What People Say About Dr. Philip Barasch, MD

My husband is suffering from memory impairment and we have been trying to work with Dr Barash for 5 months to get testing done to determine the cause. Dr. Barash has only hindered the process by first recommending a clinical trial which was not appropriate for my husband. Months have gone by and he has not ordered the most basic neurological testing for a diagnosis. He failed to even do preliminary tests to rule out other factors such as Lyme disease or low B-12 levels.

Dr Barash left for vacation without calling in the Rx he prescribed, and no one else in office would cover for him. The oncall neurologist said "... go to the ER", while the office staff said my symptoms were not an emergency. I'd just been discharged from hospital. I like Barash, but cannot abide by an office where physicians will not cover each other. None of his staff felt it was their responsibility to follow-though with. Was told to find an alternative neurology practice,
