Office waiting time is minimal and Dr. Barlis takes the time to thoroughly check, ask questions, and try to get to an answer. In just a few visits she has already addressed and helped me with issues I have been dealing with for years. Highly recommended!

Dr. Barlis is a wonderful and caring doctor who is extremely thorough and detailed. She has a warm bedside manner and takes her time with every visit. The only downside I experienced with this office is with scheduling appointments. I havebeen offered very little flexibility and when I call at 7am and try to get in that day for an illness, I rarely hear back and I need to call multiple times.

Dr. Barlow is incredibly professional and thorough. She discusses everything with you and explains results in a very practical manner. I never have to wait long when I arrive. She is also very friendly and puts me right at ease during the appointment.
