Dr. Barrera is phenomenal - he is very knowledgeable and when he speaks to you he looks you right in the eye and makes you feel you are his only patient. I worked for an Endocrinologist for five years and I thought he was good but I will say Dr. Barrera is so far above my old doctor's expertise. Congratulations on having him at BSW

He explained and continually asked me if I had questions. He showed me how to operate blood glucose monitor and how to do my injections. My partner was on the phone during my appointment and he answered all of her questions. We made decisions together about my treatment plans. I felt so much better about my diabetes diagnosis after seeing Dr. Barrera. I have to drive 160 miles round trip to his office, but I don't mind because he is so great.
