I had a very good experience with Dr. Barghash because she is comforting. She is very professional and knowledgeable but equally important to me is her bed side manner. During my office visits she made eye contact and greeted me in a very comforting way. Before my procedure she asked me how I was and when I told her that I was a little nervous, she acknowledged my feelings but reassured me. I feel very cared for with her and don't fear seeing her.

in South Plainfield, NJ |
She was the first gastro type doctor I have ever seen. I was having some difficulty managing a gastro issue I have been living with for many years so i knew it was time to go see a gastro doctor to address the issue. I did wait a while to be brought back to a room but once there I waited a shorter time for Dr. Barghash to come into room. I was very nervous as the reasons you go to see this type of doctor aren't usually the most comfortable to talk about, but she was kind & knowledgeable.

Bedminster, NJ |
I have been struggling with IBS-C for about 35 years. Dr. Barghash is the first doctor who truly listened and corrected the problem without mitigating the challenges a person faces with this chronic issue. She seemed to really want to help. Not only did she have a nice way with me, but she seemed extremely knowledgeable and intervened in ways that made sense and made a difference.
Flemington, NJ |
Dr. Barghash truly listens to you. Then... unlike the first gastroenterologist I saw, instead of throwing an Rx at you, she proves that she cares... and offers suggestions to alleviate your discomfort while you wait for testing (if needed). It's evident that she cares.
in Piscataway, NJ |
Dr Barghash, always address her patient by name. She makes you feel comfortable. She is always on time and professional. Love her!
Bridgewater, NJ |
Dr. Barghash was very thorough in her approach to recommending a colonoscopy (spent the time to make sure a colonoscopy was the right procedure for me) and in explaining the results. She took the time needed to listen to my concerns and to explain the pros and cons of her recommendation. After the procedure, she also made sure that I understood the results and the reasons for her recommended follow-up.
