Patient Comments (3)
Dr. Barold is an truly outstanding physician. She is deeply intelligent and has wonderful judgment. I had very serious onset of afib and received the very best of care.
in washington, dc |
Dr. Barold is an extremely competent doctor who is thoroughly on top of her field. She explains her diagnoses clearly and simply and makes sure her patients fully understand what they need to. Top notch.
in Washington, DC |
Dr. Barold lacks empathy and "good bedside manners.". Has no interest in collaborating with other doctors to figure out a patient's symptoms. When I was in the hospital and terribly upset, she stepped out of the room instead of stepping forward to reassure me. There have to be many other cardiologists who know how to talk to patients and show they care.
