Was patient and thoughtfully answered questions. He was thorough in conversing about my problems. He wasn't the friendliest. The office wasn't as clean as it could be. Dated furniture and dead roaches
Awesome, friendly doctor (and staff). The visit was quick and I was able to get treatment for seasonal cider allergies which are especially bad in Austin.
Great doctor, very attentive, asked a lot of great questions Lady who did my allergy testing was great, as well as the rest of the office staff
Very pleasant staff and provider. I felt like i was the only person in the world the staff was so attentive. I will refer all my colleagues and friends to see Dr. Barstow! He was very knowledgeable and seems to really enjoy what he does. Thank you.
I was so happy with my visit this morning. Dr. Barstow and the whole staff were pleasant, easy to work with, and so accommodating. I went in for a consultation that turned into a full on testing appointment, and I was still in and out within two hours. I think I was with Dr. Barstow at least half of the two hours--he was very thorough and helpful.
Dr. Barstow and his amazing staff were very friendly. Dr. Barstow was very helpful and made sure I understood what I was going through. He took his time explaining and showed me examples. Explained the medications--I've seen a handful of doctors but he absolutely stood out amongst the rest.
I am so glad to finally know what I'm allergic to. After a series of many many pokes from the nurses at other office locations, my arms and back were inflamed with welts (as it turns out, I'm so allergic to most everything that if you threw a chair in the air I'd probably be allergic to it). Everyone I talked to receptionist, medical assistants, and doctor were all very friendly and helpful, and were happy to answer any questions I had. I will definitely be coming back here to get my allergy shots when I start the series for all four seasons! I am very pleased with the staff and doctors. The environment is friendly and personal. They really make you feel like a customer or friend; not just an insurance claim. I'm really happy with Dr Barstow new patient process and scheduling which has been a breeze. Thank you all again!
Dr Barstow was very thorough in his diagnosis and helped me understand how my treatment will benefit me. Thanks!

Everyone was helpful, friendly and knowledgable!
Awesome visit! Very informative and eager to answer any questions you may have.
So glad I went. Great advice and treatment plan for ending my extreme cedar fever suffering. Dr. Barstow was exceptionally informative, professional and helpful. Wish I'd gone 5 years ago!
Awesome visit! Dr. Barstow and his staff are wonderful!
I've been getting allergy shots for about 3 weeks now and I already feel so much better! No more allergy-induced asthma symptoms when I'm working out. Dr Barstow is very friendly and knowledgeable, and his staff is really professional and makes it so easy to get in and out for your weekly shots. Have already recommended to my mother and boyfriend!
He was excellent and the whole process was as enjoyable as getting allergy tested can be.
Friendly and professional. Just what I am looking for.
Dr. Barstow was very knowledgeable and took the time to explain the various approaches to his treatment. The wait was a little longer up front due to confirming my new insurance card.
An excellent example of an exceptional, compasionate, and caring physician. Very knowledgable.
