"Dr. Barker is the best! I am so grateful to have him as my doctor because he makes me feel that my concerns matter. He takes his time to listen to your concerns, provides a solution to the problem, and is very thorough. I was in the hospital for the first time in my life. After several weeks of losing blood, several visits to the emergency room, three blood transfusions and not knowing the cause. Dr. Barker was the first doctor to suggest an iron infusion. After the iron infusion, my blood count began to rise, and I was finally able to be released from the hospital. Dr. Barker also performed an Upper Endoscopy and a Colonoscopy on me as well."

"First of all, if I could give more than five stars, I would. 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 :)"
