Very good doctor only thing is when we agreed on injection for my foot pain I wasn't told what was being used nor effects or side effects to expect. Also injection was not noted as part of treatment received therefore I didn't know what was used nor told he wanted to see me again in 3 mths. After I got home and reviewed paperwork that was when I realized another appt. needed to be made.

Dr Barrow is the only surgeon that could help me. I saw 5 specialists prior to him ,and now thanks to Craig Barrow I have a new ankle! not a fused one but a movable functional ankle.

My experiences with Dr. Barrow could not have better. He and his staff were very responsive to all of my questions.

Xray staff needs to be more considerate of patients who have stability issues due to physical restrictions etc. Not enough places to hold onto if youve just had surgery and they seem to think just repeating instructions makes it all better. Ive felt very uneasy stability wise almost evetytime ive recieved xrays at this office. Ive had toes amputated and hips replaced and told to just stand in ways that are very difficult. a lil human compassion goes a long ways to make your patients feel more comfortable

Dr. Barrow is extremely attentive during visit which is for follow-up on heel surgery. His nurse assistant, [...], was more than helpful for me with a referral. I wouldn't say she had bulldog instincts to get the job done, but extremely close to that!

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.

I would definitely use Dr.Barrows and his assistant [...], and the nurses in the prep and recovery room were awesome they took my mind off of the surgery I was about to have.
