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.

I can't say enough good things about Dr. Barich. Dr. Barich genuinely cares for my well being. He's patient, a great listener, extremely knowledgeable in his field of expertise and often speaks in a way that is relatable to layman which amplifies the level of understanding and care. Best of all he's simply a really nice person. Down to earth, caring, and very smart - all the qualities I look for in a Doctor.

Does not listen to the patient. Will often interrupt the patient as patient is explaining what is wrong. Before getting all of the details he will often diagnose you. He is arrogant, rude and has a terrible bed side manner. Any tests I've had done, I've had to demand.

The doctor said I was in good health. Whatever I did before to relieve the stress induced problems, I should do again. He recommend that I get a new BP meter since mine was so far out of calibration, it was actually causing me excessive stress due to the abnormally high readings.

I do not understand his behavior during my last visit?? He seemed to become angry about a statement I made that should not have elicited his response!! After 3 days of treating the pain I was having, and there was no relief, I sent an E Mail via my Providence Chart site, that he never responded to?? Prior to this last mail, he had always responded within a day or two.

Nearly two years ago I had been suffering from what I felt was a lack of coordination [...]. Two previous Providence physicians were unable to provide a successful diagnosis for me. In an initial consultation, Dr. Barich took the the full exam time to thoroughly attempt a diagnosis. In the end, he referred me to a Neurologist. The Neurologist diagnosed me with Parkinson's Disease and prescribed medication which, in short order, alleviated most of the symptoms which had been plaguing me. I am forever grateful that Dr. Barich cared enough to take the time to ask me lots of questions, and ultimately refer me to a Neurologist.
