Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Barkan "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."

Patient Comments (2)
in East Meadow, NY |
He is an excellent surgeon. Pain after surgery was just about non existent. I believe that was due to his skill.
in Oceanside, NY |
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.
