What People Say About Dr. Giancarlo Barolat, MD

I had an appointment with Dr. Barolat to discuss trying another stimulator trial. I let him know that I needed extensive surgery involving fusion and scoliosis correction. He offered to review my imaging and reports. Dr. Barolat took extra time to explain the findings and offered his help. He was concerned and caring. Dr Barolat went above an ordinary appointment and helped me with difficult decisions. Not only is he an excellent doctor, but a compassionate doctor!

You are shown the utmost respect and they have your best intentions of helping you with your condition. If it was not for Dr. B and his staff I do not know where i would be today. My life has been truly changed for the best. So I can only say if u want a change in your medical condition go to the best of the best.

Dr. Barolat and staff are simply the best no matter who put you put him up against. Dr. Barolat has worked so hard to get my surgery approved over the a past 18 months. Dr. Barolat does outstanding work. This is my 2nd spine implant for pain. You will not go away feeling like a number at his office. He cares and expresses the want and need to help each of his patient. Justin Call his assistant is just the same. I could not ask for anything else.

Caring, concerned, diligent. Goes above and beyond. Truthful and direct. Incredible staff. Phones answered by a human, not a machine. Barely a wait time. Spends every minute I need. Have recommended him at least three times. Wish he were my PCP. Really need more like him in today’s medical climate. Can’t say enough good about him and his staff.

I decided to have Dr. Barolat put in a spinal Stimulator, back in 2010. He listened. That's more than I can say for many other Doctors I have talked to. He also made me feel comfortable and discussed options. He's also very Good. I would recommend 100%.

Dr Barolat is one of the best doctors we have ever been too. He treats us like family and always has gone above and beyond to make my daughter and our family feel like we are getting the best treatment. He is genuine and caring. He is a very special doctor to us. Can't say enough about this man and his skills as a doctor. We have talked to others in the field and they look up and consider Dr Barolat as their mentor and expert! His office staff is awesome just like him! A plus office.

Dr. Barolat is the BEST surgeon ever. I have had several surgeries, and my experience with Dr. Barolat and his WHOLE office and staff has been nothing short of wonderful. I had a Spinal Cord Stimulator implanted for a chronic thoracic pain condition, and the results are amazing. I no longer take any opiate type of medication, and I have cut my normal meds down by more than half in just a year. Dr. Barolat is TOP NOTCH, and the warmest surgeon you will ever meet!

Dr. B is an incredible surgeon and also an incredibly kind and caring man. It is rare that a talented surgeon has such an incredible bedside manner. He is very aware of the fact that everyone in his office is involved in patient care. Every single person in this office is kind, smart and knowledgeable. They make you feel like family which means a lot.. Justin Call is the smartest and kindest PA I have ever met. This office focuses on helping every patient improve their quality of life.

Dr. Barolat is by far the MOST genuine caring physician I have ever had to see, (I have seen ALLOT) His staff is ALSO EXTREMELY caring and knowledgeable. Not everyone likes going to the Dr., I actually look VERY forward to going to their office. I HAVE recommended them to everyone I talk to who needs their particular services. I would rate them a 1000 on a scale of 1-10!.
