About Dr. Barreto

Philosophy of care

My philosophy is to be compassionate and caring at all times. It's important to be there for you not only at a time of illness but also when things are going well so I can encourage good habits in your nutrition and ongoing health and wellness goals.

Why I entered medicine

I chose medicine because I wanted to help the sick and make them feel better. Throughout my career, I could do much more than that with decreasing the morbidity that is associated with so many illnesses. My goal is to keep my patients and those around me in positive health. I have had the privilege to work with multi-generational families and be a source of comfort during trying times.

Community involvement

I volunteer with several ministries at St. Jane’s parish, including the food pantry, St. Vincent de Paul Society and our parish health and wellness ministry.

Personal interests

I enjoy spending time playing piano, volunteering and practicing yoga.

Ratings and Reviews

About Our Ratings and Reviews

About our Survey

Our physicians and advanced practice clinicians (CRNPs and PA-Cs) are among the nation's best. That's why we show you patient satisfaction ratings and comments so you can read about and get to know our providers through the eyes of their patients.

To ensure our ratings and comments come only from verified patients, we work with NRC Health, a third-party organization. NRC Health sends patient satisfaction surveys on LVPG's behalf following an office visit or procedure. They ask patients about their impression of the health care provider and the doctor's or advanced practice clinician's communication skills.

What is included in the star rating?

Star ratings are based on a scale of 1-5 stars, 5 being the best. The rating includes responses to these provider-related questions:

  1. Physician Communication Questions
    1. Did this provider give you enough information about your health and treatment?
    2. Did this provider give you easy to understand information about your health questions and concerns?
    3. Did this provider listen carefully to you?
    4. Did this provider seem to know your medical history?
    5. Did you trust this provider with your care?
  2. Overall Provider Rating Question
    1. Using any number from 0 to 10, where 0 is the worst provider possible and 10 is the best provider possible, what number would you use to rate this provider?

Why don't all doctors or advanced practice clinicians have a rating?

In order to have enough data to measure and compare, a health care provider must have at least 30 completed patient satisfaction surveys. Surveys are included for a period of 12 months from submission.
