The Patient Rating score is based on responses given during the CAHPS Patient Experience Survey. Responses are measured on a 10-point scale, with 10 being the best score. These scores are then translated to a 5-point scale in order to display results in a 5-star rating. Comments are also gathered from the same survey and displayed in their entirety with the exception of any language that may be considered slander, libel or contain private health information, which will be removed prior to publishing the comments.

I felt like once the doctor knew my injury was an work related injury he shut me off. He was not listening to what I had to say.

Dr. Barrow really listened and really accommodated my requests. I participated in the planning of my surgical procedure and he eased my fears of complications by altering his usual post op plan to optimize my outcome. I was really worried about having numbness in my foot long term and I do believe he cared about that and absolutely did everything he could to prevent it. I am not totally healed yet, but I do feel that I will recover fully and have the best outcome possible because he listened, cared and actually altered his usual plan to ease my fears.

This was my first visit with Dr. Barrow to be evaluated. He recommended surgery which now he is helping me fight to have. Since this was my first visit I didn't expect him to have my full medical record or ask about Rxs I am on. He is a specility doctor evaluating me and the symptoms I am having. I liked him and all of his staff. Very professional and very helpful. I ev=n received a call from the scheduler after they were notified the insurance denied approval for the foot surgery I need. [...] was very nice and explained what their office was doing to hopefully get this approved. Many offices I have had to be the one to call and find out what information the insurance needs from doctor and then have to call them and ask for whatever that is. Their office has been very nice and seems fo really want to get the psrson they are caring for what they need to have a better quality of life. I wish more doctors, thier staff, and the insurance companies had the same ideal.

I felt Dr. Barrow listened and asked appropriate questions concerning my injury. He discussed what the surgery would consist of while using a diagram to show where the injury was located. He was very respectful and had a great attitude!!!

I have been waiting over 2 weeks to get a referral for a vascular doctor. My primary care doctor has sent in the referral 2 times & a the vein center keeps calling me. I am having a MAJOR vascular problem; not a vein problem. I am at my wits end & cannot understand what the problem is. I am extremely unhappy about this.

This doctor was great! He completely looked my foot over and assessed it. He explained everything I needed to know about my foot. I was very comfortable with his knowledge. When he walked me out, (yes he walked me out) to the desk then one last time did a quick review of our visit. I felt very cared for and assured with my health care situation.

He didn't initially see the fracture on my right foot, […], that I was referred to him specifically for and he was ready to dismiss me as having some inflammation in my toe joints due to the distance of the race I was running when I fractured my foot. I'm a competitive runner and know myself that stress fractures often take an MRI to discover, […]. Luckily, the Urgent Care doctor I saw the prior Saturday showed me specifically where the fracture was and I was able to show Dr. Burrow's where it was. He told me to stay in the boot for the next 4-6 weeks, which I already knew. It was a pointless visit […].
