I can say this. If you are having continual pain without relief, than do your self a favor and make an appointment to see Dr. Barolat. You have everything to gain and it has been a god sent for me. Dr. Barolat listens to you and then makes a plan that you and him work towards that goal. I have been seeing Dr. Barolat for over ten years and I can only say that without his help I would not be where I am today. So call and make an appointment you will be glad you did.

Those of us dealing with pain syndromes know it's like chasing a ghost. Dr. Barolat doesn't hesitate to take these time consuming mysteries head on. There's not always an answer but Dr. Barolat will try harder than anyone else! I've been a patient since 2014 with a stimulator but am seeing other providers for interventional mgmt. However, I wouldn't make any significant moves in my care without a consultation with Dr. B as I did recently. I'm not sure if Dr. B is a better person or a better doctor!! He means the world to me!

I have been to lots of doctors in my life, but I have never had a doctor take the time to listen to me and explain things to me like Dr. Barolat. He should teach bedside manner to other doctors. Best doctor ever!

Dr. Barolat & Justin saved my leg, I was going through my amputation team already till I met with Barolat Neuroscience, I was able to have a sciatic nerve stimulator which helped me with the daily pain and get to the point I could stand it. Amazing group of people.

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!

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%.
