What People Say About Dr. Leslie Allen Barkis, DO
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful

Long term patient of Dr Barkis, I appreciate his attentiveness and care. I had an annual visit and brought up a few issues which he addressed. He is very caring and knowledgeable. I do feel that at times he is running behind based on the fact that he will take time with each patient, but I feel that he is also overbooked by the clinic. The Doctor gets 5 stars.. the clinic.. a little less

I called in Feb. with bronchitis. Was told he couldn't see me for 2 weeks. Does anyone wait 2 wks with a respiratory infection? I had to go to one of the urgent care centers here, which I do not like, but had to see someone. This is just not right.

Called in Nov for severe foot pain; soonest availability was January. When appointment finally arrived, was not seen on time and (to add insult to injury) was not taken seriously. Barkis took a glance at my foot and told me to wear better shoes and lose weight. That's it! Less than 15 minutes of his time and no exam of any kind. I later recieved a bill for over $300 for this "service". After switching to orthopedic shoes and losing 20 lbs, foot still hurts. Eggregious waste of time and money!

I saw Dr. Barkis for the first time in September for inhaler refills and growing concerns over massive swelling in left leg. I had a growing bulge above my ankle. Even though swelling would go down some, it never goes away completely. This occurred after an injury. The appointment was rushed and I was told this was NORMAL. I'm now seeing a different Dr. for veinous insufficiency. He diagnosed right away and referred to specialist. Seems catching it early improves outcomes. Dr. Barkis failed me

He doesn't listen and doesn't care. Good at writing referrals that you don't need. His nurse is not very nice.

Dr. Barkis is attentive, friendly and very professional and that would also describe his nurse Tana. They both do a good job of making me feel comfortable and informed whenever I have the need to see them.

I've been taking my 95 year old mother, who has dementia, to Dr. Barkis for the last 3 years and I've found him to be an excellent, caring person who listens to everything I tell him or ask him and he gives me great feedback. He is very patient with Mom and listens when she is talking about unrelated things to her health. Tonya, his nurse, has never been anything but nice and caring, also. I would recommend them to anyone looking for a good doctor.

Horrible experience. This doctor doesn't listen then changes the plan of care without consulting the patient, ordering unnecessary tests and consults. His nurse is rude. Doesn't fill prescriptions timely.

Dr. Barkis is very unprofession, does not listen when you speak. I felt very rushed in my appointment with him. He short answered all my questions and I left feeling like I wasted my time and money because I didn't feel valued as a patient and my.questions did not get answered throughly. His nurse Tonya is very rude. She never returned my call which was urgent. I had to end up calling her again and it was almost a week later. Never going to them again

I recommend Dr. Barkis to everyone I know. He takes the time to listen to me. He looks me dead in the eye when I speak. Every ailment I've had, he has been able to diagnose before the lab work.
