Ratings for Dr. Rakhi S. Barkowski
I have been going to Dr Barkowski for about 5 years now. Every single time I go I am made to wait at least 45 min. to an hour, Even when I ask for the first appointment after lunch and there are no appointments ahead of me. Dr Barkowski seems pretty knowledgeable, but always yawns when I am talking to her (every visit). Having been in the medical profession for years myself I understand how a professional office needs to function as a whole. I give this office a one, ten being the highest.
This is a private, Newport Beach office run as an HMO of lowest rating - The appointment was scheduled after SIX weeks. The very ill patient waited over ONE hour in the waiting room for a first visit that lasted approximately FIVE minutes. The staff is EXTREMELY rude.
I love Dr. Barkowski! She is a smart thorough Doctor and has great bedside manner. You can tell she really loves what she does! I have not had any issues with the office staff, the Medical Assistants were all very nice, front desk and checkout people very helpful.
Although Dr Barkowski is pleasant and courteous, her staff and office is terribly inflexible, rude, and unprofessional. If you want a good doctor, pick her however, if you have to do ANYTHING with her office, be prepared to go away unfulfilled, upset and frustrated. The office staff is the worst I have ever come in contact with. This is my first post like this - ever.
