Your trust is our top concern.

We strive to keep the reviews trustworthy, honest & fair.

We monitor all reviews to ensure they comply with our guidelines and don’t include personal information, profanity, libel, defamation, harassment, obscenity or fraud.

All reviews are confirmed and audited before publication, and community members have the ability to flag inappropriate content for further review by our team.

Doctors can not pay for good reviews, nor can they pay to have negative reviews removed.

Any reviews that are deemed fraudulent or violate our guidelines will be removed immediately.

Dr. Barczak is an amazing doctor! I was referred to him from my G.I. doctor in an emergency situation and I actually must say that Dr. Barczak is just a blessing, a TRUE BLESSING!!! I could not have been referred to a better doctor and surgeon. Dr. Barczak is the kindest, sweetest, and gentle doctor that really, TRULY cares about the patient. He has an amazing personality and bedside manner which is most important if you ask me! I most definitely could not recommend a better doctor and surgeon to anyone!!! He also has an amazing staff that will make your visit to their office seem as if you almost weren’t even at a doctor visit but we’re among an office full of people that just care so much about your every need and more! I highly recommend Dr. Rafal Barczak to all!!! One last thing, if there were a 10 star rating, I would give Dr. Barczak a 10+. He truly is truly just a wonderful person.

I'm a terrible patient , with a great Dr/ Surgeon . I want to give him all the kudos and respect I can. He is professional on all levels and worked well with me even when I wasn't working with him. Anyone reading this should know he is a very good and competent surgeon and should be listened to and taken seriously. I am glad I finally listened and had the resection he recommended..... it gave me my life back
