What People Say About Dr. Alexandru Barboi, MD

Dr Barboi gave me my life back. I had struggled with health issues that were at times debilitating. After visiting other neurologists, he ran a couple of non evasive tests and had me on a medication that within hours changed my life. I hadn’t done any kind of activity in two years. Now I am living a full, active life again. Thank God for Drs like Dr. Barboi!

I saw Dr. Barboi at the request of my neurologist. I went through 3 hours of autonomic testing. He was in the room with me the entire time. He was incredibly thorough. He came in and explained the results immediately after and gave me tips and treatment options. He is a "go to" expert for EDS and autonomic dysfunction. He is hard to schedule appointments with, but if you have EDS, he should not be your main physician-- your rheumatologist should be. He does regularly talk with my other drs.

The staff are unprofessional, disrespectful and incompetent. I had an EMG and was told I would hear from the.doctor in a few days. When I called a couple of weeks later I was assured the someone would call within the hour after 3 hrs I went to the office where I was given excuses. I was and am in extreme pain they gave me an antidepressant which did nothing. I got a copy of the report was told to see my PCD for pain meds and am awaiting an apology. There is no follow up or caring

This doctor saw me once and determined that I had POTS. He did not explain what that was and did not address many other symptoms that I had and did not tell me what I could do to get better. His next appointment was over 6 months away because he has too many patients. Good luck ever seeing him more than one time. Other than a diagnosis which may not be true after all, he did not help me at all which is appalling. I did not witness any teamwork at Northshore either as they claim.

I would definitely recommend this doctor to anyone having an issue that they can't solve! I've been experiencing a condition for 6 years and have seen more than 30 doctors around the country and have been given the wrong diagnosis many different times! This doctor is very intelligent and very thoughtful he spent over 2 hours with my parents and with me to give the correct diagnosis of POTS! Dr. Barboi is DEFINITELY HIGHLY RECOMMENDED! The staff is very FRIENDLY too!

Dr. Barboi is an excellent physician. He spent ample time answering my questions during my appointment. He is always quick to respond to email messages and truly cares for his patients. Dr. Barboi was one of the only physicians I dealt with who listened to all of my symptoms and correctly diagnosed me. Highly recommended!!

Dr. Barboi is one of the friendliest easiest to get along with doctors that I have known. He is incredibly intelligent and was able to diagnose my autonomic dysfunction after I had seen several doctors and was told that it was all in my head. He saved my life on a couple of different occasions. I have never felt more well then when I was treated by him and I'm sorry that he no longer lives in my area. I have referred friends and family to see him as well.

A complete misdiagnosis... telling me I had a serious disease. I had to wait 2.5 months until an associate said I did not have a disease.
