We have only seen Dr. Adam Barsella twice, but he is a thorough doctor with amazing bedside manner. He speaks to my kids in a very respectful way. But most importantly, he speaks to me, as the parent, in a very kind, non-condescending way. My least favorite pediatricians are those that talk to me in a baby voice as though they are addressing an infant and those that poke fun at my concerns or questions. Dr. Barsella is the complete opposite of this. He acknowledges any question I ask and never makes me feel that my questions are unimportant in any way. He ALWAYS responds in an understandable, insightful, respectful way. He also directly talks to my kids during the appointments and asks if THEY have any questions or concerns. I appreciate Dr. Barsella acknowledging that it is ok for my kids to speak up if they have questions too.
