Dr. Richard M. — Barton is THE BEST! Everyone I have talked to has been very professional and wonderful to work with. I want to especially give a great shout out to Jackson Hogan and Nick Viveiros. Each man has been so exceptional in every way. They keep a close line of communication, advising me of everything that is going on and needs to yet be done in the very complex process of getting my husband, Dr Richard Martin, licensed to work in South Dakota, and Jackson was been superb in looking for work for him to do. We aren't finished yet, but we do plan on a long and successful association with Barton for years to come.

Dr. Cynthia O., D.O. — I have always enjoyed and hope to continue the working relationship I have with Barton Associates. I really especially enjoy working with Anthony Grace who has always and continues to be very courteous, and professional and caring. He is indeed a great asset to your agency. Dr. Owens.
