      It was the best experience I have ever had with any Doctors office. From Dr Barkan to the girls in his office, his surgical coordinator and his nurses they were all caring and very helpful.

      Why Does Experience Matter?

      Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.

      Dr. Barkan's Care Philosophy

      Winthrop Surgical Associates believes in caring for the patient as a whole being.  Reflecting on the patients that have come to see us and have had their family members come back to us is one of the best referrals because it shows that our care shows through.  We are glad that our patients trust us, and then trust us with their family members... we appreciate how truly important that is.
