This is not my first visit to Dr. Barkatullah...I return because I love how he is as a doctor! He's thorough, and takes his time with you. He explains everything really well. He answers any questions you have, and doesn't makeyou feel foolish asking them. In my case, he's been conservative in his approach, but willing to pursue other paths when I didn't respond to the treatment we tried first. And he's super easy to talk to and has a great bedside manner. LOVE this doctor!

I like Dr. Barkatullah a lot. He spends plenty of time with me, and makes sure all my questions are answered. He explains everything thoroughly. His office is a little over-aggressive with the reminder calls, which I find off-putting. They leavemessages threatening to cancel your appointment and charge you a cancellation fee if you fail to call back to confirm. Otherwise, they are friendly, helpful, and efficient, though, so it's not the staff I have a problem with, it's the policy, or the script. Overall, very happy with Dr Barkatullah and the office staff.

This was my first visit to Dr. Barkatullah and I went to him because of all of the positive reviews on the Internet. I agree with everything that has been said. He took time to listen to all of my concernsand explained what he wanted to do to further find out what's wrong and thoroughly explained what each test would do. He also gave me some ideas of things I could do to help my problem. I give him my highest recommendation regarding a first visit.

Very caring doctor. Takes time to listen and address any concerns you have. I felt very comfortable with him. Didn't feel rushed at all. He wasn't quick to schedule an operative procedure and wanted me to try some natural approaches tobegin with and I greatly appreciated that. I would highly recommend Dr. Barkatullah.

Love how he takes the time to really make sure you understand what's going on! He explains everything and makes sure he's answered your questions, as best he can, before you leave the office. His office staff is also really wonderful.I am fairly anti-pill, I always like to exhaust every holistic route possible before turning to scripts, and he is supportive of that---that in and of itself is amazing! He truly is a wonderful doctor!

I like the doctor very much, but his hospital affiliation is the problem! Even though I don't plan to be admitted, tests need to be done! The hospital had major problems in the scheduling department. When you have problems scheduling tests,you start to worry what other problems you may have!

He takes plenty of time talking with you andhearing your concerns or problems. He is just overall a great doctor to have and so done I would recommend to anyone I know needing GI

I thought he was very thorough and attentive. I had to wait a little bit, but they kept me informed that I was next and it shouldn't be much longer and after seeing how thorough he was I didn't mind thatI had to wait a little while because I know he's giving all his patients the attention and care they should have.
