Dr. Barad is he best pediatric GI there is. He is very attentive, explains things clearly, and talks to the patient vs. the parent, when discovering what the problem is and/or explaining that it is not in their head, etc. Would highly recommend him to anyone who is needing a GI doctor. We drive from Austin just to see him.

Dr. Barad engaged and connected with my son. He listened to him and talked to him about possible diagnosis, procedure and treatments. He made sure my son had a clear understanding of what he was thinking as a doctor and he made sure that my son had a say in the process of his plan. I appreciated that he listened and genuinely cared for my son.

Dr. Barad was one of the best doctors I have ever encountered. He did absolutely everything right. He spoke to the patient (my son) instead of just the parent. He explained everything in easy to understand terms. He partnered with us (not "my way or the highway"). Just excellent in every way!
