Great experiences each and every time. I would recommend my provider but I have had a very negative experience with a different physician in the internal medicine department and the receptionists in the family practice department have been very rude oni several occasions.
100

08/21/2016
the only problem I ever have is when I really AM sick, and can't get in to my provider due to his extreme busy schedule. nearly always it's a trip to a urgent care with a doctor who is NOT familiar with my history. It is a shame our doctors are required to fill their schedules to the max so there is no time for emergencies, ours or their own!

Always feel Doctor takes enough time to diagnose my problem & if can't help me he refers me to specialist

[...] Providers and staff everywhere are not knowledgeable about how to communicate with and understand the feelings of a person with Alzheimer disease. Focus and training just aren't happening yet. The stigma remains, and is extremely damaging.

Dr. Barga and his staff always does a very great job of taking care of me.

I have been seeing Dr. Barga off and on since I was in high school. He took great care of my grandmother, and he takes great care of my mom. I admire his knowledge, willingness to research what he doesn't know, breadth of reading and research, kindness, bedside manner, and ability to remember my issues. He is the only physician who has shared the books he reads and how they may relate to one of my concerns. Great doc; hope he practices forever.
