Ratings for Dr. Mira Barman
I've been a patient of Doctor Barman for over ten years. Her care is excellent 80% of the time but she makes catastrophic mistakes. I was misinformed about the results of a test for almost a year. That could have cost me my life. Luckily it worked out on its own but I don't think healthcare should be about luck. It's hard to say she's negative overall because her referrals are also excellent as well as her infant care. I'd just say there are are some serious grey areas in her approach-including an elitist approach to patients by both her and her receptionist. I'm not sure how that works in an OHIP funded office but they make it happen.
I was a patient of Dr. Barman for over a decade. I stopped going to see her after she "forgot" to tell me that my lab results were abnormal. This is despite me calling the front desk to inquire about results multiple times. As a result, I had to have a last-minute surgery that was only possible because my specialist put me on a priority list. After this experience, I could not recommend her to anyone. Yes, she is a very nice person but this oversight could have had grave consequences for me. This is the reason for one star in 'knowledge' and 'helpfulness'.
I like Dr. Barman. I have been seeing her for the past 15 years. I rarely get sick so I don't go to see her often. when I do, she always listens and wrote down what I said and put it in the computer. so she has record. i like that. she is very organized. and referred me to specialist which I should be seeing .. she is good hub for your overall health. I highly recommend her.
I go to Dr. Barman as rarely as possible. Her go-to advice for everything is to take Advil or Ibuprofen, and she continuously checks Google while I talk to her. I can check Google myself at home, and taking Advil or Ibuprofen is useless for some problems so there is no point in going to see her.
Dr. Barman is an amazing doctor who really takes the time to listen to your concerns. I've been a patient of hers for over 10 years and I am very grateful for the care, compassion, and excellent medical care she has provided. Dr. Barman will actually call you at home to check in and follow up on issues. She is hands-down the best family doctor you could ask for.
Dr. Barman is an wonderful doctor and my entire family loves her! My daughter was at Sick kids and was so scared and she said she wished Dr. Barman was here to take care of her. Dr. Barman is empathetic, does her research, follows up and really cares for her patients. For us, we are extremely happy with Dr. Barman.
I have been seeing Dr Barman for abt 10yrs, maybe one of her first patients. She has grown in confidence since then. I find that she actively listens and never dismisses my concerns. She takes her time with you, you never feel rushed. She is always thoughtful about making you comfortable- e.g. the pap smear which I hate. She doesn't reprimand me or make me feel stupid although I have repeatedly failed to follow through on tests or taken medication. She has always referred me to excellent specialists and once, when I had a terrible specialist, she referred me to a 2nd one who was excellent.She follows through on my requests. I do find it odd that she googles things as we talk, but I don't expect her to remember everything. I think what she does is scan through the information to ensure she hasn't missed anything and I find that reassuring. I would do that as well if someone asked me a question. As for Rose, the receptionist, I think she is wonderful. She always finds a time for me.
