My Philosophy and Approach to Wellness...

An internist's knowledge, experience, insight and technical ability all come together when evaluating and treating patients. My goal is to help each of my internal medicine patients achieve their optimal health through wellness and prevention that goes beyond concierge medicine. I believe the key to this is forming a highly personalized partnership with each patient by sincerely caring, listening, educating and advocating for them. I get to know each of my patients well and develop strong working relationships with them. I am one of the few female physicians in the Greater Hartford area of Connecticut offering this type of personalized healthcare approach to internal medicine.

My practice currently serves all of Greater Hartford including West Hartford, Simsbury, Avon, Farmington, Glastonbury and Suffield, CT as well as Longmeadow, MA. I am affiliated with St. Francis Hospital and Medical Center in Hartford, CT as an attending physician. I provide primary care, internal medicine with interests in cardiovascular health (including stress testing), preventive medicine, women’s health, integrative health, bariatric medicine and travel medicine.

from Vickie in CT March 29, 2017 for Barbara B. Padilla, MD

Dr. P is just amazing, she is everything you want in a MD and a close friend wrapped into one. I live in FL 6 months of the year, and am now on my 4th Dr, because I can't find anyone who delivers care like Dr. P. If I get really sick I hope I am near Dr.P.

from Vincent in CT March 27, 2017 for Barbara B. Padilla, MD

Dr. Padilla, I think that you are the most compassionate doctor that I know. Thank you for your care.

from Jonathan February 8, 2017 for Barbara B. Padilla, MD

I'm from a medical family. My late father was a Rheumatologist and my mother is a retired nurse. I grew up in an MD dominated neighborhood in the 1960's and 1970's and received physicians courtesy medicine until my early adult life. It wasn't until late in life that I realized how special my medical care was back then.

As I have aged and the world of medicine /… See more

from Deborah in CT March 7, 2016 for Barbara B. Padilla, MD

Dr. Padilla knows me. I never feel like a number or someone that she just looks up my file and regurgitates anything I've told her in the past. She's my shrink as well as my medical doctor. I love the individualism that she and her staff knows who I am and it's all confidential. I love my doctor. Doctor Padilla definitely gets an A+ from me

from colleen in CT February 28, 2014 for Barbara B. Padilla, MD

A little less than 3 years ago, I was diagnosed with a rare neuroendocrine cancer and treated in the only manner available...surgery. The greatest stress was navigating the miriad tests and being available since we travel quite a bit. Dr. Padilla is a gem. My husband, his mother and I all see her. Not only is her staff delightful, but I never feel rushed during my appointments. I need to… See more

I was at wedding in San Francisco and came down with a horrible infection, sore throat and fever. I called Dr Padilla for help and to everyone's amazement Dr Padilla called me back swiftly.

from Olivia in CT February 8, 2014 for Barbara B. Padilla, MD

I am soooo excited to be doing this for Barbara, my doctor. Dr. Padilla was my doctor before MDVIP. I remember being in another doctors office and hearing someone speak glowingly about her. I was looking to change doctors because of feeling like I was just a number, in a waiting room for 50 minutes waiting for my appointment again.

from Nancy in CT February 7, 2014 for Barbara B. Padilla, MD

Dr. Padilla is much more than a doctor. She is more like a professional friend. She is always concerned about my health issues and always creates time to
listen to me. She seems to have built her staff with her ideals and to me that is also a bonus when visiting or calling her. What else can I say. I think she is great!

from Rosis April 15, 2012 for Barbara B. Padilla, MD

Dr. Padilla is truly an effective listener and translator of 'symptoms' to the actual root causes. She is not only receptive to the latest health & wellness news and unconventional medicine & approaches to health, she is also highly proactive at finding viable and practical strategies and tactics that I, as a patient, can easily grasp and implement into my health &… See more
