Dr. Barros has been my husband's doctor for over a year. I never liked his 'bedside manner' (attitude toward patient), but my husband was OK with him. So, we stayed with him. Until today. He cannot handle actual, 'real' illness. My husband needs help with oxygen and an evaluation of his heart functioning. A doctor we saw last week (specialist) relayed this to him. Barros didn't even discuss the heart issue or physically examine him. He repeated four times (yeah...we got it...we aren't stupid) how insurance won't cover oxygen use unless you meet these tests, blah, blah, blah. Barros even began the visit by insulting my elderly husband with , "Well, YOU wanted to leave the hospital." (Seriously?? Who doesn't? But, then a good doctor would decide that for himself and shut up.) Barros then went into what he does well....his preventive medicine checklist. Flu shot? Cholesterol check? Taking your prescription?? "Oh, yeah. Except my husband is extremely ill and those aren't of MAJOR concern right now." He would do well in a preventive medicine clinic. Something he can handle. He is very rude, very condescending and has no 'heart', no empathy towards ill patients. Go inject Botox and rip off immigrants, Dr. Barros. Your clinician skills are very sadly lacking and your personality and manner towards patients is incredibly, awfully, BAD. I advise anyone to see another doctor. He, in fact, should be reported for his 'lack of care'.
