New Milford, CT |
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.

Dr. Bard was punctual and very friendly, performed the procedure in a professional way, answered all my questions to my satisfaction, and advised on the next steps. I would highly recommend Dr. Bard to anyone who needs ENT. Cheers ! resident of Ridgefield, CT

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.

My experience with Dr. Bard has always been top notch! I feel thoroughly taken care of, he is extremely nice, patient & caring. I wouldn't go anywhere else. The staff is warm and the facilities are wonderful.
Danbury, CT |
This doctor was, by far, the worst I have ever seen. He did not even examine me and declared he knew what my diagnosis was. Not surprisingly, he was wrong, and I suffered severe damage from the condition being left untreated under Dr. Bard's care. I would never recommend this doctor to anyone I cared about (or anyone, for that matter).
