I have been going to see this doctor since I was a child, I am now 24 yrs old.
He is funny, nice and likable. My parents also went to Dr. Baraka. However, they stopped going to him about 4 yrs ago. I couldn't understand why. Now I know. I went to see him about recommending some one to talk to about stress issues, I have been having. He told me I am depressed. But I AM NOT DEPRESSED. I just wanted someone who I could vent to. He gave me a for an anti-depressant, and never recommended anyone for me to talk to. He said I need the pills. He told me there were no side effects, when I google the name of the pill, all I could see were side effects after side effects. So basically he wouldn't listen to me, and lied to me about a prescription. Needless to say, I threw the pills out when I got home, and I am doing great without them.
My mom told me she stopped going to him for a mis diagnosis, and wouldn't listen to her when she was telling him the symptoms she was having. Same reason I will not be back to see him. Please do not trust this guy with your children just because he has a good personality.
