  • Jan 31, 2019

    I had a very good experience with the RNs and with the other gals that were in there helping them the other nurses and Dr. Bar is so nice. She was excellent and very helping with me. I mean, she was explaining things to me and I very much appreciated that.

  • Jan 29, 2019

    She was professional and exhibited caring about the person that required the type of cancer removal that I needed. She and her assistant used adequate numbing shots to reduce the pain associated with the removal. At the present time it appears they have left me with very scaring. The swelling and bruising was more than I had expected even though I was informed at the time that was a possibility.

  • Jan 29, 2019

    She doesn't have much availability, which is really bad.

  • Jan 28, 2019

    Extraordinary surgeon. Seamless experience. 5 stars!

    Dr. Bar was fantastic. She was highly skilled and highly professional but also just really friendly and compassionate and fun to be around. So yeah, I'm totally happy with my experience with Dr. Bar.

  • Jan 28, 2019

    Dr. Bar was professional and did a fine job with my treatment.

  • Jan 27, 2019

    I chose the first appointment so was there at 7:20 am. Got right in but did not get final treatment until 11:30Someone after me caused the delay as I did not need further treatment. I walked from Mirabella and was home at 12:15.

  • Jan 26, 2019

    Everyone was very helpful and friendly from the appointment person to the nurses and doctor who performed my surgery. Also, everything was done in a timely manner. Thank you.

  • Jan 26, 2019

    All my experiences were positive. If there is any criticism, it would be the delay between being taken to the surgery room, prepped and then nothing happening and no attendants in the room and the patient waiting. I'm not referring to the delay necessary for the anesthetic taking effect. All the doctors and assistants were professional, introduced themselves and that was a pleasant experience.

  • Jan 26, 2019

    we was well pleased with our visat .

  • Jan 25, 2019

    It was a very good experience. quality people, short duration The only thing that I would have wanted was for them to let me know how much of a margin they thought they'd be taking ahead of time. Other than that, I enjoyed the people and the procedure went very well.

  • Jan 24, 2019

    The surgery was excellent! Dr. Barr performed the procedure seamlessly, I did not feel anything (thank you to the nurses who did the anesthetic!), and everything was over in under a few minutes. Great job!! :) Thank you so much!

  • Jan 24, 2019
