WakeMed Patient - February 2020

Patricia is great

WakeMed Patient - February 2020

Ms Barbaro is very compassionate and she makes me want to take care of myself

WakeMed Patient - January 2020

Ms. Barbaro is fantastic. I''m always surprised by the fact that she remembers me and what we''ve talked about in past visits, which has not been the case with past physicians. She understands how bad my anxiety is about any kind of medical visit, and always takes the time to respectfully answer every question I have, no matter how dumb I feel it is. And the best part about being her patient is the fact that she has helped me improve my overall health and mental well-being.

WakeMed Patient - January 2020

I feel as though Dr. Barbaro truly cares about me as a person and my well being.
