I had one of my pierced ear repaired after all those years of wearing heavy earrings. The repair in my ear I didn't even feel it. One week later sutures removed. I had no pain and I love my new ear. Now to get it pierced again. I just love his staff and of course top notch doctor. When I get my face lift, this is where I am going. I have shopped around but I know in my hearts of hearts he will do a better job. He is professional and personable and honest. I love him and his staff. First review I have ever done. Wonderful doctor. You will not be disappointed.

Everything about my experience with Dr. Barach and his team has been a great experience. I went in with a lot of self doubt, since I suffered from a traumatic face injury. Dr Barach told me what he could do and thought this would help with the way the scar was pulling down on my eye. I went forward with the procedure and it turned out beyond my expectations. I have since gone back for other smaller options. Thank you Dr. Barach for helping to heal and get my self-esteem back.

I had a very good experience at my appointment yesterday! I was actually thinking about cancelling after reading some of the reviews, but I am so glad that I went and formed my own opinion. Dr. Gregory and the other medical staff are very knowledgeable and friendly! I had a very short wait time. I would encourage anybody to go to their office and form their own opinions.

Was in the woods last month... developed this horrible rash that was spreading rapidly up my arm. Scheduled an appointment right away and the rash is finally disappearing. Thank gosh.
Tips & Advices
Academic medical centers provide the widest range of specialty care treatments, including the latest technological advances, clinical trials, and surgical techniques. In general, an academic medical center is a better choice than a community hospital for complicated treatments or rare diseases. Pediatric intensive care, especially, is usually performed at academic medical centers.
Academic medical centers offer a broad range of specialized services, from allergists to urologists. Some of the larger medical centers have entire hospitals or clinics focused on a particular medical service, such as cancer treatment, though specialties vary among the centers. Patients whose community hospital or local doctors do not have the facilities or expertise to address complex medical conditions can be referred by their primary care physician or local specialist to a major medical center (there are more than a dozen in the United States).
Yes. In addition to their inpatient hospital services, medical centers can offer a wide variety of outpatient services, such as pain clinics, rehabilitation centers, surgery, imaging and laboratory, mental health treatment, and outpatient cancer treatment. Medical groups – doctors in private practice but affiliated with the medical center--will also have offices within the medical center.
Physicians, nurses, physician’s assistants, residents, and attending physicians makeup the clinical staff of an academic medical center.
Medical center accreditation is not required, but most centers work voluntarily toward accreditation because it represents higher standards of healthcare quality and patient safety.
