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."

Dr. Brig is the best physician I have ever had. Always takes time. Remembers who I am, who my family is, and about my health care.

Dr. Barness spends a lot of time with his patients, it always could be more, I could spend hours talking to him. He is the greatest.

This was my first time with Dr. Barsness. I really liked him and was very impressed. He took a lot of time to get to know me and was easy to understand. I feel he is an asset to the clinic. I am going to recommend him to my wife, as she is searching for a good local provider.

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!!!

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.
