Provider Bio

Dr. Barrio grew up in Northern California. He graduated from Stanford University Medical School and also did a pediatrics residency there. He considers himself a “water” person coming from several generations of Navy people on both sides of his family. It has been a longtime dream of Dr. Barrio’s to serve farm workers and their families in a community with a largely Hispanic population. “I grew up speaking Spanish and I wanted to work with a Spanish speaking population. Spanish was my first language. Dr. Barrio and his wife, Kali, like to play tennis, and go snow skiing as well as sailing. They also like to cook; favorite dishes are Aloo-gobi and Samoza – both East Indian dishes made with spices, vegetables and sometimes meat. Dr. Barrio lists wood working as a hobby. “It’s really more than a hobby for me. I love to build things from scratch. I raised a timber frame barn using leverage and manual tools and attached it to my house on Whidbey Island,” he said. Dr. Barrio and Kali have four children. They have a 17 year old son who is still in high school, another son and daughter in college and a 23 year old daughter who has graduated from college and joined the working world.
