Our Mission

To work together as a team to provide exceptional, professional, patient-oriented health care. Treat our patients as family; demonstrating compassion and respect for them both in the office and out in the community. Provide education and resources, enabling our patients to make informed lifestyle and health care decisions, maximizing their health and well-being.


Dr. Joseph C. Barbara has been practicing medicine and serving the Gilroy community for over thirty years. His son, John Barbara PA-C joined the practice in 2008. Together they specialize in Family Practice, priding themselves in treating all patients as they would their own family members. Both Dr. Barbara and John are bilingual in English and Spanish and take the time to answer all questions and thoroughly explain your medical conditions allowing you to make informed decisions regarding your individual care. Our office contracts with most insurances, which means that if your insurance changes, you can usually continue using us as your Primary Care Provider. Dr. Barbara and John are in high demand and we have a busy practice, but most of the time you can get an appointment within 1-3 days and we can usually make room in our calendar for urgent same-day sick visits. Dr. Barbara’s practice cares for the medical needs of your entire family. We see babies who are days old all the way to our oldest patient of 102!
