Review of Dr. Barad

-CA |

The patient reviews regarding this physician's attitude (lack of empathy, etc.) are accurate. I went to Stanford with the hope that they could help me (as they have with numerous family members over the years as one of the best hospitals in America). I was told after they studied my case, that they were almost sure they could. Then I met Dr. Barad - and it only went downhill from there. No bedside manner. God complex. No compassion. She made many stereotypical remarks and assumptions. And in the end, said she would not treat me after presenting a part of treatment in the form of an option (if it was not an option, why make it appear as one). She then just walked out of the room and did not return. I never saw her again. Her assistant (who was much more helpful) appeared dumbfounded by her actions. In the end, I left in tears. I did not stop crying for hours, and her actions left me feeling hopeless and with a question as to why I would even want to continue living for quite some time.

Review of Dr. Barad

- in San Jose, CA |

Neuropathic pain patient, resulting in total disability. I have 5 years of interaction with Barad. She never read the initial evaluation of my case, w/recommendations for 1/2 the medications I am now on, 8 years later. She dismissed my condition to a 'bad attitude'. Apparently, she has never heard of "restless leg syndrome", nor the single low dose medicinal cure. I can vouch for the veracity of every single 1* rating in this list, having experienced the exact same behaviors.

Review of Dr. Qian

-CA, CA |

An excellent surgeon, always thoroughly checking everything required for my best results. Sensitive to my needs and what will eliminate unnecessary pain. A wonderful Doctor and humanitarian, I have even followed him to the hospital location that I would rather not go to just to have someone I trust with my procedures and health.

Review of Dr. Mehlberg

- in Lafayette , CO |

I have lower disc problems in my back and came to Dr Mehlberg allergic to most narcotic medications. He is absolutely wonderful! He suggested a lesser known non narcotic medication and it has literally been a miracle medication for me! He is very kind and patient and really cares! He is very responsive to phone messages as well. His staff is also wonderful and kind!

Review of Dr. Barad

-San Francisco, CA |

Heinous. After waiting over an hour, I was told by a nurse that I would be waiting 20 more minutes. Why? The doctor had two students with her, which causes excessive delay in her schedule EVERY TIME because a student sees the patient before Barad does. Why don't they schedule fewer patients on these days? This is just how their schedule works. Why wasn't I told sooner? No reason. Then Barad snapped at me and told me I could leave. I did. And I'm filing a complaint and looking into other action.

Review of Dr. Mehlberg

- in CO |

Dr. Mehlberg is a fantastic doctor. He is very competent and he always knows the newest health methods, procedures, prescriptions and methods. He always discusses procedures and new medications to me so I can understand it. He is very competent and I trust him entirely. Dr. Mehlberg has made a significant improvement to my health, when many others have given up or made things worse. His staff is also fabulous and I trust every one of them. They are all well trained and competent in their work.

Review of Dr. Barad

- |

Very rude and dismissive. Of course if you look at Stanford's own rating system every single doctor gets 5/5 stars. But that is all nonsense. This is the first time in my life i left a doctor's office feeling depressed and of course i never went back. Just an awful human being.

Review of Dr. Leong

-CA |

My 1st appt was to last for 90 minutes. It lasted for barely 30 minutes. Numerous inaccuracies ( re: medications, sections of presenting symptoms, other information provided by patient). I might have been listened to, but was definitely not HEARD, in my opinion. I have been seen by truly outstanding physicians at Stanford. Unhappily, Dr. Leong did not prove to be one of them.

Review of Dr. Mehlberg

- in Westminster, CO |

Dr. Mehlberg is the most kind and caring doctor that I have met in over 15 years. He is sweet as can be, VERY professional and he took the time not just to listen to my needs, wants and concerns... but he sat down and explained things to me about my condition and situation that not one single doc in the past had bothered to do. I have spent 15 years suffering and not knowing that I DO have options. Once he saw how nervous I was, he immediately took to setting my mind at ease!
