Patient Comments (1)
Indianapolis IN |
I had surgery at IU by Dr Barbaro, a hospital room wasn't reserved for me so after my surgery I was left on a wet gurney crying in the hall for six hours until I told my family to bring the car around. No bed side manner. He didn't even see me after the surgery at all. I would find anyone other than Dr Barbaro if I could it over again.
