One Star

A clown-ish guy with poor bedside manner. Jokes way too much and is less than gentle with babies. Constantly refers you to the practice's website---to the point that you wonder why you're even seeing him .

Great little office

I have many children now but how we met Dr. Barrows, he was who we were given when my first Daughter was born He came to the hospital. He was funny and had this dry humor. He seemed genuinely concerned about my daughter but also for me and understanding the fear of being a first time mom. He is serious when he needs to be and if you are a teachable parent he is funny and very loving. We have opted several times not to leave Chicago because we thought we would never find another Dr. so wonderful. We love him and my children know who they are going to see when they are sick and it is never an issue. They are as comfortable at his office as they are at their ballet lesson. He has provided many a mitzvah for us. We think he is GREAT!

Very Experienced and Warmhearted Doctor

Dr. Barrows is a very experienced and warmhearted doctor. My son has been seeing him for about his whole life, and we are always very satisfied with his service. He has an open mind, always tells you the truth, and gives the exactly accurate treatments. He also has a sense of humor which makes our every visit a delightful time. Another thing has to be mention is that people walking into Dr. Barrows office sure will notice the professional-photographer-level pictures he made. Dr. Barrows is a person who loves life, and that can explain his passion for kids.

Had to take second opinion

He was very abrupt in his manners maybe he thinks he's some sort of Dr. House. Unfortunately we had to take second opinion on his diagnosis and prescription and unlike Dr. House, he was found rather lacking. He prescribed something for an ear infection that's usually given for a skin infection and after the shocking manner in which he treated us, we decided to seek second opinion. Good thing with did that and hope to never see Dr. Barrows again.
