in Harveys Lake Pa |
True, I had to wait beyond the time of my appointment but as the saying goes-never cut off your nose to spite your face. The staff was extremely polite and helpful. The pre exam by the staff was thorough and explanations were given for all tests. Dr. Is friendly, and extremely competent. He inspires confidence. His treatment is conservative when possible. No hesitation in seeing Dr. Barna

Jim Thorpe, PA |
After looking extensively for an ophthalmologist in the Hazleton area, I have found Dr. Barna to be an experienced professional, friendly and easy to talk to and understanding of patient's concerns. I am very satisfied with my recent visit to his office. All staff involved were courteous and friendly as well.
