Amazing provide: listens, explains, excellant diagnostition. wait times are a bit too long.
I love Dr. Segal. Once I get in the room with him, the care is top notch and I would gladly recommend him to others. The only downside with the practice is the wait to see him. I have taken to ONLY scheduling "1st appointment of the day", and even with that I had a 30-45 min wait yesterday. If I need a sick visit, I go to quick-clinic.
Really like Dr. Segal and the office. The wait time is too long as I was in the waiting room for 45 min past my appointment and then after being taken to the room waited another 10 min before I saw the doctor.
I felt like he spent less time with me than i needed. he saw me more than an hour after my scheduled appointment.
As usual, the wait in the waiting room was a bit too long (approx 1/2 hour). Sometimes it's more. But in general, I am very fond and confident in Dr. Segal's abilities to take care of my health.
we love Barry and his team!
Excellent provider. Only negative is the wait time to actually see the doctor.
I think Dr Segal is a very caring and knowledgeable Dr who take very good care of me and takes the time to listen.
We love Dr Segal. I recommend him all the time!
My provider treated me with respect and talked to me about my health and the treatment that he is providing. We work together to try and obtain positive results.
Dr. Segal is the best. very caring in my wellbeing
Dr Segal is a very caring and compassionate doctor who spends time with and really listens to you. I love that he takes the time to really listen to and discuss your concerns.
I've moved alot through my adulthood so have had numerous doctors. Dr. Segal is a step above them all. Very rare for a doctor to follow up after business hours but Dr. Segal has done so on more than one occasion. I feel very confident in his care.
all questions answered to my expectations
efficient, caring and thorough
I had a very good experience with Dr. Segal, who is always very thorough and helpful.
The annual checkup went well.
Dr. Segal and staff are super in my opinion. They demonstrate tremendous concern and consideration for me and my problems and possess the skills, knowledge and ability to solve said problems.
excellent in all ways
excellent physician who provides comprehensive care that is a joint effort.
Dr Segal is an excellent doctor that cares about his patients.
I came in for an immigration health assessment. Dr. Segal is very nice and a pleasant physician, much more than most physicians I have worked with.
Everything went well.
I absolutely love this team of nurses and Dr's! Lois is always kind, Shaylin always answers my emails and the Dr knows ALL of my medical history me always suggests healthy options and choices!!!!
Very satisfied with the care from Dr. Barry Segal
Dr. Barry Segal is an excellent physician. He is caring and thorough in his expertise. His entire staff does a superb job.
Dr. Segal is my new Primary Care provider and I was very happy with the visit and check-up.
Dr.Segal is patient and listens to you. I enjoyed his attention he have me and talk about the problem
This is the second time seeing this provider and the last. While he seems like a nice person both times I wait to seem him an hour and 45 mins and had about 15 minutes with him addressing my concerns. I will be changing practices.
This is the second time I've visited Dr. Barry Segal. First time was a strongly negative experience, but the second time was significantly better. We met to discuss a recent ER visit I had over the recent holidays, and he ordered a follow-up CT scan. Anxiously awaiting his phone call for the results.
Dr.Segal spent enough time with me and listened to my medical concerns. He recommended treatment that would help to satisfy my questions.
Dr. Segal is an excellent physician and very concerned about my health outcome. I really appreciate him and his health team.
He was very efficient, yet very patient and calm.
Dr segal is an Excellent, caring dr
everyone was very considerate and helpful
Dr. Segal is, quite simply, the best doctor I have ever been to. He listens and is very thorough with his examination and analysis. He has helped me on many levels and I hope he never retires!
Dr Segal is a brilliant and thorough ,caring and an excellent diagnostician!
He's a nice, friendly man.
Doctor made follow-up call after visit to check on my mood regarding recent loss of a family member. This meant a lot to me.
Dr. Segal is excellent.
I waited almost an hour to see my PCP. He only spent a few minutes with me on my annual check up (though to be fair I was in the hospital that week and had a normal pre-procedure H & P.)
came to this office for a physical, blood work, and chest x Ray for my upcoming move to Australia. the doctor was very nice as was his receptionist. very helpful and made this process smooth and stress free.
i start feeling sick and i made appointment with my pulmonologist to be seen. in the meantime my condition got worse. i called my family doctor and he was able to see within few hours. i wants to thank the doctor and the office for their effort. thank to them i was able to celebrate the holyday with my family.
The waiting time was too long though I was on time based on my appointment, knowing so well that we pay parking time
I feel that my care provider was somewhat condescending to my family's decision-making regarding contraception.
Dr. Segal and his staff were courteous, but their entire team seems understaffed.
This was my first visit as a new patient. I was very impressed with his attention to detail, knowledge and ease with which I could talk with him about my health concerns.
Provider is treating me (my mother) in my assisted living residence. I did not go to the office. Excellent care and caring by this provider.
Dr Segal and his staff are wonderful. We couldn't hope to find a better doctor. He cares, he listens, his staff cares and listens too. We never feel rushed and he always asks if we have any questions or concerns about anything.
I've had chronic pain for many years and I've been to pain management for years. I live in CONSTANT pain and I've addressed this with the doctor and he tells me that my pain is not that bad. I've voiced my concerns about my quality of life and how I don't feel enough pain control to live with my health problems and still maintain some amount of happiness. it's caused me to become extremely depressed and all I get is another prescription for antidepressants. Granted, these antidepressants are supposed to help with some of the pain but I don't have the same opinions as my doctor does. I feel I've built up a tolerance to the meds I'm on now since I've been on them for over 10 years. I COMPLETELY understand about the opiate crisis this country is in!!! My immediate family has been affected by it. However, I am NOT addicted to any kind of street drugs nor have I ever been!!! But, I am made to feel like I'm an addict. It's not fair that patients that are legitimately having pain are being punished because of the awful disease of addiction to heroin in our country.
Always have an excellent experience with my provider.
everything with provider is great, great and great. your surveys are too long and repetitious.......
I have never had any bad experience with Doctor Barry Segal.
Dr. Segal is attentive who listens closely to his patient's concerns. He is kind and a brilliant doctor. I have referred 2 people to see him.

Very good experience during my doctor visit
I love this office ! I am always greeted when I come in with a hello.. the nurse is AWESOME! she remembers our last conversations from previous visits and asks about my family and how I am feeling!!! Dr Segal is so patient and thorough.. he always checks up to make sure I'm taking my medicine correctly and always askes about my health, how I am feeling.. doing! they are an awesome team!!!
All my experiences with my provider have been excellent. He is one of the three best providers I have had in my 87 years
dr Segal has been our Dr for more than 30 Years. we Trust Him!!
prescribed a dangerous medication at dangerous doses without explaining side effects according to pharmacy. didn't pay attention to my chief complaint which has been mentioned for the last three visits, and had to fight for a referral to an ENT for specialty examination. has not performed a head to toe exam ever. preventative care not offered.
only bad thing was he was 1 hour behind sch.
Dr. Barry Segal is tops, a decent man and a 'healer' in the oldest sense of the word.
It was seamless.
This doctor was very friendly and made me feel comfortable talking to him about my health.
My first time here and it was a goodexperience
My care provider may not be punctual, but he is NEVER rushed, takes all the time necessary to talk with me. I have a long standing relationship with him, he knows me and is familiar with my history.
not enough attention to diet and how it relates to conditions and meds.
Great thanks again for everything
As with most Dr's I see. I'm never seen"on time".
Dr Segal is very good and pays attention to detail
I am always greeted with a big smile (Tamara) when I visit or pick up prescriptions. the nurse was very friendly and understanding I was actually having anxiety that day and she was super helpful!! Dr Segal is so patient and talks about everything!!! I am so happy with this office as I recently changed from agh.. thank you!!
I have been seeing Dr. Segal for at least 16 years and he has consistently been the best PCP that I have ever seen. He gives me the time necessatry to dicuss whatever medical issues and questions that I have. Even more important, he listens carefully and is always responsive to my concerns. Most importantly, I believe that Dr. Segal is a highly talented diagnostician. As a PCP his role is most often to diagnose more than to treat, and to recognize when I need to see a specialist for further diagnosis or treatment. I can't remember a time when Dr. Segal has not come up with the right diagnosis. I think that it requires more skill and talent to be a good diagnostician, than it does to treat an illness. if you have the wrong diagnosis, you can't get the right treatment. Many PCPs aare deficiet in this aarea and simply pass the problem along or smply pass over it. Dr. Segal picks up on every sign of a potential problem, and follows up on it.
He is excellent!
Even though the wait time to see dr. Segal is running a bit late, I always know he will spend as much time with me as needed.
The nurse and assistant in the clinic provide me wonderful care and service. They are very kind and professional.
very good always
Overall, very good.
Dr Segal is always patient with me and takes the time necessary to answer all my questions and concerns.
Dr. Segal is a caring, knowledgeable excellent doctor who is has taken good care of me, my family and friends for many years. He has always been available when needed. I highly recommend him to others.
nice man, but rushed appointment. I don't feel he spent enough time checking my vitals and didn't even think it necessary to get blood tests until I insisted.
Wonderful MDGreat staff
friendly, warm yet professional
Dr. Segal and his staff did an excellent job processing my request to be seen, gave adequate attention to my concerns. Dr. Segal listens carefully and offers excellent opportunities to maintain the best health possible.
I am very comfortable with Dr Segal's practice,..... and very confident in their care.
Dr. Segal is the best!! He is the most kind and compassionately primary care physician I've ever had!!!
