Patient Comments (5)
Dr Barkhuizen is caring, thorough and an excellent diagnostician. He isn't a cookie cutter doctor. He thinks for himself. He's independent, not part of a huge clinic. That's VERY IMPORTANT because he makes his own rules. So if you need strong pain meds he is not afraid to give you a script for what you need!!

I was referred to Dr Barkhuizen for joint pain and fatigue around 2 years ago. He peppered me with questions, didn't allow me talk, basically threatened me with treatments like chemo if I "wanted" to be told I have Lupus. I told him I WANTED to find out what was wrong with me, not an unnecessary diagnosis. It was every patient's worst nightmare. He made me feel like a hypochondriac and I left in tears, never to return. I have Ehlers Danlos, PoTS and MCAS; not hypochondria.

Dr Barkhuizen is caring, answers questions, takes his time going over health changes and new plan of care. He is very professional as well as his staff. His nurse is great.

Excellent physician. He is always up to date on treatment options. Dr. B is positive and thoughtful and listens attentively to my concerns. I feel like I am part of every decision. I have recovered a lot of my functional living skills while still battling chronic pain and, I feel like I will continue to improve. His office staff are warm and caring and the clinic atmosphere is pleasant.

I found Dr. Barkhuizen to be a compassionate and attentive physician. I also liked his staff a great deal and I attended that clinic for more than 25 years. However, recently with staff turnover, I found myself in the care of a new person who simply was unable to insert a needle into my hand for my infusion. this person told me i was hard to stick and she often was unable to get the needle in after a number of sticks. As I result I had to change physicians. Very disappointing.
