Barton Reviews


Trustpilot Logo Excellent Rating 5 Stars

Dr. Kathryn G. — I love the personal touch this company puts on working with physicians. My recruiter is always looking for new opportunities for me and has a real sense of what I am looking for and how certain positions would fit into my schedule and my other work. I consider her a friend now that we have worked together for almost 2 years.

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.

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