He has been with Ear, Nose, and Throat Specialists of Florida, the longest tenured ENT practice in Lee County, since moving to the area in 1992. He evaluates both adult and pediatric patients with a wide variety of disorders of the ear, nose and throat, and treats them both medically and surgically as necessary.

He also has extensive experience dealing with cancer of the head and neck, having trained with attending surgeons and fellows at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center in Manhattan. Dr. Barrow continues to maintain his training and experience with up to date, state of the art, treatment modalities of the nose and sinuses. These techniques involve less invasive, in-office treatments that formally would have only been performed in a hospital setting. Dr. Barrow loves living in Southwest Florida, experiencing and participating in its substantial growth through the years. In his spare time, he enjoys spending time with his family, travelling, skiing, and playing golf, tennis, and racquetball. Dr. Barrow is currently accepting new patients at his two office locations in Cape Coral and Lehigh Acres.
