeing Dr. Barber since our previous pediatrician retired. Both my son and I were really impressed. I appreciated his honesty and his communication about things my son and I should focus on to help improve/maintain his health.
very Good always gives good advise and helpful tips
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 an excellent Physician. I recommend him to everyone I know.

Dr Barber is very attentive, thorough, and explains everything. He even recommends various info that parents may need.
all my Grandkids is with this provider and I recommend to my friends and family
My children have been with Dr. Barber since being babies. I have recommended this practice to 2 other people and they do use Dr. Barber's office for all medical needs.
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!

Dr Barber was very professional, was able to answer questions.
Dr. Barber is the best. We have recommended him to everyone who needs a highly skilled and compassionate doctor for any pediatric neurological concerns. he is worth our 2 1/2 hour drive to his office.
