How was your experience with the doctor?This appt was my first time meeting Dr. Barr - was seeing her for follow up from a prior provider. She was incredibly friendly and easy to speak with. I had a colposcopy with biopsy and the procedure was quick and pain free. She walked me through each step and made me feel very comfortable. Would definitely recommend her!

How was your experience with the doctor?Had a great appointment with Dr. Barr. I was considering switching birth control methods and she did a great job answering my questions. She was right on time with my appointment. Absolutely no wait time. I've had some other gynological concerns that my old Obgyn didn't address being it wasn't detrimental to my health. She immediately started looking for solutions after I told her it made me uncomfortable. I also have a family history of breast cancer so she referred me to a doctor to check for the markers so we could monitor my risk levels and catch any symptoms early. Overall great experience!

How was your experience with the doctor?This was my first time going to a gyno and it was a really good first visit! The nurse who took my vitals and drew my blood was so incredibly sweet and helpful and really put me at ease. Dr Barr is also very efficient and super informative. She didn't make me feel scared at all and was quite transparent with everything, which I really appreciated.
