I had the pleasure of meeting Dr. Barba over 10 years ago here in CT. He has performed my gastric bypass surgery in 05 and my tummy tuck 2012. They recovery rate for both surgeries was 100% and I would HIGHLY recommend Dr. B and if needed would do it all over again with him. He's and his staff were compassionate, caring and very attentive you my needs. You can not go wrong in choosing Dr. Barba and staff.

I will assume he's great based on my friends experience. BUT,I got sooo discouraged with even calling. A lady named Simona didn't want to help me with questions I had. She said I'd have to wait till they have a seminar on the 27th of this month if I needed any questions answered.I was a uneasy about this whole thing.I decided to put it off. Dr. Barda, I hope your staff doesn't treat everyone like she did to me.Thanks.Just hope I can get motivated again to call being that my friend recommended u.
