Dr. Barker was comfortable to talk. Listened to all of my concerns, and was very informative. By far one of the best doctors I have been seen by in a long time. Will recommend him any chance I get

Dr. Barker spoke to me like we were having a casual conversation. He asked my opinions and displayed a very caring demeanor during my visit. He wasn't rushed and made sure I had no more questions before he left. Very happy with Dr. Barker and will continue to drive from northwest Illinois to see him again.
