I had a L-5 S-1 slip- Spondylothesis. I had tried other outpatient surgeries to help with my condition. Nothing was elevating the pain and my quality of life was deteriorating. I consulted with Dr. Barkoh. He was so patient, understanding and knowledgeable. I decided it was time for surgery. This was my last resort and honestly, I was scared to go under the knife. I had 360 spinal fusion. Which means, anterior and posterior fusion. From the moment I woke up from surgery I could feel relief immediately. This surgery changed my life! No more pain!! Thank you Dr. Barkoh!

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.

Dr. Barkoh was wonderful. I never had surgery before and my first experience was spinal surgery and needless to say I was a little nervous/concerned. Dr. Barkoh calmly explained everything to me and didn't rush me into making my decision. After the surgery, I feel so much better and I would recommend him to anyone.

I saw Dr. Barkoh for lower back problems I was having due to pinched nerves. He was very professional and caring when reviewing my records and determining the best course of action. He was very helpful and understanding when answering my questions and concerns.

I want to thank Doctor Barkoh for for the excellent job he did on my neck fusion. After suffering from neck and back pain for 4 decades, and trying every available option, I finally met with Doctor Barkoh. Now 2 months after surgery, I feel great and getting better daily. I'm back to my hobbies again, which I gave up on for a year from the depression/pain. I can also spend quality time with my new grand daughter. Thanks for giving me my life back.

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.
