The clinic is great. Dr. Barich's bedside manner is not exactly my style. I would expect him to be a bit more sensitive to women's health issues.

I really like Dr. Barich, I have anxiety with my visits which elevates my blood pressure. He is mindful of this but does not spend a great deal of time or seem overly concerned with it which helps me to relax and feel better.

The doctor did not listen to my very simple needs. I had to come back to the clinic 3-4 times due to his errors. I had my blood taken twice when it needed to be once. He had no idea about the condition I told him I had about my blood. Very disappointing experience and I will be switching my primary care doctor as well as medical home clinic.

I was greatly relieved to find a care provider in Dr. Barrich that would listen and believe me. He was very straightforward with his information and very clear. He does not overreact to issues, but shows good common sense. I feel confident that I will be well taken care of and will be able to make good medical decisions based on his care.

This was my initial visit with Dr. Barich. I liked the way he handled the appointment and feel comfortable that he will be my go forward physician. The "bad" was that I had to wait longer than would be considered acceptable (40 minutes-???) but the staff and doctor were very apologetic---it was an extenuating circumstance.
