I think I was rushed given medicine and I had problems with rectal and stomach issues. I had one test done nothing else. I wasn't told to come back for follow. I rescheduled with another doctor for second opinion.

Dr. Barrientos is wonderful! He makes me feel at ease when I visit him, and he lets me know he is there to help me find a solution to my problem. I feel like I am in good hands and that he has my best interest in mind. The last time I visited I waited a little longer than usual, but I don't mind because I know he is thorough with his patients and he is well worth the wait! I highly recommend him to everyone I know!

I was very impressed! I was nervous about finding a new gastro because I had a bad experience with my last one. He was super friendly, obviously well educated, and seemed very genuine in wanting to help me. I would definitely recommend him to my friends and family.

I had to wait almost an hour before the physician came in to see me. Was told he was at the hospital with a difficult case. But when he came in he was not rushed. He listened attentively and answered and explained everything thoroughly. His schedule was available for scheduling a day procedure that I need. I would recommend him.

Dr Barrientos was great, very knowledgeable and through with his explanations. I could tell that he was going to do everything possible to find out why I was having issues. However, his office staff is a different story. I tried to call about a severe issue 3 days in a row and was twice told that a nurse would call me back after leaving a message, the third day all I got was a voicemail and got no call back after leaving a message. A few weeks later I had another severe issue that I spoke with someone and they again said they would contact the doctor and then call me back, I never heard anything. With both issues I would have ended up back in the emergency room had I not had another provider to call.

I had an awesome experience with Dr. Barrientos! I was taken back within 20 minutes and then immediately seen by him when i got into my exam room. He spent 45 minutes with me listening to my concerns and didn't rush me one bit. He made me feel like our plan of action was extremely individualized for my needs and not something he tells everybody. I feel extremely confident in his expertise.

Finally I found a specialist that I trust to be honest, to carefully consider treatment options, to take immediate action, and to communicate clearly. Dr. Barrientos has a great sense of humor, makes eye contact, really listens, and actually smiles. It felt like he was genuinely concerned about my condition and my overall health. Also, everyone on his staff was competent, professional, and friendly. I left my appointment without one single complaint or issue. Quite rare to have such a positive experience these days. Highly recommend!

I was very pleased with my visit after being frustrated by previous doctor's I have tried. He is very knowledgable, honest, realistic, and has a great personality. He does not push any tests on you that you don't need. He listens and does not rush you, which took a lot of anxiety off me. He is willing to discuss options and gave me a plan and hope for healing. There was a wait, but it didn't bother me because once I was seen I had as much time as I needed until I was completely done with my questions. That is a big deal to me not to feel rushed.

Dr. Barrientos is most likely the best physician I have seen. He listens, asks the right questions, and knows his medicine. I had an issue that I had seen doctors for over year about, and he nailed it within 15 minutes. If you are looking for a brilliant, easy to get along with, down to earth caring Gastro Doctor, do yourself a favor and see him.

Listened to me ramble on about my problems as we tried to figure out the best course of action and did not try to judge me for health and/or lifestyle choices. It was a refreshing change from doctors that belittle you for being ill.
