    Dr. Barr and her team were great. I have one exception for the person doing the lidocaine. I had three procedures. The staff doing the shots for the first two were sensitive to my comfort. The third person getting me ready for closure showed no concern with my comfort in administering lidocaine.Other than this one item all of Dr. Barr's staff were wonderful.

    When I went in to get my procedure, I had reservations and Dr. Bar and her entire staff just totally put me at ease. The whole experience from start to finish was incredibly amazing for a procedure like that, and Dr. Bar's extremely friendly, personable, really knows what she's doing. She's fast, painless, and the...the whole experience with her and her doctor lady that gave me shots, and the nurse were just incredible.
