Dr. Barron is a friendly guy however, he is only in the room about 5 mins before he leaves to go to the next patient. He's a bit too rushed

Front staff was very welcoming and appeared to actually like what they do as opposed to other clinics that make you feel bad for coming and bothering them. Again, can't say enough about how much a difference that makes and one of the reasons I am relocating my Wife from the Clover clinic she just visited prior to my appointment.
Apr 7, 2021
Immediately made an appointment for my Wife to switch to this Doctor.
Apr 7, 2021
Down to earth and easy to talk with. Was based in reality around Covid and did not require a full body bubble.
Apr 7, 2021
Fastest clinic I've ever been at. Was very impressed I was NOT handed another clipboard after answering all the questions on line to answer the same questions again as most would do. A+

I believe eye contact and listening respectfully helps during these brief in and out appointments to discuss your health maintenance needs and concerns.
Mar 6, 2021
All staff was courteous. Especially, the business office manager. I trust this practice because they are caring for both my parents who are aging in place. I believe the office finally got the connection after all this time. I arrived with my mother for an office visit and the MD finally put two and two together. I felt he got the human connection at this time. He did not see me as just another patient, but as a caregiver who works full time and is trying to mitigate my own health risk factors like blood pressure, weight gain, and cholesterol. I need the support of my MD when my life has become very stressful for me. So compassion from my MD is very important to me.
Mar 6, 2021
I think you must have mutual respect in order to build trust and concern over time. The customer must feel the engagement during each visit and the relationship with your MD will come. I feel the pandemic has changed how doctors interact or engage with their customers. This translates into customer satisfaction. Their level of compassion is a game-changer for me.
Mar 6, 2021
The nurse assistant helped with setting the tone and building the relationship with the MD. He is a wonderful doctor but can be all business during most visits. He responded when I commented about the new health record. I think he saw me as a person finally.
Mar 6, 2021
good experience... I did not feel rushed. The MD and staff gave eye contact. The MD walked me to the lab waiting area and talked to me while arriving there. This made me feel that he cared about me. I felt a better connection with him now. I arrived as early as possible from the workplace to make my experience with him more meaningful. He does not like late arrivals no matter what. I did not want to be canceled. The nurse reminded me to always arrive 10 or 15 minutes early to avoid not being seen by him. I told her I left my job 15 minutes early to arrive here and appreciated the tip. Because I did my part, I felt like the visit was more productive, and I did not feel the MD's frustration during this visit. I felt more respected during this visit. We had a good visit this time. I felt mutual respect for both his profession and mine. I told him that the new electronic medical record was helpful and made the visit better for all participants. I updated my health information along with my Moderna Vaccination information dates of both shots.

I have recommended Dr. Barron and the staff to everyone that needed to know the name of a reliable and proven physician.
Feb 24, 2021
Excellent
Feb 24, 2021
Dr. Barron is very professional and very efficient in his behavior and attention to my visits. He does not waste time which I very much appreciate. But, he is thorough in this examination, is patient in his discussions to make sure that I have a full understanding on his recommendations, and is completely willing to make sure that all of my questions and concerns are addressed. I have never felt pushed. I am 72 years old - I have had many very good personal physicians in my time. But I have never had one that I have greater confidence in than Dr. Barron. He is the best. Personal physicians came up once in a discussion that I had with a Duke Energy employee at one of the plants. They asked me about what I thought of mine. I very honestly replied. They said that my responses reminded them of the favorable comments that they have gotten from Mom and Dad on their physician. They asked for the name of my physician - and I told them Dr. Barron. It turned out that I have the same physician that the parents have. I feel sorry for anyone that does not use his services.
Feb 24, 2021
Excellent.
Feb 24, 2021
Was able to complete the check-in questionaire on-line before the appointment - another nice benefit of using Dr. Barron's services.
Feb 24, 2021
Procedures are simple, and staff performance is excellent.
Feb 22, 2021

Feb 4, 2021
I tend to have a general mistrust of physicians, but Dr Barron has proven to be knowledgeable, personable, realistic, and has the ability to explain ailments, treatment options, and expectations effectively and understandably. I'm very pleased with his approach to our care.
Feb 2, 2021
Dr. Barron doesn't mess around. He gets to the point. He also takes the time to explain any questions I have ever had. I recommended Dr. Barron to a friend of mine who recently moved to the area. He likes Dr. Barron for the same reasons.
Feb 2, 2021
I like early morning visits, so there is little chance of delays.
Feb 2, 2021
Everyone here is great.

Jan 29, 2021
I am never late but this time I was 2 minutes late and they told me I would have to reschedule my appointment for another day. I said 2 minutes, I've waited longer than that on him before. They ended up taking me. After I waited over 15 minutes for them to tell me he would see me. I spent less than 10 in the room for a yearly exam. Blood work and out the door in 15 minutes or so. I work with appointment myself I have never turned away a client for 2 minutes not even 5. The next day I got a text, email and call saying I didn't show up for my appointment, talked to someone and told them I didn't appreciate the way I was treated when checking in and didn't like getting calls ,text and email. I was there for my appointment!

Jan 28, 2021
Appt was at 8:15am, arrived at 8. Dr. barron said i was late because I didn't arrive 30 minutes prior to appt. but office doors don't open until 8am. made me reschedule my appt for 12:15pm. 1st impression wasn't great, but 2nd appt went much smoother.
Jan 25, 2021

Jan 10, 2021
Everyone knew their job very well. The registration area let me give them my wife's papers early before we had an appointment for her. I was very happy that they would let me do that. I wanted to get our past doctor in Arizona records to Dr. Barron before he would see her.
Jan 9, 2021
I gave Dr. Barron and staff highest ratings because they deserve them-all around wonderful people.

Dr Barron solved a chronic embarrassing problem that has been restricting. I am most grateful.
Dec 31, 2020
so I'm not sure these are the right question for me. I came in for physical but it was the strangest I've ever had. I never took my clothes off and he just listened to heart and lungs. then sent me to lab. I was told by his nurse that I should loose weight because my glucose and triglycerides are a little high. I think it's important to tell someone that they are pre diabetic. I had to look up my numbers to see where they were at and had to research the fact that I am in the pre-diabetic range. if he doesn't want to talk to me fine, but he may have wanted to relay that little tidbit to me.
Dec 23, 2020

Going back to a previous question, the nurse took me back and when she was finished may have been 10 minutes before Dr came in.
Dec 10, 2020
The nurse was very good and called the next day with lab results. At this time I didn't have a problem, I was there for my annual physical.
Dec 10, 2020
This was my first time seeing Dr Barron I plan to ask for his services more frequently.
Dec 9, 2020
Holly was extremely helpful on 12/3 when I stopped in for a blood pressure check and again on 12/7.
Dec 9, 2020
Dr Barron always takes a reasonable approach to my care and makes sure I understand and agree.
Dec 9, 2020
Quickest visit I have ever had. Safe environment and friendly staff

Plebotomist- when I asked if blood was really blue or red before exposed to oxygen- she said it was blue- but the other pleb lady's eyes got so big like she didn't believe it either. so I researched it and it's red. if you don't know- just say so.

nurse was wonderful
Nov 2, 2020
one of the most efficient dr visits I have ever had and felt very confident in the prognosis and treatment
Nov 2, 2020
the visit was wonderful. very efficient. I do not like the online registration process. had tried to schedule an appt several weeks earlier and kept getting multiple texts, emails and automated phone messages about it. all duplicate. then get a phone call saying when I scheduled a physical I mentioned I was worried about blood pressure and needed to rescheduled since that was a different type of appt. the online app asked if I had any concerns while doing the physical and what to look for but it appears I should not have done that. I was not pleased with the process at all so canceled the appt until I hurt my arm that caused me to schedule a new appointment. I called to make the appt this time and it all went smoothly
Nov 1, 2020
Appointment booking very good here. Always on time with very short wait time
Nov 1, 2020
Staff and Dr. Barron very efficient, on-time , courteous and helpful. Just the right combination of friendly, caring professionals.
