Great experience with Dr. Barker. He was my cardiologist and a member of my surgical team. He took the time to listen to my concerns and explained my TAVR procedure in detail. Full up was extensive. I would highly recommend Dr.Barker

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.
