What People Say

Dr. Barata is absolutely wonderful! This is the first time that I am not afraid of going to the doctor for fear of judgment. Dr. Barata actually sits and talks with you and honestly listens to your wants and needs. He also helps you by giving you attainable goals to help get you to where you would like to be. Dr. Barata believes in plant based eating and has helped me to add more plants into my diet, but does not judge me because I still eat meat. Lastly, Dr. Barata is extremely accessible through text, email, phone, etc. His replies show that he honestly cares about you and your situation. I am so happy to have found him.

I had pretty much lost my faith in getting good care from a PCP. Then my husband and I began seeing Dr. Barata and it was an entirely different level of care. He is compassionate, caring, and very knowledgeable about a variety of issues that go way beyond the limits of a PCP. I can’t remember when I’ve had such a thorough wellness visit and a discussion of the results. He is also able to see me promptly, in fact the same day. It is very helpful that I’m able to address my symptoms while I’m actually experiencing them. I couldn’t be happier we’ve found the best Dr. in town!

El Dr. Barata es un médico comprensivo y atento. Siempre tiene disponibilidad para verme cada 3 meses para mis chequeos. Pasa tiempo conmigo. Escucha todos mis problemas, lo recomiendo como médico de cabecera. Estoy muy agradecido con él, el personal y mucho más por lo que ofrecen a nuestra comunidad.
