Specialties

Dr. John L Barstis has the following 3 specialties

  • Medical Oncology

    Think of an oncologist as your main physician for cancer care. After being diagnosed, you’ll meet regularly with an oncologist to explore and manage your treatment options, as well as monitor your condition throughout the process. Medical oncologists are extremely knowledgeable in various types of cancer treatment and can recommend the right method for the type and stage of cancer you’re facing.
    They may also refer you to additional specialists throughout your care, but they will always be your home base for questions and support. It’s also worth mentioning that medical oncologists deal mostly with solid tumors while hematologists specialize in cancers that involve blood disorders, such as leukemia.

  • Hematology & Oncology
  • Internal Medicine

    An internist is a physician who focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of conditions that affect the adult population—both acute and chronic.
    These doctors are often who adults see as their primary physicians because they treat a broad range of illnesses that do not require surgical or specialist interventions. They also work to help a patient maintain optimal health in order to prevent the onset of disease.
    In addition to treating the common cold and flu, internists also treat chronic diseases like diabetes and heart disease.

Breast cancer survivor

I been seeing Dr Barstis for 24 years. He and his staff are the best, when you are going through such a hard time they are so caring. He has treated me for breast cancer and it has been 23 years now.

If You Are Lucky Enough To Have Dr. Barstis In Your Insurance Network-there is NO NEED to go for a second opinion. I would send my loved ones to him in a heartbeat.

Not only did Dr. Barstis save my life, he and his staff of angels-his Nurses and his front and back office staff made this year of treatment as easy as possible. We have shared more laughs than tears, and chemo was a breeze. EVERY single appointment was easy, every single Nurse was a joy, Dr. Barstis has always given me time and answers and has never, ever rushed my appointments. Every single, solid time I have needed to call or speak with the front desk Receptionists, Assistants and Office Management, I spoke to somebody who "got it" and was ON TOP OF IT as if I were their very own relative. If only every Doctor's office was this professional. NOBODY has EVER disappointed me -nobody keeps you on hold, nobody drops a call, not one person has ever forgotten to get back to me-a TOTAL PLEASURE when you are going through something this scary and traumatic. I love every single person at Dr. Barstis's office-how many Dr.s offices can you say that about? Cancer is a scary and awful thing-Thank Goodness for Dr. Barstis and his precious Nurses and amazing staff. I am forever grateful. Can I give Dr. Barstis more than five stars????

THE best doctor you will ever have

Dr. Barstis is one of those very few doctors who actually really cares about his patients and does not just see them as an income stream. This coupled with his extreme medical knowledge makes him unique among his peers and makes him THE doctor you want if you are diagnosed with cancer. He will fight for you, take on the Insurance Companies to be sure you get the treatments you need to have. I travel from Missouri to see him for my followup appointments....I just don't trust anyone else! THANK YOU DR. BARSTIS!!
