Dr Barkoff is the best. Period. A highly skilled and compassionate doctor who walks the talk. Sadly however, her policy of cash payment makes the treatment of mast cell disease, which is leaving me housebound and quote ill, unaffordable. Literally no other doctor in the area has her level of seasoned expertise. She was my physician when I could afford her. She got me back on my feet at one time.
Dr. Barkoff is a life saver for sure. She is so caring and responsive. My son has suffered with extremely challenging thyroid issues for years and her out of the box thinking has been amazing. She is so knowledgeable and has the best bedside manner ever. We recommend her highly!
Dr. Marla Barkoff is truly incredible. She is thorough, compassionate, preserving and honest. She is LGBTQ friendly and collaborative. She is someone you will look forward to seeing! Grateful she takes on complicated patients with a positive attitude.
