Ratings for Dr. Adam J. Bard
Everyone needs a family physician like Dr Bard. Very welcoming office and staff. They know you by first name. Dr Bard is patient and really takes the time to listen. He treats you as if you're a partner when it comes to planning treatment. He's available for same day visits. So far, I've had nothing but excellent experiences with him and his office, and without a don't, I'd recommend him to everyone who needs a great doctor!
Unfortunately my husband and I have had a terrible and very unsatisfactory experience with Doctor Bard. As a physician we never felt he was listening to us. I feel he believes that all problems are only solved through prescription drugs. When the mention of anything 'alternative' comes up he just types away at his computer, not listening and prescribes another drug. reviews have mentioned his bed-side manner as being warm and fuzzy. Well maybe those patients have been interacting with 'robots' too much? Our experience with his bed-side manner has been far from what a doctor should be. He lacks compassion and has no nurturing characteristics. A little levity and a sense of humor would go along way with patients in making them feel comfortable and relaxed. He is robotic and lacks all the ingredients that make a good doctor. I feel he would be better served in a research facility, out of direct contact with patients. As for the staff I feel they are a reflection of his personality...very business-like. Internal Medicine isn't a business model. It is the essence of and foundation of what people believe a doctor should be, and that is a person of compassion first!
I was referred to Dr. Bard from several co-workers who told me he had an excellent reputation in the community. They have been seeing him for quite some time. After seeing myself for almost a year now, I can say he has a wonderful way about him. He is warm, friendly, and quickly puts you at ease, no matter what your concerns are. I'm always made to feel like my best interests are being looked after. He takes the time to carefully explain things, making sure I understand everything before I leave the office, and always makes sure to follow-up, no matter how little the issue. I truly feel I have a health advocate in Dr. Bard. Since coming to his office, I have referred several other friends, and they too have come to like him. He is thorough, extremely knowledgable, and has a wonderful office. I highly recommend him to all!!!
Was referred to this doctor by a friend. Had not had a complete physical exam in many years. He was very thorough and respected my modesty (although at the expense of doing a clinical breast exam). I would highly recommend him- he does give you uninterrupted quality time and answers all your questions. Also does not harp on you for needing to exercise more or lose weight.
