The wait is always at least an hour. The receptionist are extremely rude and unprofessional as if it’s a bother for them if you’re asking them a question.

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.
