We like the fact that Carol takes the time with her patient's. She takes the time to listen, and learn, about the under going issue. She does a great job at resolving any issue, if any.

Carol Barlow does an outstanding job. I have had several different Caregivers in the past few years and Carol by far has been my favorite. She explains things and will even have a good laugh with me. She rates 5 Star with me……

Carol always explains what is going on and what steps, if any, are needed to keep me healthy.

Carol is the best!!! I always look forward to seeing her, though I am thankful that I don’t need to very often. She is thorough - and thoroughly professional - but also kind and fun. That is an excellent mix of characteristics in a care-giver.

Easy to talk to, projects caring & understanding of needs while staying professional. Talks with you, not to you, and takes time to listen to your responses. Carol is very meticulous in the way she reviews your chart each time she sees you. She keeps up on meds, bloodwork, whatever you may be due for outside of her purview, like eye exams. If you see other doctors, she also reviews your chart to see how that’s going and asks you about that. Carol is a very conscientious doctor. She makes sure she has all the information she needs and has access to, to best treat her patients. I loved Ann Jones. I’m very thankful Carol is here.

Carol is very thorough and direct and honest. We don't know exactly what is causing pain, but she seems to be determined to find the cause, which makes me feel very safe and secure in her hands. My anxiety level went way down after seeing her.

She took time to explain her thoughts, provided feedback and recommendations that aligned with my health goals, and I could tell she was very intentional in not rushing. She reviewed my history and examined my chart for important context. I left knowing exactly what the next steps would be related to my lab needs and potential follow-up. Her team offered the flu and Covid booster, and provided it immediately.
