That office is horrible. The customer service is terrible. I wanted to switch over primary doctor to Dr. Barrah because of proximity and reviews. The experience was horrible. His staff have horrible bad attitudes. I do not recommend this place at all.

The wait was very long but mostly because the other DR in the office had just started his vacation and Dr. Barrah was seeing both his own patients and the other Drs patients. Will judge the wait time when the other Dr returns to be fair. Dr. Barrah made up for it, however, by taking his time asking questions, listening to my symptoms and concerns and explaining preventative methods.

The doctor and nurse I saw were both very friendly and professional. I had to bring up some slightly embarrassing problems and they treated them politely and seriously. Only downside was that I had to wait about half an hour to see the nurse then got sent back to the waiting room to wait another 15 minutes for the doctor.

I wait for more than 1.30 hours the 2 times, I came. Plus, I was supposed to receive by mail the result of my blood analysis the day after, I have never received this mail. I called them before my appointment to ask them to send me a copy, then never did. The idea is to force to take an appointment to have your blood analysis result because after the doctor appointment I received the summary. You can easily have an appointment because I think they over booked the schedule of the doctor. The doctor is nice and seems professional but I will definitely never come back.

Had to wait 3 hours after my scheduled appointment time to see the doctor (expect this length of wait time). Dr. Barrah then asked why I need my medication for mental illness because I'm no longer in college, and incorrectly sent two other important medications to my pharmacy. Dr. Barrah was also supposed to review the medical information I sent directly to his email before my visit, which we confirmed in person at my previous appointment, and he walked into this appointment fully unprepared. I had to go help him find the email I sent a month ago in his inbox on his cellphone. I was astonished at how unprofessional the office is.

This doctor was extremely disappointing. He has an extremely glib bedside manner that made me feel that he was not taking me seriously. He rushed me through my examination, dismissed my concerns, and pushed me into taking an allergy screening. In the end, he prescribed me antidepressants after talking to me for less than 10 minutes, and giving no information about side-effects or even general usage. I felt neglected and unsafe after this unprofessional visit, and did not feel confident enough to fill my prescription.

They lost blood tests to me and ny partner, the online access to the results didnt work because the system was down and the waiting time was excessive. I ended up wasting to full mornings for nothing. They are nice people but I received so unprofessional service

Saw Dr. Barrah for a referral as well as getting some tests done. bedside manner of him and his staff was great. My only complaint is that I had to wait quite a while to see the doctor, otherwise I was treated well and quickly by the nurse/doctor assistant.

Worst doctor's office I've ever experienced. I realized that my 12:00 PM appointment was nowhere near coming to fruition when, at 1:30, the man next to me was complaining that he hadn't been seen yet for his 10:30 appointment. When I talked to the receptionist, she said that the delay was due to the doctor "getting caught in some traffic on the way there". Traffic doesn't warrant a 2.5 hour + delay.

I waited for two and a half hours after my scheduled appointment time to be seen, just to get a refill on a prescription. I also pre-filled my info on Zocdoc in the hopes of saving time, but the office had no access for some reason so I had to fill out all my forms again.

This doctor and all of the doctors at this office are great! Very considerate, passionate, personable, thorough, and polite. However, if you book with them, be prepared to wait a minimum of 1 to 2 hours before seeing the doctor. It's a bit ridiculous but the doctors make you feel like it was worth it. Book at your own discretion.

The doctor was very very nice. I have a hard time with accents and his was quite thick. However he was very sweet and gave appropriate treatment. The wait was quite long to see him. I had a 3:15pm appointment, arrived at 3:05pm and was seen at 4:20pm. The waiting room was full and I was given priority, but expect a wait.
