Excessive wait time, did not want to see prior MRI scans, based findings (rather quickly) on office x rays and brief exam, sent me on my way with wrist splints,a referral for physical therapy, and a script for medications I didn't want. I got no real answers or plan for my degenerative condition.

Dr. Barrick did a great job. I have spinal stenosis and needed significant work. He set reasonable expectations on what would happen, and I got great results. He does sometimes runs late for his appointments; however, it is because he is spending so much time with his patients. I'd much rather wait for the doctor that will take time, then be rushed by one who is watching the clock. He is serious, detailed, technical and focused -- That's what I want in a surgeon.

This doctor had an extremely arrogant, hostile demeanor and in the space of one visit managed to humiliate the patient by asking her to undress in front of him with no nurse present, and terrorize her with disturbing comments. His remarks about her condition were in opposition of every specialist she had seen. He has a poor reputation in local area. He referenced amputations and blood loss when she approached him for a routine evaluation. Avoid him.

Dr. Barrick is the WORST orthopedic surgeon in the WORLD!! He operated on my husband's back about 2 1/2 years ago & we have had to have 2 additional surgeries to correct the MESS he did to him. As a matter of fact, my husband is in a hospital in NYC right this minute having the 3rd fusion surgery to his back to repair the DAMAGE this BUM did to him. If you love your family member, don't go near Barrack!! You will regret it, unfortunately. Endless pain was caused by this inadequate QUACK!

Does not care about patients, or what they have to say. Just trying to get most patients in for most money. Took months to get appt, wait 2 hours for Dr to come in, and appt lasts under 2 mins. He did not let me speak to say whats going on, just rushed through pointless physical tests and was done. Took xrays, I had to wait 2 months to go back for results and he didn't even mention them, just told me to continue what I'm doing, (even though still in pain). Worst doctor ive ever seen.
