The following are reviews from patients of Dr. Barcohana.
“Dr. Barcohana was wonderful. I had back fusion surgery at L4-L5 and a huge nerve impingement causing really bad sciatica pain and that pain is completely gone. He described the surgery to me in detail so I knew what he was going to do and it was not going to be a huge incision. I am two months post surgery now and am improving daily.”
– Donna S.
“Dr. Barcohana is an incredible surgeon and a wonderful person. He had incredible people skills and understood the mental make up of his patients. He always explains every step of the way. He has a great team. I especially want to commend Victoria Hernandez who is still so professional and kind.”
– Stephen W.
“My experience with Dr. Barcohana was better than I could have imagined. He was calm, articulate, caring and extremely competent. From my first visit to my last follow up, he has been an excellent communicator. He explained my diagnosis, his recommendations, and expected results. He was thorough, calm in manner and an excellent surgeon. I call him “Dr. Magic Hands” as two previous doctors had given my a less than 50% chance for a successful outcome. Dr. Barcohana was slightly more optimistic. He had a different technique in mind, which proved to be a great success!”
– Margo M.
“Dr. Barcohana has been amazing!!”
– Amanda B.
“Outstanding care and concern from Dr. Barcohana and his complete staff. I was in considerable discomfort returning from an overseas flight and his admissions coordinator Victoria was able to schedule my procedure for the earliest opportunity. Obtained immediate relief following the procedure and follow-up support and daily portal updates during the initial recovery addressed any issues. Would highly recommend Dr. Barcohana and his team at SCOI.”
– Donald J.
“Dr. Barcohana performed my surgery and did the best he could with what he found. He explained what he did and what I should expect. He answered most of my questions in a very professional way.”
– Vincent K.
“I have been going to SCOI for 20 years, most of it for work comp injuries. I came back after my neurologist recommended surgery. I had cervical spinal fusion surgery on 3 levels by Dr. Barcohana. He and Esther were so professional, allayed my fears (and my husband's), answered all our questions and made the whole operation before, during and after made all of it bearable. I would recommend SCOI to everyone I know. SCOI has a sterling reputation and with staff such as Dr. B and Esther I can see why. Hurray for all of you!”
– Mickaela E.
“Dr. Barcohana is direct and precise. Expertise. I have a lot of confidence in his diagnosis and treatment regime.”
– James M.
“Dr. Barcohana, Esther Kishomoto, all the desk staff and nurses and especially Victoria Hernandez have been so wonderful. I am looking forward to my surgery, but all along the way they have answered every dumb question with patience and care, and I cannot say enough about all of them and SCOI.”
– Benjamin K.
“I felt comfortable and confident about the treatment plan ahead - physical therapy and a vest. It's been going great! I felt like the doctor was not an extremist and I felt like I was in good hands.”
– Samantha M.
“I had a great experience with Dr. Barcohana & the staff was great, they treated me real good. I always tell everybody that Dr. Barcohana was the best.”
– Eric F.
“Dr. Barcohana was very detailed in his explanations of the problem and treatment solutions. He made it easy to understand everything.”
– Troy C.
“I feel taken care of and like it was a complete success.”
– Marcus F.
“I always trust Dr. Barcahona. I have been going to the Doctor and Ester and on every visit I get clear understanding on any problems with my back. I had a 3 level fusion and have done excellent. Dr. Barcahona is such a excellent surgeon and Ester his PA is also amazing. I would never even think of going to a different doctor ever. They both take the time to explain everything and make you very comfortable. I appreciate them both very much.”
