Patient Comments (8)

If you like to wait an hour for a simple Coumadin check, then this place is for you. Appointment wait times are even worse, scheduled at 2, you’ll be lucky to see the doctor by 4. I would look for and Doctor that understands your time is just as important as his.

You wait forever for your appointment with him, at least 2 to 3 hours and wait in the room then to see him. This is unacceptable and looking for a new doctor.

This man has the worse bedside manner I have ever seen in my 46 years of life. He is very short and impatient he does NOT tell the patients the seriousness of their cancer. my father has cancer that is inoperable and DID NOT KNOW IT. This arrogant man needs to be stopped!!

Dr. Barai is very compassionate. He spent over 30 minutes explaining condition, treatment and outcome. He made me feel like I mattered and was not just a number. He is very knowledgeable and called several of my other physicians while I was there to assure that everyone was on the same page.
