What People Say About Dr. Robert Barish, MD
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful

I am 83 years old and have had many medical problems beginning with diverticulitis which was initially detected in Dec. 1971. After getting the inflammation under control they operated and removed 14 inches of my traverse and descending colon. Recently I moved to Ocala from the Space Coast and started having pain in my lower abdominal region. My primary care doctor referred me to Dr Barish. I am quite good at evaluating people and I must say that the two people that wrote the negative comments about this man must have rocks in their head or someone put them up to it. I must say that a less confident man would have removed those comments from his web site. Dr Barish is quite professional and well qualified in his chosen field.

This doctor is not friendly and does not like to answer questions. He told me that the intense stress that I have been under had nothing to do with my gastric reflux and that nothing but medicine would help. Not stress management or losing weight. Both of these things are totally wrong but he doesn't care. If you are looking for a pill pushing jerk for a doctor this is your man! If you are looking for a compassionate doctor that will listen and try to help you in anyway you should run from this guy. By the way never took his pills and my reflux has totally resolved with diet and digestive enzymes.
