Dr. Barbour is an excellent physician. I trust and appreciate my doctor/ patient relationship. I was not as comfortable with the nurse- she asked about my hysterectomy- which I never had. I wanted to know my blood type- could not tell me because my records were in storage, I was disturbed by that information.

April 21, 2019 7:00 PM

i have known Dr. Barbour for about 40 yrs. He trained under my first OB/GYNE. He is an excellent doctor and I consider him a trusted friend. He answers any questions that I have and has taken excellent care of me over the years. I have hand picked all of my doctors over the years for their professionalism, listening ability and thoroughness. Having worked for 50 yrs. in the insurance business has helped me stay in tune with my body. I want a doctor who listens and is relatable. Dr. Barbour has always met my expectations.
