      My family & I understand that he is the "surgeon" & the PA/staff does the "legwork" on his behalf; he seems very much out of touch, disconnected, & almost indifferent about his patient's physical & emotional status . In our experience; he spends little time, doesn't seem to remember patient specifically, asks same questions (& gets the same responses) on each visit, & it seems he prolongs the process with repeated visits to him & requesting additional referrals & tests each time.

      I had a good experience with Dr. Baruch and the physician assistant. The PA was very thorough with me and he guided me with what to expect with the treatment. Dr. Baruch came in only for a few minutes to go over my x-rays and talk about the steps to take in managing my knee. Definitely was pleased with the PA and Dr. Baruch. Waited a while to be seen however.
      in Teaneck, NJ |
      Dr. Baruch was extremely helpful and knowledgeable. The office staff was very pleasant.
      Bergen County |
      He was very rude, treated my mother like garbage and was with her for less than 2 minutes. I'm complaining to my insurer not to keep him in network. Based on health results, she has had no improvement. Bedside manner aside, he is just not a good doctor or very smart.
      Seems to run a surgery factory! If you are considering treatment by this doctor, I would say what the young lady said in "Forest Gump", "Run Forest; run!!" My initial eval was performed by his P. A. He came in for about 2-3 minutes, introduced himself, directed her to write a scrip for phys. therapy, and referred me to the Pain Management Specialist. Then he was off to the next person. His lack of concern gave me no confidence in the quality of care that I could expect to receive there.

      What a terrible experience. The office was run down, smelled of cigarette smoke and the staff was unprofessional. After a 15 minute intake with the P.A. the Dr. came in to shake my hand and ask a few questions before leaving again. When he asked the questions the PA attempted to answer for me; he obviously wanted to have a patient on his own. I was sent for x-rays and the tech didn't even know what she was supposed to x-ray. At that point I did not feel comfortable and left.

      Why Does Experience Matter?

      Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.
