They listened carefully and got answers to questions I asked. They gave us information about things that will come in the future. It gave us a chance to check up on possibilities.

It was an honor to meet Dr. BARKHAUS, and get his expert opinion, and advice on a frightening diagnosis. He addressed EVERYTHING in a knowledgeable, calm, and comforting manner. I left the office visit with a clearer picture, and better attitude. I no longer feel afraid. He gave me peace of mind. Thank you Dr BARKHAUS

Dr. Barkhaus is one of the best providers I have ever seen, so this comment is no reflection on him. However, when I first tried to schedule an appt with neurology, there was over a 3 month wait to see someone, which is unconscionable. That needs to be changed. If Dr. Barkhaus hadn't accommodated me, I would have gone elsewhere (e.g. Aurora, etc).

This ALS Clinic is in a class all its own. The care and information we received was simply excellent. All of the Multi Disciplinary clinic professionals were knowledgeable, respectful, helpful, patient, and kind.

Dr. Barkhaus was extremely compassionate, caring, and dedicated to giving details and respect to my husband leaving him to know he (my husband) is in control of deciding the extent of care he wants for his future. Absolutely the best neurologist we have ever seen in the past 25 yrs. with his disease. I as his wife felt incredibly cared for and felt the drs. compassion for us both. Thank you Froedtert Hospital for doing things in this clinic so well! Signed, Grateful.

Dr. Barkhaus took the time to really listen to me and understand the history and reasons for visiting such a respected specialist. He showed me great respect and ensured that I fully understood the questions he was asking as well as discussing why a return visit is warranted. Job well done!
