Dr Segal is super kind and patient!
i REALLY ENJOY THE 7:00 am APPOINTMENTS THAT ARE AVAILABLE.
always seems to be long wait in waiting room past appointment time
Dr. Segal is excellent. Very knowledgeable. He keeps up to date on the latest evidence based treatments and preventive care. He is always pleasant, is a good listener, and I trust him.
Very good attention from provider and staff. Sometimes the follow up on test results is slow.
Excellent care provider. Thank you!!
All good, only long wait
The care provider was very professional and patient oriented. He took time to review my health care and provided information for my continued treatment.
Dr segal is wonderful,Caring, professional, knowledge .
I just moved here from Tacoma, WA and this was my first visit with Dr. Segal. I lucked out in selecting a physician who is very competent and listens.
all good with good information
Dr. Segal is an extraordinary clinician, a caring doctor and a great person. I am very fortunate that he looks after my health.
Dr. Barry Segal is one of the most caring , courteous, empathetic, Drs that I've ever gone too. He literally changed my life by actually taking the time to not only talk to me about my overall health, but to look at the bigger picture, by asking me about my family , am I happy where I'm at in life , what do I think I could do to make it better, . I mean this Man covered everything, or should I say uncovered. Dr. Barry Segal diagnosed me with an issue I've been dealing with my entire life , we tried a variety of medication, and by some miracle he found the one that changed my life forever. I now lead a much more productive life , and am very happy with where I am right now, because of him. I can't say enough good about him ,and tell anyone I know who's looking for a Dr. , to stop! , becauseI'm thrilled to recommend him to anybody, and know that they'll be as happy as I am being there. I can keep going on , but he's the most authentic, compassionate, caring, Dr, or man for that matter that I've been privileged to be seen by.
dr Segal is caring, brilliant, and thorough.
Dr Segal is excellent and has a friendly yet professional manner. I like him very much. He is smart and sophisticated in both his grasp of the latest medical information and of effective patient interaction. I'm very happy he is my GP.

I like him and his operation.
really good experience. very helpful.
Enjoyed the first-time check up with Dr. Segal. His calm manner, understanding and attempt to clearly explain was most appreciated. He did not rush through the appointment and thoughtfully took his time with my husband and I. I left feeling confident in his ability as a physician.
Dr. Segai is an excellent doctor. He is a great listener; he know patient histories, and he provides solutions to problems and presents the solutions in a way that is understandable to the patient. Plus, he is comforting. I, as his patient, appreciate all of these things.
great listener. so smart. obviously very caring. I feel like I have a doctor who has taken the time to understand my whole picture as a person.

Dr. Barry Segal is an extremely caring and an excellent physician who takes time making sure in caring for his patient's health and welfare. Would highly recommend him to all my friends.
Dr. Segal has been my family doctor for more than 10 years and he is an excellent physician.
Dr Segal is the BEST! I trust him- he truly is caring and concerned about any problems I bring to him. He really listens and I never feel rushed when I am with him. He takes his time, explains things, and always is able to calm any fears I may have. He explains things so I can understand them and always answers my questions in ways I can understand. He is a true blessing!
The discussion we had over the thyroid medicine was resolved by taking three tests.
Excellent Physician. Would and do recommend him at all times.

Very good provider. saw me immediately and recommeneed that I go to the ER, which I did.
Excellent doctor . who really looked into what may be wrong and came up with a diagnosis
Dr. Segal knows and remembers me and my family. He is very carrying and spends a lot of time with me during the visit. I never feel rushed and know that he listens to everything I say.
i waited for almost 2 hours and was never seen by the doctor. my appointment was at 10:15. i arrived 15 minutes early as instructed and at 11:45, I left out of frustration. this facility doesn't appreciate your time.
Everything was good.
always attentive and thorough
I had an excellent visit with Dr. Segal. he is very thorough and I always feel very satisfied with his care.
dr Segal is genuinely concerned for my health.
he is friendly and easy to talk to
First time using the Doctor and will now switch to him as my doctor
Dr. Segal is easily approachable, knowledgeable and comprehensive. An excellent diagnostician!
The doctor himself was fine; this is a useless mandatory thing, so he did fine in his role. He will get his $300 or so for doing nothing of purpose.
My doctor Dr.Segal was very good. And answered all my questions.
Dr. Segal is a very good doctor.
Dr. Segal was excellent. I'm very happy with him. He listened to and addressed my complaints and concerns, made valuable preventative suggestions, and got to know me a little bit. My only complaint is that the appointment started half an hour late. Still, overall I would happily recommend Dr. Segal to others. He's great.
Thoughtful, professional, knowledgeable and agreeable. Fabulous bedside manner. Very thorough. I left confident in the care I had received. The only downside is that he was 40 minutes late for the checkup, but we still got out on time, and I didn't feel we had been short changed in terms of time or care. I was very pleased with this care, and thrilled to have found such a high quality doctor as my PCP.
Patient, kind, and thorough
everything was great except that the doctor was 30+ minutes late (to the office, not just for my appointment. I was the first patient in the office at 7a)
my doctor arrived at the office (walked into the waiting room from outside) 20 min after my scheduled appointment- when his office had rescheduled me from a previous appointment. he saw me about an hour after my scheduled appointment. I was called back to a room about 25 min after my scheduled appointment. at no time was I told by staff how long my doctor would be before I was seen.
this was my first appointment with Dr. Segal. I really liked him and felt like he listened to me carefully and took his time with me.
my doctor is the best out there. i am a very sick person without his caring and understanding i could not make it this far. he supported me all along with my sickness. thank you and god bless you
He's a very thorough doctor!
I had a very good experience.
long wait times but the doctor is very good with his care of people
I've been with Dr. Segal for many years, and am consistently pleased with the care.
Great rapport and understanding of my circumstances.
a long wait to see dr.
Happy with my care
listens carefully. sending me for X-ray and PT which what I was going to ask got
Every thing is excellent and I would like to be able to reduce the time waiting to see the doctor. I waited an hour and a half.
Dr. Barry Segal is a very good doctor.
Dr Segal is the best Dr I could ask for- he is kind, compassionate and he listens. He is very reassuring and I couldn't imagine going to anyone else.
I am very happy with the Care Dr.S provides for me. I am very comfortable talking to him about my health both physical and mental. He doesn't pull any punches. I like that.
the doctor is always attentive and listens to my concerns about my health
the doctor is engaging and seemed to prepared to discuss any questions or concerns I had. He was able to quickly asses my needs and answered all the questions I had before I even asked them.
Dr. Segal patiently addressed all of my concerns and asked questions for clarification as needed.
Overall good experience. Doctor Barry Segal is a wonderful human being and a really good listener. He was very nice to talk to, was patient and really easy going. He was very respectful and always smiled while talking.
wait time has improved
Amazing provide: listens, explains, excellant diagnostition. wait times are a bit too long.
The provider was very kindly explained and listened to what I said checking my previous medical records. He understood my circumstances and tried to provide what I need with honesty. It will be best if I can make an appointment with my PCP when I need next time.
Dr Segal and his staff are a first class operation!
dr segal respectfulprofessionalexcellent dr
For 24 years, Dr. Barry Segal has been a caring, professional and thorough doctor, and a decent human being. I have referred patients to him. We need more doctors like him.
Dr. Segal is a fantastic doctor who genuinely listens to and addresses your concerns.
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.
all questions answered to my expectations
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.
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!
He's a nice, friendly man.
Dr Segal is a brilliant and thorough ,caring and an excellent diagnostician!
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.
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 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.)
The waiting time was too long though I was on time based on my appointment, knowing so well that we pay parking time
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.
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.
The Doctor is very knowledgeable and curteous, and explain things very clearly. His staff is also very helpful.
we talked & were very understanding to each other
Best PCP and staff ever!!
my doctor always goes the extra mile I personally contacting me with test results to make sure I understand them. He always does this not just once but always!
Dr. B.Segal is the BEST
