Ratings for Dr. Wayne S. Barksdale
I absolutely love Dr Barksdale and his staff. Everyone is so friendly. Dr Barksdale isn't one of those Drs that just walks in and talks to you for just a min then walks out. He asks a lot of questions, gets your detailed history and sticks around in case you have any questions for him.
This was several years ago. I went to him for a long list of symptoms that had been going on for years. I was sure I had a glandular problem because many other things had been ruled out by other doctors. Dr. Barksdale told me my labs were "fine." (although I was refused the actual test results...just a brief written summary) When I asked for other test options, he basically called me a hypochondriac and told me to (quote) "stop reading women's magazines." I never went back, but I DID find an excellent endocrinologist (with no referral from Dr. Barksdale, of course) who diagnosed me with a pituitary disorder, PCOS and insulin resistance.However, my husband likes the doctor just fine for his own health needs. They seem to have a good man-to-man rapport.
Dr. Barksdale is the absolute best in his field. He is truly concerned about his patients well being and speaks to you like a person rather than just a patient taking up space in his appt book. I've been seeing him since my son was 6 months old and he's now 13. I've reccomended him to several friends and family members. He could teach these new physicians a thing or two about bed side manner and how to treat the ones who entrust their health to them.
