Wonderful doctor

Have been seeing Dr. Barasch for many years, and he has always been professional, extremely capable, as well as charming. He is personable with a humorous manner, but completely serious when warranted, and an excellent diagnostician. I recommend him highly.

Dear Kenneth,1. Dont have your first question to patient "are you from Iran?"2. dont have pateients disgracefully waiting for 1.5 hour, and than accept 18 years old patient who just stepped in before.. 3. dont be over polite and tell confusing-buffling stories from glories past, focus on your present patient and his problem
