Review of Dr. Fresco


Surgery was fine and she's a great doctor but, she's spread between 3 hospitals and follow-ups take a back-seat to her busy schedule. On top of that, the staff at the Bayshore Bariatric center can't get anything right. They had to correct my birth-date in the file prior to surgery. Dr. Fresco cancelled my follow-up appt, but the staff scheduling the appt. had entered an incorrect # in the system. Instead of checking my file, they kept calling the wrong #, so I showed up with no appt.

Review of Dr. Fresco

- in Bloomfield, NJ |

I've been seeing Dr. Fresco now for follow-ups on my yearly Mammograms for a complete Well Care Breast Control. It always makes you feel so good after you receive a good report and also know that you are in good hands with Dr. Fresco. She is the most compassionate, warm and caring Doctor. She listens to what you have to say and your concerns and you never feel rushed. She is the best!!! I recommend her to my family and friends.

Review of Dr. Barbalinardo

- in Maplewood, NJ |

I was not operated on by Dr Baralinardo, but his sincerity and judgement was precisely the reason I was lucky to avoid emergency surgery, through alternative antibiotic treatment. I have no doubt his input was a determining factor in allowing an alternative approach. Dr Baralinardo looks at the overall picture and appears not to be biased by the surgical approach as default.

Review of Dr. Fresco

- in Clifton, NJ |

If it wasn't for Dr.Fresco I would still be dealing with undiagnosed pain. All of my tests were coming back negative for 7 weeks. No one could figure out what was going on. Dr.Fresco got to the bottom of my pain and discovered an ovarian hernia. I am one week post op and pain free. She is awesome. I felt comfortable with her. I would highly recommend her to anyone!

Review of Dr. Barbalinardo

-Rahway, NJ |

I've interacted with Dr Barbalinardo several times and never had a bad experience. 4 years ago I had a colonoscopy, and the treatment was perfect.... my wife had a colonoscopy , treatment was perfect... I had several office visits over the past 4 years and have always been treated well, and honestly.
