Ratings for Dr. Jerome Barr
Dr Jerome Barr is a lousy doctor. He is unprofessional, lacks knowledge for his field yet is very arrogant. He treats you on a whim and leaves your health in jeopardy. He constantly says" I don't know" and suggests one specialist to the next. Yet, they are situations connected to autoimmune so not sure why it is so perplexing to him. He also can be critical of some of the issues you have. He definitely needs a refresher course and a better bed side manner. He will milk your insurance company for as much as he can. I'd flag him a possible insurance fraud doctor. I'm really not sure how he got out of medical school but guess someone has to graduate last in the class. Please choose another rheumatologist or you mine as well not see anybody. Don't play with your health.
I am a fairly new patient and I like Dr. Barr. My big issue is with the front desk. My calls always go to voice mail and return calls are not made. This is maddening and could cause me to look elsewhere. I hope this situation will be corrected.
Dr. Barr is a kind and compassionate doctor. He is very good at making you feel comfortable with him, which makes it easier to communicate with him. Auto - immune diseases are difficult to treat and even harder to accept. I am thankful that I found such a caring doctor to help me deal with my RA.
If you have Fibrmyalgia don't bother calling this doctor. He came highly recommended but when I called for an appointment I was told he wasn't taking any Fibro patients. He's a rheumatologist and they are supposed to be the specialist to go to for treatment of Fibro. Very dissappointed.
I really like Dr. Barr. He can be slightly condescending and when he diagnosed me with fibromyalgia he said it kind of matter of fact and not too sensitively. He is obviously very knowledgeable always takes the time to listen to all my symptoms and how I am feeling. Gives me all the time I need, and I really feel like I get good care there. They are also really super high tech, which is nice because both he and and his secretary just make everything much smoother. I would def suggest him to anyone.
