I have been Dr. Barra's patient for over 35 years. He is the same physician he always was. He's professional, compassionate, understanding man and an amazing diagnostician. I have never seen anything like it...he looks at a simple blood test and knows what's wrong almost immediately. Some might say its experience. But, the man is a gifted, born physician, 2nd generation and he could do nothing but continue a tradition that obviously was a Godsend and help patients needing not only medical care, but, a kind and understanding word, endless patience & empathy. I was taken to Dr. Barra when I was sick, I had had 106+ fever. He knew immediately I had viral pneumonia and not the bacterial pneumonia I had been previously been diagnosed and treated for. I left my previous doctor's care and have been Dr. Barra's patient ever since. They do not make physicians like this anymore...he's truly an amazing man and my entire family loves him like I do. He's family to us. Thanks so much, Dr. B!
