The entire day before my appointment I was nervous about attending this appointment. I at one point almost canceled. I feltlike maybe I was over thinking my situation and maybe I didn’t need to be seen by a DR. Dr. Barrera was very understanding, and he listened to my husband and I on all of our questions that we had due to a super early pregnancy loss. He provided us with tests and took his time with us to ensure that we were well taken care of. I really enjoyed my visit. The wait time was a little long but he personally apologized for the wait and now that he took his time with me and my husband it was understandable, and it didn’t bother me at all to wait!
