Dr. Labarbera is excellent. He has great insight and unique understanding & experience with interpreting the intelligence & achievement testing.

this was a first appointment 4 just the caregivers and not the child.
Patient | January 31, 2018

The doctor has only spent the parent meeting with me at this time. My daughter's testing will be in two weeks but I feel confident the care will be the same as mine if not better.
Patient | January 31, 2018

Very hard to understand all his medical terms very condescending.
Patient | September 6, 2017

When taking family history, he told me that the medicine I am taking for anxiety was thought of by professionals as only a placebo. Whey would you say that to someone with anxiety? Why? So while he was great with my son, I question his professional judgement.

He is obviously extremely qualified to do what he does. Probably the smartest person we have worked with @ Vandy so far.
Patient | August 3, 2017

Dr. Labarbera was very attentive and understanding. Was very thorough. I would recommend him to anyone having any emotional or mental issues.
