What People Say About Dr. Daniel Barba, MD

I had spine surgery in April 2019 by Dr Barba. Office visits are great! Dr Barba is a busy Dr, but most of my visits were early or on time with the appointment time. His staff are very friendly, professional and thorough. Dr Barba is pleasant and straightforward. He is neither arrogant nor rushed. The surgery was thoroughly explained and a tight schedule of pre-op visits to other professionals was managed by his staff. His staff thoroughly understand what is going on, what needs to get done and how to do it. Return calls and follow-ups were never missed. I felt like the Dr, his staff and myself were on a team to reach a successful conclusion and we made it. I recommend Dr Barba and his team with 100% confidence in their ability, knowledge and results.

I was not happy when I left the office. After waiting for at least 20 minutes once I was brought into the room, during which time I was able to see my MRI up on the screen, the assistant came in, hit a button on the computer, the image was gone. Dr finally came in, could not get the image back up so he couldn't explain what I had been looking at. He wrote a prescription and said I could come back another time and pay for another consultation. Cost: $150. For nothing.

I had pain in my left hip and leg. It was so bad I couldn't sit for longer than 30 minutes, sometimes less. No long trips or flights for me. Dr. Barba operated on my lower back and when I woke, all pain was gone. Yesterday I did 4 sets of 5 225 lb dead lifts. The point here is that my life has changed for the better and I am moving forward. Other than my wife, the this was the best decision ever.

I am getting ready for a 2nd, unrelated, surgery by Dr. Barba. Previously he performed an Anterior Cervical Disc Fusion (ACDF) C5-6 because I was having extreme pain going down my arm. Xrays and an MRI showed a lot of disc degeneration and bone spurs. He never pressed the surgery route but said it might help. I decided on going ahead with the surgery. I am very happy with the outcome: no more arm pain. Now I'm getting ready to get rid of my low back pain. Wish me luck!

Dr. Barba done my surgery 2 years ago. He has the best bedside manner. He explained everything so you could decide what treatment you want. He does not pressure. I have referred many people to him over the last couple of year's as I have 100% faith in him and his work. I have been pain free in my lower back since the surgery. His whole staff is professional.

I visited Dr. Barba with a very serious spinal fracture. I was in great pain and he was quick to get me in and to respond with pain management while establishing a treatment plan. My desire was to return to full recovery and he outlined alternatives and risks and gave me adequate information to make an informed decision. As soon as feasible, he scheduled surgery. The result was amazing and I had pain relief immediately on waking from the operation and was able to stop the pain medication.
