I was very disappointed in this MD's cavalier attitude towards my condition. He performed the necessary tests THEN proceeded to tell me that it could be this or that. In the final analysis, he gave me no answer other than to tell me I would have to live with it. I went on to see two other specialists who sent me for tests at two area hospitals. My condition was determined; I was given the necessary prescriptions and exercises; my condition is improving!

I thought I had strep throat. I was shocked to find out I had a cancer in my throat. Dr Bard helped me through the process from diagnosis to , what is now, cure. He spent a lot of time explaining things and made it easier for me. I had a few setbacks, but if it wasnt for him, I would have been diagnosed too late. I trusted him with my life and he did not let me down. I read some of the bad reviews on this site and could not believe they were talking about this find doctor.

Dr. Bard and the entire New Milford office would rather make sure they leave their office at exactly 5pm than to bother addressing patient concerns. I've called their office multiple times with a question, and every time I am promised a call back which conveniently never arrives. Quick to take your co-pay, quick to prescribe medications and refuse to allow generic substitutions, but not so quick to actually pay attention to a patient or their concerns. Will probably never hear again, thanks Dr.

Extremely disappointed in his care. I had an episode of vertigo a week after a visit to see him for pressure in my ear, which he said was allergies. When I called to have him see me for the vertigo issue he said told to go to an MD.....aren't those what the letters after his name are? Again very disappointed in his lack of care.

I have been going to Dr. Bard for a few years now. I will not be switching from him anytime soon and I even moved 30 minutes away. He is an amazing doctor and always has diagnosed my conditions accordingly. He is very smart and can usually diagnose without a checkup, he will examine you either way. If I have any questions he answers them directly and will sit there and answer all of my 100 questions.

The staff was horrible. My son & I were standing at the counter. Without looking up or opening the glass partition, the receptionist pointed at the Sign In Sheet then pointed at the sign Sign In and Take a Seat. Our appointment was for 3:30. We waited for Dr. Bard until 4:20. He walks in, asks me my concern, looks in my son's ears and says He's fine. Take this sheet to check out. I felt he couldn't care less and had somewhere better to be.

Dr. Bard gives the impression he isn't listening, doesn't care, and would rather be sipping martinis with someone smarter and better than his lowly patients.

Dr. Bard has put in ear tubes in by daughter's 3 times, has done a tonsillectomy and adenoidectomy on both my daughter and my son. He is the best doctor there is. His bedside manner is excellent after getting to know him a little more and he is always great with the kids. Has a great sense of humor. He takes the extra time needed to explain things to you without rushing you. I am considering having surgery on my deviated septum and have no doubts about having him do the surgery.
