Ugh what a HORRIBLE experience. First off, I made an appointment for 10? And for what? Because the doctor wasn’t even in the office until 10:20. That is when it opened!!! So people were waiting outside, and then we had towait for them to get the doctors office ready. Half of their staff didn’t show up so that slowed the process down even further. Now to the appointment - after finally being seen, the doctor wrote me a prescription for only half the amount that I actually needed, UNDER THE WRONG BRAND so my insurance didn’t cover it. I called him twice to try and fix this. He claims he did but both pharmacists had the same problem with the prescription. When I called him the second time he made me wait for about 10 minutes as he “pulled up my info” and then told me he couldn’t send it out again and started, no joke, yelling at me on the phone that he wouldn’t. I’ve never experienced ANY sort of treatment like this from any licensed medical professional. I would not recommend this doctor or location to ANYBODY.

I had a positive experience with Dr. Barrah. I find him to be friendly and personable as well as professional. The only issue was a very long wait time. Other than that, I would definitely recommend him to those I know.

I will never go back to this facility. I arrived ten minutes prior to my appointment. Was director to sign in at second window. It took 40 minutes for a desk worker to appear- they called one name and then disappearedagain. After 20 more minutes I got up and left- it being almost an hour past my appointment and not even acknowledged.

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 otherDr 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 tosee 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 appointmentto 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 senttwo 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.

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 Italked 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.
