I saw this provider a few years ago & I admittedly didn't have great feelings about it at the time. But I have to say that in the past few months, I've seen Dr. Barker/ his team 3 or 4 times and it's been so wonderful. They have been helpful, attentive & compassionate. They've taken the time to educate me about my physical situation & I feel very much like we're on a good path towards resolution. They have really been a bright spot in an otherwise frustrating/ painful/ challenging situation. I am grateful!

October 04, 2020
First time this has happened but I feel nurse missed me in the lineup. Had an 8:15 appointment. After 6 other people got called back before me and it is now 8:45 I asked if I had been forgotten. She assured me I hadn't but when she finally took me back at 8:50 I was put in an odd little room. Didn't have any of the things out that the doctor would need for my visit. I know she missed me in the lineup and it messed up my places I needed tone the rest of the day
October 01, 2020
I was limited in time - staff listened to my request provide excellent timely care and unanticipated boat from Barker that completed the consult NP and nurse both provided excellent professional care!

I think there was a mix up during my first surgery. I thought I was getting a "pestary" but he was thinking about surgery. I did get it straightened out by asking the nurse. So it was fine.
