Dr. Barts is one of the best doctors I have ever encountered. She is not only helping with my Thyroid problem, but also looking after all other health concerns I have. She is truly a doctor who is knowledgeable, helpful and passionate about her job.

I am a patient of Dr. Barts who was diagnosed with hypothyroidism and was interested in the comment below regarding reverse T3. I looked up the original article cited by the commenter below and found that they failed to mention that this article was published in the mid 1970s!! I did some more digging and researching and it seems that the consensus among endocrinology experts today (almost 40 years later), is that reverse T3 is 'metabolically inactive'. However, there are some naturopathic doctors that disagree and believe reverse T3 is of some use. Dr. Barts is young and knowledgeable and I have found her to always be on top of current research and treatment.

Many endocrinologists believe that reverse T3 (3,3’,5-triodothyronine) is only an inactive metabolite with no physiologic effect. This is an erroneous belief as this and other studies demonstrate that reverse T3 (rT3) is a more potent inhibitor of T4 to T3 conversion than propylthiouracil (PTU) which is a medication used to decrease thyroid function in hyperthyroidism. In fact, rT3 is 100 times more potent than PTU at reducing T4 to T3 conversion. Clearly demonstrating that rT3 not just an inactive metabolite, but rather a potent inhibitor of tissue thyroid levels. The authors conclude, “Reverse t3 appeared to inhibit the conversion of t4 to T3 with a potency which is about 100 times more than PTU…” http://www.custommedicine.com.au/health-articles/reverse-t3-dominance/ SOURCE: A study of extrathyroidal conversion of thyroxine (T4) to 3,3’,5-triiodothyronine (T3) in vitro.

I have gone to see Dr. Barts multiple times and both times she was very informative and very friendly. She actually really cared what was going on. Most doctors just want to push you out the door, but she took her time and showed me things I never knew before. Would recommend her in a heart beat !!

I met Dr. Barts in Royal Columbian Hospital after receiving life saving treatment for my newly diagnosed condition. I am so grateful that she took me on as a patient. She is the best doctor I have ever been to! She is extremely knowledgeable and keeps up to date on the latest medical technology. She genuinely cares and will follow up through e-mails. She has impeccable bedside manner... 10/10 doctor!

Agnieszka sets the gold standard for specialized patient-centered medical care. She has a rare combination of knowledge and empathy that leaves you feeling utterly confident you are receiving the best care possible. That said, her extreme efficiency may be a little unsettling if you are not expecting it. Follow-ups are short so bring a list if you have questions, be on time, and don't expect to be charmed by her MOA - she is on the ball but wasn't hired based on her soft skills!

Very caring and thorough. What a doctor should be. I took my mother to see her and her explanations were very easy to follow and most important she listened to our concerns and more importantly she followed up and made sure everything went well.

I have had type one diabetes for 11 years now, and have never found a dr. that I really felt 'made a difference'. Dr. Barts is great in the sense that we don't just talk about my diabetes, she actually suggests what I can do to make things better. She is available via email as well, which is great to have. Truly an awesome doctor!!!
