Dr. Barocas has excellent bedside manners. I am so thankful that he moved my surgery up and ultimately saved my life. He was the 3rd Oncological Surgeon I had seen in my battle with cancer and by far the most intelligent and caring. He came to see me every day for 2 wk during my hospital stay, except for one day that he apologized that he was in surgery and wasn't able to come. He even called me after I got home on the day of discharge. Phenomenally dedicated surgeon with a heart of gold for his patients!
