Dr. Barkopoulos is exceptionally kind, caring and brilliant. WELL worth any wait in the waiting room.\r
A better psychiatrist does not exist.

We discovered Dr. Barkopoulos a few months ago after a bad experience with another specialist. Other doctors referred us to him, because they consider him superb. It's obvious that he's highly trained. He's also very responsive to emergency (after-hours) calls to his cell phone. There may be delays in the waiting room. But IMHO, he's worth waiting for.

Pros: superb doctor, responsive in emergencies, kind

Cons: rarely on time

.

I went to see Dr Barkopoulos 6 times and EVERY single time, his office called to reschedule. The last time the office called to reschedule me AGAIN, I said that the next time they did it they would have to give me 48 hours notice, as I am required to give them. When I did eventually get in to see him, I would have to wait at least half an hour because he was behind schedule. I understand that emergencies happen, however, I do not believe that every single time I saw him over several months that an emergency occurred. Rather, I think that he and his staff are not able to properly manage his schedule. As a matter of fact, the very first time I called and booked a first morning appt, his office asst said, "Oh just so you know, he never arrives to the office on time in the morning, so it will probably be later than the time I give you." That should have been a big red flag.

I do believe he is an excellent doctor, however, I can't deal anymore with the scheduling issues and am going to find a new dr, which is a shame, really.

Pros: very good psychiatrist

Cons: long waits, cancelled appts

I went to him for meds, he never remembered me, and the wait was once up to 2 hours. He won't give refills for zoloft and cytomel (these are not narcotics, or sedatives) --he claims this is because the pharmacy will make an error. And that would not have been a problem - but the refill request was never faxed back to pharmacy in a timely manner, -- every month it would take me 7 or 8 phone calls to get him to contact the pharmacy and days of waiting. So I became ill from not taking medication (because I couldn't get it), -- and he didn't seem to care, and this happened every month, like clockwork. Very frustrating! Seeing him was giving me more anxiety than my problems. The entire session I would plead with him to please straighten this out, and each time he would claim that I never told him about this issue before, Oy Vey. Finally went to a different doctor who gladly writes me refills. I come from a family of psychiatrists, and they never heard of one not prescribing refills for these meds. He also is not someone to go to for talk therapy, he doesn't listen or remember!!!

Pros: none

Cons: Does not listen, prescription error, very long wait

I found this doctor through the list of providers through my insurance. The wait was over 30 min, but that's okay - - i know medical offices are like this. I came to this doctor explaining some of my problems. In our 45 min discussion, I tried to tel him everything; he would jot down notes as I spoke. I told him that one of my problems was lack of libido (at only 20 years old, aaah). To combat my anxiety, he decided to put me on a medication that actaully made one's drive WORSE. Thank god I did my research.

The medication prescribed made me sick, so I tried to call through out the day during business hours. No answer. I left a message saying how sick I felt and that I will stop taking these meds. I aksed for him to call me back-but he didn't. A few days later I called again and left another message.. nothing.

Even after weeks, he never gave me a call to check up on me and my ADD. It's funny, if you go to a doctor for ADD and anxiety, you'd think they'd check up on you or at least ask why you havent returned for a month. He didn't care one bit.

I got my insurance today. He billed my insurance 425 dollars. 425 DOLLARS... for what? This made angered me greatly. This is why our health insurance is so high, because of this sick cycle. I just don't think that 425 dollars for less than an hour is fair. He never called me, even after I left a message saying I didn't feel good.

Some kind of doctor... my friends' docs check up on them and call them regarding some issues. They don't forget about their patients.

The only thing this man remembered is billing my insurance that high.

Honestly, after the session I was satisfied. I thought he was a rather "hip" psychiatrist and could get me some help.

I was wrong.

I was already seeing a psychologist, still having problems, went to Dr. Barkopoulos to get set up with meds. He's very patient, good listener, good dialogue and knows his stuff. Did a thorough exam of my mental state before recommending any meds... caught stuff that I didn't realise was going on with my head since the anxiety was overwhelming everything else.
Dr. Barkopoulos put me on Lexipro, which has done wonders, got my life back again. He's been good at following up and advising on side effects.
The office wait can be a little long, so plan for it. Smart doctor, nice guy =)
