Patient Comments (4)
Northridge, CA |
Dr. Barakat is very honest and straightforward regarding a diagnosis. She explained my health issues and treatment options to me in a clear and respectful way.
Mediocre at best. Please Avoid!! She treated me like I'm not a person. I came in knowing that I have a thyroid problem and I tried to ask some questions but answered them in an insulting manner. She seemed to be uninterested with me. She seems to not care for her patients at all. Just check all the other reviews! Also the staff especially Dona is extremely unprofessional. All communications is done through voicemail and they take forever to respond!
Panorama City, CA |
Infuriating waste of my time. The doctor was rude and did not address my symptoms. I walked out frustrated.
Northridge, CA |
Worse doctor every. Never met such an uncaring human being. You try and ask a question and she snaps at you. Yet you have to hear 20 minutes on her children. Rude, disrespectful! Saw her in the hospital. Will not see her again. Finding a more compassionate doctor.
