He saved my life, several times.

Kindest, caring and best bedside manner ever. I have had near death illnesses and hospital bound weeks at a time. He never stopped caring or wavered on taking care of me. One time I was so sick he himself wheeled me to the E.R. What Dr. In your life does that?

Dr. Barreras is quite possibly the BEST and most caring Doctor I have ever seen. His staff are all wonderful. They treat you like you are the only patient in the world at that time. I love his nurses....they make me laugh!! And they are great at their jobs too. The Dr. took me off medicine that I didn't need to be on which was also making me have pretty major side effects that I didn't need....he is much more educated then my previous Oncologist and it seems he keeps up to date with new things all the time too. I would trust this entire office with my life, Time and time again. It really doesn't get much better than this office.
