Total disclosure to start off. I would rather use another health care provider for my son if it were my decision alone, but it is not. I know the culture very well, not only have worked there in the past, my mother retired from Pedi after 30 years and she agrees with my distaste for S&W. BUT, I am impressed with the staff and there friendliness professionalism. Dr. Barad is probably the best Dr I've encountered in terms of communication and relatability. My son loves Dr Barad and even said "I love the Poop Doctor minutes before the Doc join us in the exam room. If he were a general practice pedi Dr, I would do my best to have him as my son's primary. If S&W would hire more staff like the people I interacted with on the 3rd floor and more Doctor were relatable, friendly, and showed they care about the people they treat as much as I've seen Dr Barad in two visits, my opinion of S&W would be greatly improved.

We saw Dr. Barad in the hospital while we were admitted. He explained what was going on with our child in great detail and answered a lot of our questions before we even asked them. After getting discharged we followed up with a different dr but preferred Dr. Barad so much that we whiched over to him. He has been the best gi specialist we've seen with any of my kids.

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.
