I have seen Dr Bark numerous times and always felt he is a great doctor and very knowledgable. However, his bedside manner is terrible. Today, he was short and gave no details on his diagnosis. He literally gave the diagnosis and walked out of the room. When the nurse came in, she said you are free to go, and I had to ask her questions about my diagnosis. Instead of asking Dr. Bark to come back in and talk, she handed me a brochure. She also apologized for his lack of clarity.
