Ratings for Dr. Lisa B. Barr
She seems to push her own agenda and has become insurance driven. I can see any ortho for steroids. But that will not permanently heal soft tissue injuries. I cannot tolerate meds which any one can prescribe. Cannot get clear info on her injection methods. Many RIT practitioners will not use flouro to subject injured tissue/stem cells to ionizing radiation. Why kill the cells you are trying to inject? I have had over a thousand prolo injections but I found a dr. at Vitality Med, Stavrakos, in SC with impeccable training/credentials. His pleasent demeanor would be a plus for many. I only care he gets results.
Non caring. When she can't fix you its your fault. Or the problem is in your head and you need psych counseling. Yea right. New doctors and treatment regime and I'm on the road to pain free. Been told I will never be fixed by several doctors. PCP and specialist. I certainly won't refer anyone to her facility
Ahh, my review of Dr. Barr, well not DR. barr in four visits I have seen her once for about 30 seconds where she called me a drug addict and walked out of the room when i tried to defend myself and get some answers. This place is a money factory. They care not for their patients. Every test they ordered was wrong. two tests did not specify what body part and then one test that did say what part was the wrong part. They are unintelligent fools sucking money out of an already broke system ... DR, BARRS OFFICE IS AN EXAMPLE OF WHAT IS WRONG WITH THE MEDICAL SYSTEM TODAY. I was told I need to go to to physical therapy three times a week when my insurance did not cover PT at her place i asked for a prescription so I can go to one that is approved by my insurance only to be told at this point PT is not important. The nurse at the front desk told me I can not get a copy of my MRI and that since they ordered it any other doctor would have to request it from them not to imaging center. I went to MRI/CT diagnostics(135 for an MRI if you have optima and no waiting for it to be approved) I have no idea what type of knowledge these doctors have but they did not use it on me. I don't even think they knew what was bothering me when they walked in the room. so i was called a drug addict and told "I am doing you a favor" when pain meds were not prescribed, all tests done were ordered wrong, i was treated differently before and after i said my insurance is not going to cover PT and i'm not paying 135 dollars, and they made a big to do about getting me an MRI making me wait three weeks to order it when they could have ordered it on my first appointment since mri/ct diagnostics will only charge optima patients 135 dollars. Oh yeah. I went to the chiropractor assuming nothing needing attention was wrong wince they never contacted me after receiving results(the bitchy nurse informed me if there was anything wrong on my mri as soon as it is sent over they will call me and let me know and that if i hear nothing that is a good thing). I went to the chiropractor and she was able to pop my spine back in place and i know how feeling in my arms and i am able to function without dehibilitating pain. if you are looking for relief from pain, an answer to a question about your spinal health, some compassion, or to be treated as a human being DO NOT GO HERE. .
Went there for lower back pain she was recommended by 2 long time friends that are Doctors. I felt they knew her well and so I used her for 3 to 4 months. Seen her 3 times I think and a nerve Doctor 1 time that stuck pins in my right leg lol. She had to turn up the equipment all the way for one nerve to react and told me all is well just keep going to physical therapy. Oh and read the back to all new patients’ for a referral to physical therapy as when I went there it has a disclosure that states something about the physical therapy is owned by her or she has a interest in it lol. I was going 3 times a week with a co pay of 30 or 50 dollars each physical therapy visit. What a waste of time and money she didn’t help at all. I wouldn’t recommend her to anyone.
After 3 failed neck surgeries, I found myself unable to work. Dr. Barr was the only one to understand that just because you look okay doesn't mean you are not in severe pain. She was sble to help me retire on disability. Even though it took almost 2 years with no money coming in before my retirement was aporoved, without Dr. Barr it would never have gone through and I don't know what I would have done.
You know its no wonder our health care in the US is the way it is today. You have Doctors like Lisa BARR claiming they are God's gift to their profession, but instead they charge THOUSANDS of dollars for rudeness, incinserity, incompetence, and they I AM STILL IN PAIN! Oh but wait, its my fault so I should take anti-depressants thats right! God forbid you didn't help me, so let me rude to my patients and blame them for their pain. UNBELIEVABLE! I will thank her for one thing. I have learned to do my homework. I would have seen soooooo many people on different websites talk about how horrible she is.....Dr. Lisa Barr......Giant FAIL!
Like many other reporting patients, Dr. Barr tried to suggest that I needed anti-depressents after being with me for less than 2 minutes. She also did Prolo therapy( extremely painful and expensive)on my hip, before ordering an MRI that reveiled 2 slipped discs in my lower back were the source of pain. Her PA saw me at 90% of my visits. He also hit my tailbone with a needle (more extreme pain).
If you plan on seeing Lisa Barr, think again. All you will see is her PA (nice name for assistant) Lisa will drop in for 10 seconds or so but thats the only thing going on there. God forbid you want to see her, be ready to wait around for HOURS!!! This visit will all start off with the great and courteous attention of one of the most straight faced individuals I have ever seen. NO SMILE WHAT SO EVER....Don't think she has ever heard of the word....But hey, if you like this kind of service then go right ahead....I suggest you do a Google search on her before you make a decision. Check out what tons of other people have said...
First it is extremely hard to get an appointment even when you are a current patient. Wait time is long. Dr. Barr can be rude, and a patient doesn't dare question any treatment. Now you usually see her P A. She will override his suggestions when he is correct, because she does not have the entire facts, just a few minutes to make a snap decision. Over a time her patient care has deteriorated. I could not recommend her especially for chronic or long term pain management.
My relationship with Dr. Barr started out great and I just knew she would be my savior from constant back pain. She is an expert in her field. After surgery, pt, and several other procedures I'm still in pain. She has stopped all pain meds but prescribed anti-depressants. I'm miserable. Calls to make appt. to discuss are not returned. When I do get to see her, she says the staff never notified her of my call. Dr. Barr seems to have become impatient with me and is sometimes rude. I guess we're both feeling stuck. I don't blame her for my situation, I just want some relief.
