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...more
