    Dr. Barry is so knowledgeable in his field of nephrology, I feel extremely comfortable knowing that he's going to be in charge of my surgery. He took care of my mom 21 years ago, and I no doubt have 100% faith in everything that he's going to be doing for me. He's a wonderful physician, and he makes you feel very comfortable when he talks to you ... I am so glad that he's going to be my physician through this journey.
