    Dr. Barbera was very thorough and answered all of my questions. I know there was a bit of a wait to see her, but I know this is because she is spending as much time as is needed with each patient. I didn't feel rushed at all and she answered all of my questions, even searching for pictures on the internet to show me examples of what my retinal condition looks like. I appreciated that very much.
