Brigg Barsness, MD

Specialties: Family Medicine
"I always ask myself 'How would I like a doctor to treat me?' I don't like to lecture patients. I prefer to engage them in a two-way conversation and empower them to make their own health care decisions."

Follow up on concerns and tests seems to be on me to use the MY CHART function. Would prefer a written of verbal follow up on the health concerns, next steps and tests completed.

Dr. Brigg Barsness and Dr. Lisa Simonds ALWAYS are professional, competent, kind and caring. They both take the time to listen to your concerns and provide the best possible medical care. When I or my family see the physician assistants Amanda Strom PA and Maggie Ventura PA, it is wonderful how they provide exceptional health care when needed too. Thank you to ALL the staff at the Union Grove clinic for all that you do for our community! We are glad that you are here!!!

I already have my son, daughter, mother and significant other going to see Dr.Barsness.

Dr. Barsness is, hands down, the very best doctor our family has ever seen. He genuinely seems to care about all of us, and is very thorough in his care. We've never felt rushed or like we still had questions when leaving an appointment with him. I recommend him to everyone I know. There are much closer doctors we could see, but we drive the extra distance to see him because we've never received such excellent care from a physician.

I always recommend Dr. Barsness to others that are seeking a family physician or are unhappy with their own Doctor. I am blessed to have Doctor Barsness as my Doctor. with my unique health problems, he is the only one that never gives up on me. I like how he is always up to date with new medical information as well as Rx.

Dr. Barsness is excellent. I currently do not have health insurance so I paid out of pocket to come and see him. He always listens to me and gives me options in easy to understand concepts. He takes into consideration my concerns and works with me. I recommend Dr. Barsness to everyone who will listen. He has given me peace of mind and instilled confidence in me that his treatment plans will work. I absolutely love coming to see him.

Dr Barnsness and his nurses, etc are THE best! Seeing Dr. Barnsness makes me feel very comfortable and at ease. No one has ever ever been anything but wonderful to me.

He always makes me feel at ease. He probably would have been a comedian if the doctor thing didnt work out.

This doctor is very good!

I like Dr. Barsness so much that my mother, daughter son, and boyfriend go to him from my recommendation! I believe in him and trust him. He is the very few dr's out there now that just give you prescription and out the door they go. He really cares about his patients!

Dr. Brigg Barsness is the best doctor ever!!!! Makes me feel at ease, knows his "stuff." listens to me and explains things in a manner that I can understand

Dr. Barsness is new to me....I have been with Dr. Wisniewski but mostly his NP, Jennie Peters, who I found out is not doing physicals anymore. Dr. Barness is my husband's doctor and has a closed practice. I asked that he would take me on and he did. He is a wonderful, open, caring doctor that spends as much time as I need and helps me with all my questions and concerns. I'm very lucky to have him.
September 08, 2015
love Dr Barsness he has a wonderful bedside manner. He cares for his patients very much.

It was not made clear to me what the next steps are and when we would follow up to talk about the annual physical results or follow up to my accident injuries. Still do not know today.
