Patient

Dr. BARRERA is the best. I highly recommend him. My visit and results were amazing. The quality of his work left minimal scars after just one month of surgery. His staff made me feel very comfortable and relaxed. I cannot express how PLEASED i am at my results in just one month of post surgery. Thank you Dr. Barrera for an outstanding job. May God continue to bless you helping others.

1 J. Michael Adame – Jul 24, 2020

Patient

My first post op surgery follow up visit was expedient, pain free and I immediately experienced nasal breathing without the resistance I had grown accustomed to. It’s so nice to breathe freely again. I was also surprised at the minimal swelling observed. His staff is also extremely welcoming and always professional. I’m very pleased with my overall experience.

1 Jul 21, 2020

Patient

The lady in the front desk was very caring. Jeniffer was helpful and humble. She talks about different finance options to help. On the other hand Dr.Barerra made me feel as if my condition wasn’t bad enough. I quote “out of everything in the world, this is what’s bothering you”? It was him and his side kick. I went in for my acne scarring on my forehead. I just wanted improvement and I told them that. Not perfection. Even though I paid the fee it felt as though I was wasting his time. But I was hoping to just get some good news instead of being laughed at since my grandfather passed from covid Thursday or have them telling me his son situation was worse. I understand but I just wanted to see improvement with my scar. Not perfection. I should have asked the lady for my 75 dollar consultation fee back. Also recommending facial washes that aren’t really available for everyone like Epionce. I’m not wasting money to make my skin worse.

1 Sonia Castillo – Jul 17, 2020

Patient

He was very attentive and understood what I wanted my lips look amazing as well as my non invasive nose job and dysport I had on my forehead and crows feet truly amazing, highly recommend and friendly staff..

1 D.B. – Jul 15, 2020

Patient

Visited Dr. Barrera's office for a consultation for under eye and lip fillers. Choosing an M.D., not a day-spa with unlicensed technicians, was important. After visiting several comparable doctors, Dr. Barrera and his staff stood out as being extremely helpful. Dr. Barrera's knowledge and expertise were greatly appreciated. I would definitely recommend them to anyone. Now I look refreshed and I feel amazing! Thanks Dr. Barrera!

Very professional and informative

2 Danae Velasquez – Jun 09, 2020

Patient

I can honestly say that Dr.Barrera and his staff have been the absolute best! Never had trouble getting a hold of Dr.Barrera or scheduling visits/ surgery. I myself trusted Dr.Barrera in performing my rhinoplasty and I am completely in love with the results! By far the best decision in choosing and trusting Dr.Barrera in regards to my rhinoplasty.

2 May 21, 2020

Patient

4 months post op rhinoplasty. Highly recommend Dr. Barrera, he has magical hands, not only did he make my nose perfect but my breathing has improved. Words will never express how grateful I am.

Patient

Dr. Barrera and his staff are amazing! My first visit I was nervous but after talking to Dr Barrera I knew I had made the right decision. He took the time to answer all of my questions and address my concerns. And I couldn’t be happier with my results!!

1 Patsy Wright – Mar 10, 2020

Patient

Dr Barrera is the best.I just had a face/neck lift one week ago and i can not believe it.I am 66 and had excess skin under my neck and it is gone.Hardly any pain or bruising.Not only is he magnificent but his staff is the same.They treat you like family and honestly care.One thing i want to point out that makes Dr Barrera stand out being the best is he ask me what i wanted to do.I did not want to be pulled or look like someone else and meeting a another top plastic surgeon who a friend recommended immediately went in telling what he would do.Never ask what i wanted.There is always more that can be done but let that be your deceision.I did not do eyes eyebrows or anything else because they were not bad and did not want anyone to really know what i had done.He has made me so happy and i was so scared to do this.I am not a wealthy woman and saved for almost a year to do this so i knew with all my research he was the doctor for me.You will be pleased.Thank you again Dr Barrera and staff.

When deciding to let someone snip & cut on parts of your body especially the face, it is crucial to find an experienced surgeon whom you fully can trust. After reading reviews after reviews I found that Dr. Jose Barrera would be the best choice for me. Not only is Dr. Barrera a skilled & experienced Surgeon, he's also listed as the Best among all of the best Plastic Surgeons in town. After my 1st visit with Dr. Barrera and his staff, all anxiety & doubts that I had brought with me had simply vanished. The whole procedure were explained to me step by step in a kind and calmly manner. Besides being an outstanding surgeon, Dr. Barrera also has the gift of connecting with his patients and putting them at ease. I can full heartedly and confidently recommend Dr. Barrera to anyone in search for a Surgeon who knows his profession & his patients. In one word: "Dr. Barrera and his Staff are phenomenal".

Truly enjoyed my visit. THANK YOU!!!

Consulted with Dr. B for options for facial rejuvenation, especially to help my festoon. He and staff have thoroughly explained how CO2 laser would benefit me. Knowing how knowledgeable and skillful he is, I booked for this procedure next month.

Dr. Barrera is an absolute magician. My septoplasty was painless and thanks to his artisan work, I healed quickly. Best of all — I can now breathe correctly for the first time in my life.

2 Dale Musser in San Antonio, TX – Feb 24, 2019

Patient

If I could give Dr. Jose Barrera 10 stars I would! I had Otoplasty done and couldn't be happier! Dr. Barrera and his team were extremely professional and did not complete the surgery until they were completely satisfied with their work. He actually reshapes the ear to look natural. His fee was competitive with other medical offices offering similar surgery. Dr. Barrera is truly amazing and I am still amazed at his completed work. I did extensive research and found over 100 5 star reviews. With

The entire staff is amazing! Everyone there is genuinely concerned about Dr. Barrera’s patients. I’ve been there many times and I’ve never had to wait beyond my appointment time.

1 Jan 01, 2019

Patient

Before scheduling my procedure with Dr. Barrera, I had several consultations with him. Every single time he was genuine, kind, and frank about expectations. The listened to all of my concerns and didn't forget about any of them. I went forward with the procedure because I felt he understood me well, and because he took the time to explain his plan for me in a detailed manner. I felt that I was in good hands. I'm happy with the results so far and confident to recommend his practice.

Donnette Reynolds in San Antonio – Jan 01, 2019

Patient

I went to see Dr. Barrera for a preppier review prior to my facelift in January 2019. I’ve had two previous facelifts,and I must say that neither of the two previous doctors was anywhere near as thorough in checking everything out prior to surgery. I feel confident that I am in good hands. Also, he spent a lot of time showing me exactly what he was going to do during the surgery. Overall an excellent visit.

1 San Antonio, TX – Dec 20, 2018

Patient

Dr. Barrera is warm and friendly and so is his staff. The office is efficient and I had minimal to no wait with each visit. Dr. Barrera removed an osteoma from my forehead and I’m so happy with the results; I only wish I had done it sooner! Dr. Barrera has a warm and friendly bedside manner and spent the time to fully explain his plan and make sure my questions were answered even with my simple procedure. Thank you to Dr. Barrera and team!

1 Natural Results in San Antonio, TX – Oct 21, 2018

Patient

Dr. Barrera is very kind and genuine. He gives you his full attention and answers any questions and concerns. I have gone to other doctors in the SA area who have done more harm than good. Dr. Barrera has had to correct several previous procedures done by other doctors. My only regret is not meeting him sooner. Do not go anywhere else in SA. You are in good hands with him. His staff is also attentive and helpful during the whole process. Don’t risk botched procedures go to him first.

2 Teri S in San Antonio, TX – Sep 22, 2018

Patient

I have complex regional pain disorder in my right arm. I went to Dr. Jose Barrera for laser hair removal because of the difficulty with shaving. I left the clinic in intense pain. I returned 3 days later as my legs were blistering and still very painful. Dr. Barrera told me everything was normal and sent me away without any treatment or follow up appointments. My dermatologist gave me several antibiotic ointments to minimize scarring and told me to stay out of the pool and sun all summer.

1 N. Watson – Aug 24, 2018

Judy in Spring Branch, TX – Jan 20, 2018

Patient

I know that Dr Barrera is an excellent physician/surgeon as my husband has been his patient for quite some time. Now it’s my turn. Dr Barrera has a unique ability to put you completely at ease while discussing complex (& frightening) cosmetic procedures. He listened to my concerns and presented a solution that made me feel totally comfortable. His new office with its own surgical suite means no hospital trip. And his staff is the best. They make you feel like part of the family.

Dr. Barrera is very professional and has such a calming manner which makes him very easy to talk to.

Dr. Barrera has put together an incredible team that support his skills in the most amazing way! He has performed more than one surgery on me, and has greatly enhanced the quality of my life by his knowledge of sleep disorders. From the front office staff, to his nurse, the facility he chooses his assisting surgeon and the anesthesiologist. The quality of care is remarkable and the results have been better than I expected.

1 Eve Valdez in Rio Grande City, TX – Sep 01, 2017

I consulted a couple of other surgeon’s, but automatically felt at ease when consulting with Dr. Barrera. He listened to all my needs, I was still apprehensive coming into the surgery (as anyone would), but in the end he exceeded all my goals and expectations! I would recommend him without reservation, from his staff to the pre and post op, I felt so comfortable and welcome there. I am loving my new nose!

1 Lydia in Texas – May 06, 2017

Patient

Very knowledgeable, trust worthy and experienced doctor! Caring and helpful staff. Would highly recommend him for laser resurfacing. I had severe acne scars and was looking into laser resurfacing options to improve the texture of my face. I am grateful that Dr. Barrera was honest and straight forward from the beginning. He took the time to study case and presented available options. I removed moles and scars from face using laser treatments. I've had 3 treatments and I'm very happy with results.

My nose was really messed up by another doctor, and Dr. Barrera fixed it. He did such a wonderful job that you can't even tell that there was anything wrong with it! Dr. Barrera is such an amazing doctor. He listens to your concerns, is very knowledgeable, and the best doctor in San Antonio for your face! I highly recommend Dr. Barrera for any surgery of your face.

2 4 Lou K in San Antonio, TX – Nov 26, 2016

Patient

My daughter had 2 erbium laser treatments at $900 each and 1 Co2 treatment at the hospital for $3,500, Dr Barrera assured her acne scars would be much better, perhaps gone but they're not, much to the contrary. They actually look worse. We did everything he said to do. We discussed with him afterward, but he's dismissive unsympathetic and uncaring. He said, wait a year, that is how long it may take for her to see progress and there's none. She has her hands covering her face all the time, sad.

2 Allen A Steward IV in San Antonio , TX – Nov 14, 2016

Patient

I would recommend Dr. Barrera to family and friends. I had such a positive experience and felt I was treated with the utmost respect. Dr Barrera listened to me and understood my situation and provided options. Overall just extremely satisfied. .

2 3 Philadelphia, PA – Mar 31, 2016

Patient

My life has changed since meeting Dr. Barrera, not for the better. I went to Dr. Barrera, after hearing great things, for revision rhinoplasty. I can't describe how disfigured I look! He performed a dramatic surgery in which he removed so much of my nose and tried to reshape it. My nose is warped, the tip of it is curved up that you can see into my nostrils andnot straight on my nose but rotated to the side. Lots of indentations and bumps. Now I am seeking a competent doc to redo.

2 Al Rodriguez in San Antonio, TX – Feb 20, 2016

Patient

Excellent, on my first appointment the Doctor spent at least an hour discussing my sleep apnea problem with me ! Prior to the Dr performing surgery i was borderline diabetic with severe apnea . After a tripple P and 6 treatments to the base of the tongue i am no longer with severe apnea and no longer borderline diabetic. I have discovered that Dr Barrera being out of my insurance network is not a problem because he will work with you ! He has improved my life, Thanks Dr Barrera
