Dr. Barile has been treating me for CRVO for over a year now and I find him to be an extremely efficient medical practioner. He’s gentle and always answers questions that I have. I am in his office at least once every 2 months and never dread the visit.

Dr. Barile was very warm and thorough. I would highly recommend him. The staff and office were excellent and they even took me earlier than my appointment. The office is extremely well run.
