"Dr. Barbara Bartlik, sex therapist and psychiatrist helped me, in her juicy, forthright manner, with ideas for heightening sexuality as we age."
- Jane Fonda, in the Acknowledgements section of her book "Prime Time: Love, Health, Sex, Fitness, Friendship, Spirit, Making the Most of All of Your Life", August 2011
"For the psychiatrist who believes there is more to happy practice than just writing scripts, which I think, in all honesty, is most of us, Integrative Sexual Health is a valuable office resource."
- A book review by Jane Sofair in the Newsletter of the Association of Women Psychiatrists, 2019
"I have been a patient of Dr. Bartlik’s for over 20 years. She is amazing!!! She is so caring and compassionate, and deeply listens to one’s issues, enabling her to decipher a well tailored and individualized treatment plan. She is forward thinking and modern, and not limited to rigid and static diagnostic techniques, that many less sophisticated physicians often fall into. She is up date on the latest theories and methodologies in her field, and has a particularly impressive knowledge of new therapeutic uses for vitamin and mineral supplementation effective in alleviating both depression and anxiety. Dr. Bartlik has not only helped my mental and emotional health, but through her extensive knowledge base and keen intuitive nature, has assisted me in moving towards a state of full body health and wellness. Dr. Bartlik is a gem, and truly provides a doctor / patient experience that is exceptional, and clearly establishes her as a leader in her field."
"Dr. Barlik as well as being an experienced highly qualified is a gifted psychiatrist . She understand the importance of therapy as well as medication and takes an integrative approach . She prescribes supplements appropriately and is happy to explain medications and reasons for treatment. I would highly recommend her."
"So many positive things to say sbout Dr. Bartlik. For me, the most important thing with a psychiatrist is their innate characteristic traits. Why this is important to me and I’m sure others would agree with me that you want your psychiatrist to be warm, empathetic, non-judgmental, not in a rush to hand you over prescriptions and get you out the door... to name a few. A psychiatrist whom you can trust and be completely open to while feeling safe, relaxed, understood, listened to, sympathized with, etc. is everything to me. It was obvious from my first visit that she deeply cares and was born to be a healer. I’ve been to many psychiatrists and have had horrible experiences that I almost gave up looking. I think it’s a miracle that the last doctor I told Myself I would try was “the one” for me. I had several psychiatric issues and a brain injury and I’m also in the medical field.. she not only is sharp as a tack but she listens, asks important questions, and made me feel so comfortable like I was talking to a friend. I can’t say enough good things about her. Don’t hesitate in your decision. Just Go! She’s not on my insurance but your health and well-being (especially mental health) has no price tag and she gives me receipts to submit to my insurance - sometimes they work.. honestly if you’re strapped for moneybags she’s not on your ensurance I would highly encourage you to go to her for one visit. She helped me out with price because she is a born-healer and cares more about helping people than the money and I trulg Believe that...you won’t regret it. One visit and you will understand everything I’ve said here. I am back to my happy, healthy, balanced self that I thought I could Never get back (due to a history of poor psychiatrists and mis-diagnoses and medicine that messed me up). I am so grateful she got me back on track. I feel like the very best version of myself everyday now. Re-read that last sentence. Now ask yourself, is that something you can put a price tag on?"
"Dr Bartlik is a true competent and caring professional. She is always looking for different ways to help you reach your goals and does not give up on you !!"

"I wish I had more space because I can’t rave enough about Dr. Bartlik! I finally feel I have my life back for the first time after decades of trying other doctors. There is no price tag I can put on feeling my best self every day. Not just “normal” but the VERY BEST VERSION of myself. I forgot what it felt like to be living my best life. She doesn’t take my insurance but I can say without a shadow of a doubt that she’s the best investment I’ve ever made in my life. I’m forever grateful to her!"
"She is brilliant concerned and devoted to patient care"
"Dr. Bartlik is an incredible doctor who is committed to finding treatments that work for her patients. She listens extremely well, and I was please that she helped me consider holistic, natural solutions for my condition as well as pharmaceutical ones."
"Dr. Barbara Bartlik has been an excellent source of advice for me for a number of years. I find her to be extremely knowledgeable and compassionate and feel lucky to have found her."
"Dr. Bartlik changed my life. I was a nervous wreck before I met her and couldn't sleep, and as a result my relationships fell apart over and over again. Dr Bartlik did lab tests for vitamins and minerals and found out that I was deficient in magnesium, zinc, and certain amino acids. She replaced them and I was a different person and no longer needed so much psychiatric medication"
I was depressed since I was a teenager and had been on antidepressants, anti-anxiety medications and medications for bipolar, and nothing got it right. Dr. Bartlik was the first doctor to check my thyroid thoroughly and she found that I was hypothyroid. After receiving thyroid medication, and nutritional supplements I was much better and was able to reduce my medications.
"I had erectile disorder (ED), and Viagra and other medications like it did not help me. They gave me headaches when I took dosages high enough to be effective. Dr. Bartlik started me on methylcobalamin (vitamin B12), magnesium and other supplements. The Viagra started working at low dosages that I could tolerate, and often I did not need to take it at all."
"Barbara, thank you for giving a wonderful talk entitled, “Practical Tips for Reclaiming Sexuality after Breast Cancer,” and for facilitating a group of breast cancer survivors at Montclair Breast Center.
You transformed feelings that are so terrifying and intimate, and, for many, shameful into something safe, healing and hopeful. The information was very useful to all of us, and I'm so grateful you agreed to come out to join our group."
