11/09/13 3 4 5 5 Staff is neutral as there wasn't any there. I am impressed with her level of knowledge and the fact that I could communicate so easily with her. She didn't just sit and listen, she would support, challenge, and offer suggestions to help me move along.

25/02/10 1 5 4 4 This was my first visit and Dr. Barngrover was great (as first visits go), but her front office lady is COMPLETELY DEFENSIVE. I verified my benefits and copapy BEFORE I saw the Dr. ($15 copay) When leaving, I was told my copay was $30. When I questioned the charge, the front office lady was VERY short with me and said "NO, it's thirty--we're a specialist". I said, ok and paid it. I returned home and called the ins. comp. They said my copay with my particular plan is $15. I called the Dr.s office back and front office lady was then downright HATEFUL. I told her that I was simply trying to understand where the miscommunication is occuring. She chided the ins. comp. and me. and said they'd waive my copay and then I'd see that it was $30 when the EOB comes through. SO RUDE -- won't return because of FRONT OFFICE STAFF!
