"Getting an appointment can be a bit difficult. If it's an emergency they will see you ASAP. Normal visits can take a month to get into see Dr Barba. This can be frustrating especially if something unavoidable comes up and you have to be reschedule. His office staff can be somewhat difficult to deal with, especially when trying to accomplish something over the telephone and avoid an additional office visit. The good news is although he operates out of a busy office, you don't feel rushed through an office visit. He's very thorough with answering your questions and concerns. He's extremely knowledgeable and makes sure that you understand all follow up procedures and what you need to make the WLS successful. Add in a great bedside manner and I highly recommend him. "
