I found him to be unprepared for my visit without reviewing my referral as a new patient. It was difficult to explain my concerns since he interrupted and shot down everything I said. There was no active listening to my concerns, only interruptions. I should have paid attention to the poor reviews here. It was a waste of time to drive 2 hours one way for this visit.

Consulted with Dr. Bartsch and a family members physician to discuss a very serious condition. Dr. Bartsch's assessment of the situation was right on the mark, and his help in conferring with the other physician was very helpful. He gave us his straight opinion without a bunch of fluff. It was the kind of candid, straight forward information that we needed.

His bedside manner leaves a LOT to be desired.. I would NEVER EVER Recommend this individual to ANYONE. He gave my Mother results of an incurable CANCER over the phone then ended the call with "Sorry for the bad news." Ugh!
