Dr. Barish is both incredibly skilled and very compassionate. I was terrified of my first upper GI endoscopy and Dr Barish went way beyond the call of duty to allow me to get this accomplished with e least trauma possible. I just dread the day he retires! Not soon, I hope!

Poor bedside manner. In the middle of my questions, he left the room and never came back. I had to ask the nurse to go get him. When he came back, he didn't even come in the room, he stood in doorway. Obviously something was more important then his patient.

Does not return phone calls. Cannot get a live person on the phone. I told the nurse the problems I had been having with this and she said she would relay the information. Was referred to ENT and he did not find anything wrong that he could help with. I have acid reflux really bad and can't seem to get help for it. Only interested in doing my colonoscopy so I assume that is your biggest money maker. Dr. gave me samples and told me to call and let them know how it worked. I called
