Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Barkoh "Dr. Barkoh believes most spine problems can be successfully treated with conservative, nonsurgical methods. But, when surgical intervention is needed, he utilizes the most advanced technology to perform minimally invasive procedures that allow patients to have a faster recovery with less post-operative pain.

"My passion is providing exceptional medical care. I carefully listen to my patients to understand their symptoms, how their symptoms impact their lives, and what their treatment goals are. The majority of patients can be treated with conservative, nonsurgical methods. Surgery is always the last option; but when necessary, I utilize minimally invasive techniques so patients have a faster recovery with less post-operative pain.""

Don't bother. He hasn't helped either my son or my Dad. We are searching for a new spinal specialist. It's not him specifically. it's his office staff. They are lazy and can't even manage to send in a prescription. I have had better care from emergency rooms and urgent care.

I want to thank Doctor Barkoh for for the excellent job he did on my neck fusion.

Dr. Barkoh is someone I would recommend all of my friends and family to go to. He took the time to explain everything to me and my husband about my surgery. Was very pleased with him as a doctor and as a person.
