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.

My brother and I waited three hours in the office before we spoke with this doctor. We consider this to be very unprofessional and poor patient care. The staff and physician should have kept us informed as to why such a delay or, offer to reschedule. The type of patients that put their trust in this doctor are very sick, weak and weary. They should not have to wait three hours to see a physician. I am very disappointed with the lack of communication and consideration demonstrated today.

Dr. Barai was seeing my mother for cancer about 2 months ago when she first was diagnosed . He Prescribed her medication, sent her to a surgeon, and saw her for follow ups appointments. Then days before when is was time for my mother to have her mastectomy. Dr. Barai's office called her and canceled all her appointments. Telling my mother that her insurance won't cover it. When doesn't Medicaid not cover breast cancer?? We called medicaid , and it was a LIE. Dr. Barai saw my mother for about

Dr, Atassi is a kind an compassionate man who cares deeply for his patients. He takes time to explain the procedures in the office and before surgery in the surgery waiting area. Dr Atassi installed my port-a-cath recently and performed my wife's mastectomy in 2009. She is still with me and in good health thanks of first rate care from a great oncologist Dr. B. H. Barai
