Dr. Mirna K Barakat has the following 2 specialties

  • Rheumatology

    A rheumatologist is a physician who has received extensive training in diagnosing and treating rheumatic conditions. Rheumatic conditions involve the joints, soft tissues, autoimmune system, vascular system, and connective tissues.
    Some of the conditions that rheumatologists treat are rheumatoid arthritis, ankylosing spondylitis, gout, sarcoidosis, vasculitis, and lupus. These are all conditions that involve a lot of pain and make mobility difficult. Rheumatologists use medications, such as analgesics, NSAIDs, steroids, DMARDs, infliximab, and adalimumab, as well as occupational therapy, in order to decrease pain and improve a patient's quality of life.

  • 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.

I think I started seeing Dr. Barakat in 2005 and have been pleased with all my treatment and her recommendations over the years. She listens, is detailed and looks for ways to handle my problems as they arise. My Lupus is in remission because of her care.

Two Stars

After my first appt I felt hopeful. Her questions were thorough as well as her exam. The next appt(s) I wondered if I had walked through the the door of a completely different dr. She was short, rude, had no opinion on how to treat my illness and so did not treat it! Believe me I could negatively go on and on but I won't. You get the gist I'm sure. Don't waste your time w her. I've been ill for many years, saw many doctors for treatment or because my husband had to move to a different city. My input is this; don't waste your time.

The dr. Is a pleasant woman. Her staff is pleasant on the phone but follows though with little. My disability papers were lost my her and/or her staff TWICE and then she wanted to charge me for signing them. I had already filled them out for her. I don't have a lot of confidence. Maybe I was spoiled by my rheumatologist up north.

Worst Experiences

I thought I would try this doctor after being told she is one of the best. I could not disagree more. Putting aside the ridiculous wait time of over an hour and the poor bedside manner, I have had nothing but a bad experience with the doctor and her team. I have worked at a doctors office for many years and have a mother who is a RN for over 25 years. I understand the many issues that come with a doctors office and usually stick up for the doctors and nurses. This office has no excuse to take over 2 months to give me my test results, that were in fact abnormal. I followed up after a week of visiting the lab. I have followed up every week for over 2 months...had the lab fax my lab work several times. I have watched the lab fax over the lab work and be given the confirmation page. There was no excuse. Finally, today I receive the phone call from Dr. Barakat, who read my lab work over the phone to me. She let me know of the findings, then before I could utter a sound. Her words, "Have a good day", and hung up! No explanation of what I do with my abnormal time for me to ask a question. Do I really feel like calling back...after I call every week? Totally hurt, upset and honestly angry. There is no care at all from this doctor and her team. No care for my health and no care for my emotions. Worst doctor I have ever encountered or worked with. I could handle a long wait and a bad bedside manner if she was a good doctor.
