    I had to have a emergency surgery here in my home town for my appendix upon doing some test they found that I had some tumors on my liver my Dr sent me to see Dr Barakat on my first visit I was so pleased with the way he talk to me and explained what needed to be done and test that I need to do to fix my problem I went back on 12-20-2016 for my results he took the time to explain all that needed to be done to heal my liver he was not in a rush he took his time with me and my family Excellent Dr.

    In 2011 I was diagnosed with Pancreatic Cancer. Dr. Barakat performed a very intricate and long surgical procedure called the Whipple. It is the only known surgical procedure in the treatment of this type of cancer. 5 years later I have had zero complications and remain cancer free. Dr. Barakat explained in detail what he was going to do and why he was going to do it. He was a very reassuring presence in an otherwise trying time in our lives. Would recommend him to anyone. Great Surgeon!
