Dr. Barsam is an excellent doctor. He always makes time to explain things thoroughly. I had a difficult eye situation and he diagnosed it and treated it properly. As a result, I still have my sight. The only complaint I have is about his staff. They are very abrupt and unfriendly. I can never get a prescription renewal without some sort of problem. It takes 2-3 phone calls to get the situation rectified. He needs friendlier staff whose English is their first language!

My husband and I love him

I have a rare condition that Dr. Barsam was able to identify quickly, saving me what could have been years of frustration in seeking diagnosis. He is frequently updating his knowledge, and considers the whole being, not just the eyes. He is a good listener, takes his time, and I have recommended him to friends who were very grateful that I did. He is one of my favorite doctors of all time.
