Patient Comments (1)
in Houston, TX |
Dr. Barker and his staff put in 3 stents in my heart in Jan 2016. It was a wonderful experience (as good as it can get). I am doing GREAT! Procedure was done at Houston Methodist Hospital in the medical center. He has been my cardiologist since mid 2013. He and his staff always take the time to listen to my questions. Appointments are easy and timely. I recommend him 100% and the Methodist Hospital.
