Dr. Barrer performed my bulging disk surgery in 2001. I'd been in agony for 5 months. At one pt. walked into dr. offices' virtually crawling. I was impressed that Dr. B didn't immediately want to cut me open, but made sure I'd explored other inital options (pain injections, chiropractor, etc.) He went over everything with me, my options, what he was going to do, the follow-up. And after surgery, both in the hospital & his office, he went over any questions I had about post-surgery care. His staff was also very helpful with any questions I had. My brother ended up using Dr. Barrer for his herniated disk surgery a few years later.
I had a severely herniated disc in my lower back which required surgery. I had originally consulted with Dr. Yoon who is a partner in Dr. Barrer's practice, and Yoon was going to perform the surgery, but I got switched to Barrer due to a scheduling issue. Barrer performed the surgery, but during my follow-up visit would not acknowledge that the symptoms I was having were caused by my disc herniation. I was having serious problems, which had begun when my injury occurred, and which I had already done enough research on to know that the problem I had was caused by the type of injury I had. I think he was worried that I would sue him because he hadn't performed emergency surgery, which was never my intent.
Surgery was performed on my husband, which resulted in a masive stroke. My husband was healthy when he went in and came out unable to speek, eat, walk or talk. I believe that there was neglect in the operating room. We were misinformed that it was a surgery of the brain that was not that complicated.
