I had been having GI issues for the pas 2 or 3 months but I was told by family that it was because I have gained weight, and I kept being made to feel like I was crazy or over exaggerating by family. When I came to Dr. Barker’s office, his nursing staff could tell I was super nervous, and assured me I was doing the right thing. Upon speaking to Dr. Barker, he explained to me a full treatment plan and had me immediately scheduled for some diagnostic procedures and I immediately received blood work. I couldn’t have asked for a better experience :)"
