Ratings for Dr. Anna Barbieri
I have been a patient of Dr. Barbieri for over 2 years. I got pregnant in 2013 and gave birth in June 2014. Dr. Barbieri was not only one of the best OBGYN medical doctors but also she calmed me down at the most difficult times. Whe i had gestational diabtes she supported me so much.She was very clear in terms of her procedures and spent quality time with me. Whenever there was a medical emergency she would make herself available to respond back to my questions. She goes beyond meeting patients' expectations. I wish there was more Dr. Barbieri's around. Dr. Barbieri thank you very much for being such a great doctor.
I was seeing Dr. Barbieri for years for routine stuff. Once I asked her what looked to be a skin tag on my vag was and she said "probably genital warts, don't be so promiscuous" (in relationship at the time for 5 years, and I now know that was totally inappropriate to say), so I asked her to biopsy it, and she said " I don't have time" after I waited 2 hours to see her (ended up being nothing). Long story short, she was always on maternity leave. I am a woman, so of coarse I understand but here's the problem. Her NP did swabs, and sono. I had a ruptured cyst in my ovary, no call. A yeast infection that self resolved, but again, no call. I had EXTREME abdominal cramping from it- months later. She said she would see me, and 2 hours of waiting, the staff said she left- was too busy, I had to go to the ER. Lastly, she was away again, and I had a visit with a covering MD. Months after the visit, I went to see her (cramping again, now diagnosed with endometriosis) and waited sooo long I was fed up and requested my records, which were promptly copied. As I look through them, I realize I had tested positive for a STD ( teenager) and there was a note from the covering he discussed it with me. Which was total nonsense!!! The number they had on file was wrong, so I was wondering how he could of called. There were other means of reaching me, but that wasn't done. She looked at me and basically said she didn't care and he kept saying we spoke, which I know was impossible. She's the worst person/doctor I have ever dealt with. It's taken me years to speak up about this, but people should know how she can be. I was a young girl, and that's no way to treat someone
Dr. Barbieri is one of the nicest, most compassionate doctors I know. She delivered my daughter in 2009 and will be delivering my second baby next month. She has moved her practice from Mt. Sinai to the Upper West Side and her partners all seem to be just as nice as she is. Whichever doctor is on call always calls you back within minutes which is so reassuring when you have an issue. I would definitely recommend her to anyone.
I had the most wonderful experience throughout my pregnancy with Dr. Barbieri as well as in delivery (C-section). She was extremely knowldgeable, skilled surgeon and great bedside manner. I couldn't be happier with choosing her as my ob for this second pregnancy.
Dr. Barber is an angel! She delivered my daughter in 2009. She was so compassionate and patient with me. I loved going to all of my appointments and actually even miss the frequent prenatal appointments. The staff was wonderful especially her M.A. They always made me feel welcomed and 'at home'. I will definitely have her deliver all of my future babies :)
