I have been going to Dr. Barber for many years, and will always come back to him for my knee problems! He put a screw in my knee in 1989, and I have never had a problem related to that surgery. I am a clutz, so have had other injuries to my knee, but the screw has held firm through it all. Dr. Barber and his staff are very knowledgeable, helpful, and friendly. I highly recommend him for any shoulder or knee injuries you may have!

I had a ACL procedure done on my left knee by Dr. F. Alan Barber and that's when we set up a relationship with him and his practice. He has been exceptional, in providing quality care and service in getting me rehabilitated. There were no surprises. Very friendly staff and they treat you well. Its not like going into a hospital and not being cared for. Overall, I have had a very positive experience. His smile is very calming and reassuring, puts you in ease knowing that you are in good hands. His PA Raleigh was even nicer. She was very attentive to detail and informed me of every thing that she was going to work on and took the time to understand the issues with my knee
