Carol is very understanding and listens fully. I appreciate that about her and I know she always has my best interest at hand but yet is willing to actually listen to me and my thoughts. Her bedside manner is "THE BEST" and I would recommend her to any of my family and friends.

Carol is amazing! I don't have enough kind words to say about her. She makes you feel comfortable and safe to ask any medical questions you have. She clearly cares about her patients and is absolute amazing human. I learn something new every visit. I'm grateful to have her as my nurse practitioner.

She did an amazing job explaining what was happening to my 5 year old so it made her more comfortable with what was happening during the appointment. She responded promptly when test results came in and we were able to get the medication that she needed to get feeling better. Thank you!

Yes, I went to Mcfarland Clinic in Marshalltown yesterday for my first appointment with Carol Barlow, and I was very impressed with her and her wonderful outgoing personality and her knowledge of my problem that I was having and she was very thorough. And I was impressed, highly impressed with her ability to accept me as a new patient. Thank you. Her ability to accept me, even though I was sorry to say that I was a little bit late, but she was very thorough in questioning me and we agreed on everything that we talked about. I was very pleased so I would give her a hundred percent. Thank you.
