Meet The Allgenic Team

Igor L. Barsky

President

Mr. Igor L. Barksy is the President of Allgenic Health and Wellness, and the architect behind the overnight success of the industry leading corporation. Mr. Barsky brought to Allgenic his decades of experience as an entrepreneur, and created a top tier organization respected nationally by providers and operators. Mr. Barsky has amassed enduring success throughout his career, but there were many challenges along the way. At fifteen years old, Mr. Barsky immigrated to the United States from Ukraine with his family. He was very involved in art and music as a young man, but was always influenced by the successful businessmen in his family. He was always creative and had a mind for innovation. From an early age, he had a knack for figuring out how to take things apart, diagnose the way they work, and improve upon them.

However, business was in his blood. At just sixteen years old Mr. Barsky began working for himself, and never looked back. Through hard work, determination, and a sheer will to succeed, he has created a number of very successful businesses. Though much of Mr. Barsky’s success initially came from real estate, he began focusing on the healthcare industry. He built and ran several successful physical therapy facilities and chiropractic facilities, employing teams of M.D.s, D.O.s, P.T.s, P.A.s, and other essential staff. Mr. Barsky has had many successful endeavors in both real estate and healthcare, many of which he is still a key stakeholder and plays an important role in leadership.

In 2014, it was his son Robert Barsky who approached Mr. Barsky with an idea for a new business opportunity. Relying on their experience of developing and sustaining teams of highly successful professionals, Robert and Igor went straight to work, and Allgenic Health and Wellness was born. The team culture and environment Mr. Barsky has created, has been most responsible for the company’s success. He credits the accomplishments of Allgenic to the selflessness of his many employees who have made Allgenic Health and Wellness what it is today, Allgenic is a leader in providing a high quality white glove service to physicians throughout the United States, and with Mr. Barsky at the helm, the future looks very bright for Allgenic and for those suffering from debilitating allergies.

Robert Barsky

Vice President

Robert L. Barsky is a multi-lingual, first generation American, whose family hails from Ukraine. During his youth, Robert spent his time between New York and South Florida, where his family worked hard on establishing and expanding their small businesses. After completing high school Robert indulged in traveling through Europe for a year. Though he enjoyed experiencing the different cultures, when it was time for him to continue his education he was drawn back to New York. There he attended Hunter College on an academic scholarship, pursuing a future in Economics. During this time Robert was introduced to a colleague of his father who sparked a new interest in him.

This interest led Robert to Dual Major in Economics and Pre-Med. In his last year of school Robert was awarded an internship in Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania’s Trauma Center. Here he not only tasked with observing trauma surgeries but he spearheaded the research initiative on a bone fracture study. His work was thorough and innovating—leading to it being published in the New England Journal of Medicine. Though this was a rewarding time for Robert, he decided to continue his initial path and head into the business world. Due to the influence of his father, who played a great role in inspiring passion in Robert, he chose to work his way into the business world from the ground up.

He took a role with one of his family’s companies, at first it was a physical role—working on office builds. He moved up from there, along the way gaining insight to better understand the structure of the business. Under his family’s teachings, Robert established himself as a professional with a good work ethic, core values and remarkable entrepreneurial skills. His personal belief is that “there is no task too large to assume”. He owes his success to his father, who can be his biggest critic and biggest supporter.

He now supports his father at Allgenic Health and Wellness where he assumes the position of Vice President, here he is responsible for the Marketing and Sales initiative, which he is taking nationwide.
