Awesome staff
Jul 14, 2022
Dr. Barron came in the room and accused os of doctor hopping. The problem that I was having needed to be addressed immediately and my regular physician couldn't see me for another week. We use this practice so that if one doctor is not available we can see another when necessary. Dr. Barron ordered an ekg and told us we needed to go immediately to the er.no explanation just for. He said he would call and tell them we were in the way which he did not do. I hope we never have to see this man again
Jul 14, 2022
With the exception of dr. Barron I would tell anyone to stay away from him
Jul 3, 2022
As always, excellent care and service.
Jul 2, 2022
I am very happy with my visit.
Jul 2, 2022
I am always able to get an appointment within days of calling. I rarely wait more than a few minutes to see the doctor. I love that Dr. Barron doesn't immediately give you a pill but gives other options to try first.
Apr 29, 2022
I have been under Dr. Barrons care for over 20 years. I trust him completely.

Dr Barron cares and is very good. Very prompt to see you once in the room
Mar 31, 2022
Scheduling is good to eliminate wait times. Longest wait time was for the lab...6 individuals ahead of me. Obvious that lab personnel had been reduced and not restaffed with more people coming into office. Lab tech was always busy.
Mar 31, 2022
Good experience
Mar 26, 2022
All good
Mar 25, 2022
Dr Barron was fantastic!! Very prompt. He listened attentively and talked to me like a regular person. (Meaning did not talk down to me or use fancy medical words I wouldn't understand.)
Mar 25, 2022
My visit was terrific. Everyone was nice and PROMPT which is extremely rare but VERY appreciated!
Mar 25, 2022
The website is VERY misleading. It allowed me to set an appointment for myself and my son I entered allll personal info, insurance info, AND received confirmation of our appointments . But then later (a week or so) mine was canceled but my son's wasn't. We didn't know his wasn't until the day of when I called. So in short, new patients should not even have the option to schedule an appointment.
Mar 18, 2022
I'll mention this again. I felt like I was treated like a number and not a person, the whole visit felt impersonal and like I was rushed out the door. I came in for an annual wellness visit and the doctor focused on case notes from my last visit there (about a year and half ago) and offered me a new prescription for something that I didn't even need/want. Now the pharmacy is contacting me saying I have a prescription ready, I'm not planning to get it from them. I don't think they cared about why I was there.
Mar 18, 2022
We were told to wear a mask when coming to the appointment and everyone I talked to and interacted with wore one except for the doctor.

DR. BARRON IS TRULY WONDERFUL-KNOWLEDGEABLE, FRIENDLY, TAKES TIME TO ANSWER MY QUESTIONS & CONCERNS.
Mar 3, 2022
ONLY REASON NOT RATED VERY GOOD WAS TRAFFIC JAM FOR BLOOD TEST DUE TO SO MANY PATIENTS. STAFF WONDERFUL.
Mar 3, 2022
WONDERFUL STAFF-COURTEOUS, EFFICIENT AND FRIENDLY. THEY ARE A JOY TO INTERACT WITH.
Mar 2, 2022
I am very displeased with the arrogance that was shown by refusing to see a patient who was on time dor their appointment. Please note all paperwork and insurance information was provided online.
Mar 2, 2022
The assistant at the counter was elected to tell me that the doctor would not see me. I shared my displeasure with her. I was not late for the appointment, if I had to be 15 minutes early then my appointment should be 10:45 not 11:00 as scheduled. She was very polite, but understood my issue and tried to show empathy.
Mar 2, 2022
Was called up to the window and told that I would have to reschedule my appointment, because Dr Barron would not see me because I was not 15 minutes early.
Jan 31, 2022
I am 73, and I have had a lot of different primary physicians over the course of my life. I have never had one as good as Dr. Barron. He is thorough, makes sure that I understand his recommendations, will answer any questions or concerns that I may have, and keeps excellent records on my health history. I feel like he is working with me to address my health concerns or problems. He is a no-nonsense type of doctor, but he takes the time to fully address my needs. I would highly recommend him to anyone that needs a family or personal physician.
Jan 31, 2022
Again, Very Good. She seemed to know quite a bit about my past history. I was impressed!!! I definitely did not feel like I was just a "number" to her.
Jan 31, 2022
Very Professional team - I have always been treated well.

Would not return my second call.
Jan 25, 2022
First visit good. Called to get more meds as he requested me to do and never got a call back when I called for a second visit.
Jan 22, 2022
Very quick visit not sure if the problem has been resolved I was told to buy over the counter medicine & come back if I still experience pain , the doctor told me that in 5 minutes and sent me home
Jan 22, 2022
Quickest visit ever
Jan 20, 2022
I always forget my mask and they politely but firmly hand me one lol
Jan 20, 2022
Dr. Barron has helped me so much over the years, even after I lost my insurance

Everything was great except I felt a bit rushed during my consultation with Dr. Barron. It kind of seemed like he was rushing or was in a hurry during my consult.
Jan 12, 2022
Online preregistration process is helpful
Jan 12, 2022
Dr Barron and all of his staff were exceptional.
Jan 12, 2022
See previous comment.
Jan 12, 2022
My only disappointment was Dr. Barron prescribed 3 medications for me. One, Aetna requires the physician or nurse to contact them and get approval. Dr. Barron's nurse informed me he does not do this. I feel this position on this matter is wrong.
Jan 10, 2022
While I was there for asthma, eczema, swelling, rising blood pressure, and weight gain, I don't think there was much in testing. What is causing all of this? I have no idea, and I got the impression not a lot was done to find the root cause. I'm also 51 and I've never been told I should think about a colonoscopy. I find that strange. Shouldn't I be going through cancer screenings? This kind of stuff never came up.
Jan 10, 2022
One of my prescriptions didn't get refilled, and I'm sure it was an oversight. But I don't know if it was from the nurse not writing it down or the doctor not seeing it.
Jan 10, 2022
I was asked to arrive 30 minutes before the appointment. This resulted in me waiting 30 minutes before being seen. So, I don't think that was necessary.
Jan 10, 2022
Fast and pleasant staff

Dr. Barron is the best! His is very eager to help in any way possible.
Jan 6, 2022
Dr. Barron was nice but I felt he did not listen to what I was telling him. I told him he could call urgent care for copy of report of my fractured ribs, Atrium informed me piedmont wouldn't be able to get into their system. All they had to do is call and they would fax. He was not interested .. He told me to take hydrocodone with 3-4 ibuprofen and one tylenol for pain. 10 mg of hydrocodone gave me hallucinations and I did not take others at the same time. Was too wprried to take all this meds together. He also put in my records that I came there with rib pain, not putting that I fell and fractured 3 ribs. I am 74 yrs old
