  • Dr Barrera is a excellent Endocrinologist, and he has a good staff.
    Dr. Barrera is always very thorough in my regular 6 month visits and very informative giving advice and assuring I understand diet and other preventative measures to take to maintain good health.
    Eleven plus years ago a friend gave me my endocrinologist's phone number. At the time I had to wait 6 months for the first available appointment with Dr. Barrera. I would do it again today in a heartbeat. Besides being a wonderful listener, advisor, and clinician he Is Interested In everything related to my health.I never feel he doesn't have time for me or that I'm just a number. Instead, at the end of every appointment I feel deeply grateful for his care that Providence makes possible.
    I was so impressed with Dr Berrera's (life changing) care with my Father when I took him to his appointments, that I changed my medical provider to Providence. I'm now a happy patient of Dr Berrera. He and his staff have gone beyond expectation in getting me the right medication & care to manage my diabetes. I can't thank them enough! * & my father *
    Dr Barrera is an excellent health care provider and answers all my questions with each visit. He comes up with a plan of care and addresses all of my concerns.
