Amazing doctor
I saw Dr. Barash in the hospital and was so impressed with his knowledge of medications. He is really smart and good at figuring out which combination of medications will help, even when you’ve tried nearly everything.

In the 2 years I saw him, each visit he probably only spent 3 minutes with me just to refill my medication and each visit instead left a different intern to assess me. The only real conversation we had about my mental health, he showed 0 empathy and compassion. Comparing me (while I was in a very bad state of depression due to an assault) to his own children, not even trying to understand why I was depressed and instead opting to up my medications. The worst psychiatrist I've ever had.

I had been with Dr. Barash for several years when he dropped me as a patient with no warning. I may have a lot of mental heath problems, but that is no reason to abandon a patient. He makes you feel less than enough and talks down to you when you don't agree with him. In a crisis he did more harm than good. His office wait times are ridiculous and you always have to see a med student before you can even see Dr. Barash and if you are unfortunate enough to need the hospital for extra help, let's just say it isn't pretty. I wouldn't recommend him. There are better options out there.

I have worked at a facility that Brian Barash was a psychiatrist at and having worked at similar facilities, I can say that he is one of the most unprofessional physicians I have worked with. Among many negative experiences, one that sticks out the most was when I brought a client in (who was admitted for suicide), they just prior had a terrible meeting with their family who berated them and brought them to tears. In short, they were having a depressive meltdown when Dr. Barash was scheduled to see them. Upon seeing them bawling and barely able to breathe from sobs, he said that if they were not going to talk with him that they were wasting his him and he wouldn't bother looking at their medication that day. They were so much worse having spent 2 minutes with him. This kind of interaction was typical for Dr. Barash.

Our family has been very well taken care of by the entire staff of CPA. They have always shown their joy in having us come for our appointments and by helping us schedule new appointments. Dr. Barash has been a God-send with his extensive knowledge of medications and his expertise with serious psychiatric conditions. When no one else could balance the right medications or treatment Dr. Barash was able to. He has been very compassionate and straight forward. He respects a patient by letting them help decide what treatments to follow.

Dr. Barash is a money driven man. If you are ever blessed to be in his presence just remember you will not be done with your treatment until you insurance stops paying. They will find new problems to diagnose you with just to hold you for more days. The more days they hold you the more money they can get out of you and your insurance company. You will be forced to take pills or he will court appoint them. The pills he gives you are based off of a diagnosis generated by 600 question test that you take on the computer. I would never send your child or loved one to him. My family did and it was the worst nightmare of our life.

Dr. Barash is rude, rushed and overworked. We have met with him a few times for our daughter and his bedside manor is horrible. He doesn't take time to actually establish a rapport with his clients and even said at one point to my autistic daughter dealing with depression/anxiety that he didn't have time for her to decide to answer. He did nothing to develop trust or establish any form of connection.

My son is schizophrenic and not med-compliant. Dr. Barash skillfully persuaded him to go with monthly injections. His practice is set up for patient convenience and the staff is efficient and kind. This is the Satan of mental illnesses, but Dr. Barash manages to give a sense of hope, and that is deeply appreciated.

Words can not explain how this Doctor has saved my family. He got my husband on the right medication and helped navigate him to a sober pathway. When our daughter was on the brink of suicide, Dr. Barash stepped in and helped her to get her life straightened out. My family is so absolutely grateful for this doctor. We have utilized the walk in clinic and had the chance to meet other office providers and were so happy with their care as well. Thanks! JT

I have been with Dr. Barash for a short time and he is friendly, knowledgeable and thorough. I have been with some truly awful Psychiatrists that shouldn't be practicing and others who were fantastic. I would put Dr. Barash high on my list but probably not at the top. Having said that, I listen to his advice and trust what he says... although I do my own studying. He seems to care for his patients and that matters.
