Verified Patient Reviews
Very thoughtful physician who takes his time and is very thorough— rare for PCPs who are under more and more pressure to see 6 patients or more an hour. The office staff are intelligent and efficient The location is convenient for Center City patients.
Dr Barclay was very professional. The office was not the usual practice mill that many physicians are forced to operate in these days. I never felt rushed & he addressed all my issues. I'll go back for sure!
As someone who is terrified of doctors, I can't recommend Dr. Barclay highly enough. He's so friendly and reassuring and seems to want to do things properly.
I came to Dr. Barclay, complaining of severe headaches. Dr. Barclay gave me a thorough exam, and he made sure not to overlook any details that would cause my health issue or diagnoses. He was very attentive and knowledgeable about the issue at hand as well as the typical treatment for this problem. He also made it clear that I had the freedom to contact him after the fact through his office or cell phone should his prescribed solution not help. I was very pleased with Dr. Barclay's professionalism and intellect with this matter.
Absoulte waste of time.
Very kind and helpful, office was small and personal feeling and he took time to connect with me personally. I wasn't just a chart to him.
Dr. Barclay introduced himself, made me feel welcome and actually sat and talked to me about my concerns and the reason for my visit. I didn't feel rushed or ignored, which made me very happy (and had not been my experience with a few other doctors in the area). I felt my diagnosis and treatment were appropriate and not too much or too little. Very happy with my experience.
Very nice and professional man. He made me feel at ease and directed me to an ENT in the same building! The receptionist was professional and polite. Overall it was a great visit!

I was able to see the doctor right away and he spent 30 mins with me. I'm very impressed with my experience and am satisfied with making him my new PCP. It's convenient that he can do blood work right in the office. He also administered my flu shot himself.
Dr. Barclay is very professional and he really takes his time instead of rushing along for the next appointment.
One of the best medical practitioners I've seen in Philadelphia. Very east to talk to and doesn't rush the appointment. Sympathetic, thoroughly explains his assessment, and is more than willing to help.
when I went to him after being in a car accident, he discredited my suspicion of having a concussion, despite the fact that I had all the symptoms according to everything else I read. Quick to prescribe over the counter drugs instead of a thorough diagnosis.
He had no clue what to give me or how to help me... he has no experience with lupus....
Dr. Barclay was great! Chill, efficient, and took time to explain medical terms. The assistant Layla was also very kind! A great doctor's visit.

First time visit. However, he was very attentive to what I explain how I was feeling. He asked questions of my family history of types of illness.

Dr Barclay was very professional and efficient. He let my fiance come into the exam room, which I really appreciated. He listened well, and made me feel comfortable. Crucially, he didn't just give me a prescription and send me out the door. He was honest and not at all condescending. I would recommend him.
Very unpleasant experience. Staff was not friendly and felt very judged by them when I was there.
Very thorough and thoughtful.
