My hero

Dr. Barth is a smart, caring, thorough doctor who guided me through my pregnancy after a previous miscarriage and stillbirth. I have a perfect 6 month old son now and I really believe it’s in part to to Dr. Barth’s care. He was always one step ahead and had an incredible understanding of my anxiety, walking me through nearly each week of my pregnancy until the end. He truly is a special human and I’d trust him with my life.

Exceptional Clinician

Dr. Barth is an exceptional doctor. He is an exceptional clinician and has a caring bedside manner. He was my doctor for two deliveries and I always felt as though I could ask any questions or contact he or Anne with any concerns I had. I honestly cannot say enough good things about Dr. Barth and Anne, both as people and medical professionals.

Incredible Professionalism

My wife (pediatrician) and I (psychiatrist) found out she had to deliver by c-section unexpectedly. Dr Barth broke the news in a remakably humane fashion, and was wonderful throughout the procedure, which I could hear him carefully supervising. Cannot recommend him enough.

Dr. Barth is fantastic!

I had a high risk pregnancy with many complications and Dr. Barth took excellent care of me. I have him to thank for helping me to deliver healthy twin boys despite numerous medical issues and lengthy hospital stays. He has excellent bedside manner and I would definitely recommend him to anyone with a complicated pregnancy!
