I highly recommend Dr. Baribeau. I had RK surgery with Dr. Baribeau over 20 years ago when I was 24 years old. Dr. Baribeau was the only doctor who would operate on my eyes (I was nearly legally blind). All the other doctors turned me away. Since the surgery, I have been able to enjoy a life of good vision. The reason you have to wait a long time in the waiting room is because Dr. Baribeau is the the best doctor in San Antonio, and everybody wants to see him. He does not turn patients away. He sees everyone and spends a lot of time with each patient. Dr. Baribeau is a brilliant man, who even does surgeries on or around major holidays, like Christmas and Thanksgiving, in order to accommodate his patients. He sees patients constantly. He never seems to tire, even though he is constantly working with patients. . Now that my husband has glaucoma, my husband sees Dr. Baribeau after unsatisfactory care from other ophthalmologists. My husband Is also extremely pleased and thankful for the level of care he receives from Dr. Baribeau. Dr. Baribeau has been able to reduce the rate of deterioration of my husband's glaucoma in a way that other doctors could not do. I highly, highly recommend Dr. Baribeau. He is brilliant, talented, kind, and very concerned for his patients well-being. He is passionate about his profession.

If you like to waste a lot of time!!!

My last appointment was at 9;30 am. I still hadn't seen the doctor at 11:15am when I had to leave to go back to work. Before that, I had an appointment for 4:00 pm. I finally saw the doctor at 7:15pm. This is not an exaggeration, these are actual times I spent in his waiting room.
