Locum Tenens Healthcare Success Stories

Barton Reviews

Debra W., Healthcare Professional- "My experience with Barton Associates has been excellent. I have been pleased with and have had very positive experiences with the assignments that I have received. I plan to continue to work with Barton."

Stacy W., Healthcare Professional - "The agent I work with is great communicator, efficient, gets me answers quickly, negotiates my contract for optimal pay and other benefits, and actively looks for future assignments.

I was in a hotel temporarily, while looking for a furnished apartment as this assignment was a quick placement, and smokers next door caused my room to have cigarette smoke. Upon requesting new location to alternate hotel (as I had already been moved to alternate room with the problem still present by another guest) the agent promptly replied asking me when I wanted to move and had me an alternate hotel reserved and ready within the hour. This spoke highly to me on their value of taking care of their traveling providers."

Susan S., Healthcare Professional - "Prompt pay. Great customer service!"
