I felt very comfortable, and the wait time was minimal. Dr. Bartsch had a good approach of trying to fix this with PT vs. going to a steroid shot right away. I appreciate that and felt no pressure coming out of the appointment.

Doctor Bartsch is courteous and very thorough. He really listens to what is going on and discusses multiple options. Always beginning and emphasizing the least intrusive as well as providing information on where we could get. He asks pointedprobing questions to help define the treatment plan that works for my lifestyle and supports recovery. Personally wasn't thrilled that I had to modify exercise to low impact while I heal but he patiently explained the benefits and assured me I could ease back into routines, once I found my thresh hold. His is thoughtful, kind and understanding. I felt he encouraged me to have input on the treatment plan. I have complete faith and trust in Dr. Bartsch, I would never let just anyone doctor my back. After being treated by Dr. Barsch, I plan on never letting anyone else doctor my back. He has already made my back feel tremendously better.

Dr. Bartsch was significantly more helpful than my PCP in explaining what the MRI shows is going on with my back. He took the time to explain what he sees and what he recommends we do to alleviate the pain. Heexplained it in enough detail and with compassion without talking down to me. The wait time in the waiting room was about 20 minutes, but once called back, it was quick to see Dr. Bartsch. Beacon’s efficient scheduling and business processes are impressive. It was a huge relief to be able to see Dr. Bartsch within two weeks of calling to make an appointment. Other practices (Mayfield, etc.) were much harder to schedule with. Dr. Bartsch is definitely a good match for me, and I am thankful to have found an expert with good bedside manner to work with.

Dr. Bartsch administered a epidural steroid as treatment referred from a network doctor. I will say that I am very impressed with Dr. Bartsch. He spends time to discuss the issue, goes over all the information and recommends next steps andtreatment. He went through my MRI with me, explained everything, and gave me my options. He is very caring for the individual, and really wants to provide the best method of treatment depending upon the patients input / requirements. I would recommend Dr. Bartsch for sure.

I am an older runner with neck issues from a very old injury , my Chiro recommended Dr.Bartsch. Glad she did too. He did a great 1st visit, we decided on a treatment plan and a rehab schedule w Beacon andfollow-up. He was clear explaining my issues, I was comfortable asking questions , he didn't waste any time, but he didn't have one foot out the door the whole time either like so many do. . Highly recommend him.
