We too are extremely saddened that Dr. "Barry" as our kids call him, has had to step away from his practice on the advice of his own physicians. Trying to find a replacement for him is beyond difficult. Dr. Barry, is a great man of intelligence and has a love for what he does! He adores our children and makes them (including us as parents) feel the most comfortable in every situation. We feel that we are an extention of his family. We have been with Dr. Barry for over 10 years and through all 4 births of our children. We pray for him and his young family as they share this uninterupted time together. Barry we love you and thank you so much for all the laughter and the advice. Best of wishes to you and your family, and God's greatest blessings. love the "M" Clan.
I am so sad :( We went to our appt yesterday and found out Barry's office is now closed. It was all I could do to stop myself from crying while standing there listening to the news. I have felt sad every since and know that we will never find another family Dr like him again. I wish we could have told him how much we appreciated him and how much he taught us, but we will likely not get that chance. In the hopes that he reads this one day, I want to say "Barry, we will miss you and there won't be a Dr's appt in our future where we won't wish it was with you. I hope some miracle happens and you are cured or at least relieved of your illness and can again have a full and normal life. For all you've done for everyone, it's the least that should be done for you. Please know you are in our thoughts and we will continue hoping for your good health and happiness. You are more than our family GP, we think of you as a friend"
Dr. Barry Friesen has been our family doctor for over 10 years. There is just nothing wrong to be said about him. He truly has been the best doctor I have ever had. He not only gives helpful advice, he is also truly interested in our family. He has helped our family through several crises over the years for which we are grateful. I've not had a need to look for a second opinion as I trust his. I agree that he doesn't mince words. I like his direct and up front approach. We also thank God for him and will also keep him in our thoughts and prayers as he faces his health issues.
We've had the privilege of Barry as our family's doctor for the past 10+ years. What can I add to all that's already been said, he truly cares - that is what everyone needs, a doctor we can TRUST. Add to that a great sense of humour, a genuine sense of caring about your life outside the Dr's office, that's who Barry is. Too many times I hear people complain about their doctor, or the prognosis provided. Not once have we had a complaint or felt his analysis/prognosis fell short. We will truly miss his care, and want to provide him with sincere support equal to that he gave us as he faces his own health challenges now. Life can be cruel, but we thank God for the gift He gave all of us in Barry Friesen.
Dr. Friesen is the absolute best doctor I have ever had! He is so personable, and the atmosphere is always so friendly and relaxed. I cannot say enough good things about him. I dont' think he is accepting new patients though, as I tried to get my friend in to see him, and they said no-go. Too bad, cause like I said, he is the best.
