What People Say About Dr. Howard Barker, MD
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful

I had a torn achilles tendon and was seen by Dr. Barker. He explained that he could treat it in two ways, one with surgery and one without. After deciding I would like surgery, he was able to quickly schedule my surgery and everything went really well. I was pleased with his level of professionalism and support as I went through this experience. I have since taken my family members to his office and have recommended him to friends. I highly recommend him and his office staff.

Dr. Barker has treated me for two issues, once from an injury and once from a chronic condition. Great to work with, made me feel involved in my treatment decisions and gave me a clear understanding of each scenario. I highly recommend him.

I had a pretty severe ankle fracture the Monday before Christmas and Dr Barker saw me the next day and was wonderful. I have worked at Providence hospital for many years and knew what a great doctor and surgeon he is but to experience that first hand is amazing. My surgery was the Thursday after my fracture and things are going really well. Dr Barker explains everything before it happened and was more than willing to answer all my questions (and as a nurse I had a lot) as well as all my husband.

Dr. Barker has performed two foot surgeries for me with outstanding results. He explained issues that may arise, monitored my recovery, and answered all of my questions. Friendly, professional. He will be chosen to do my next procedure.

I found Dr Barker to be honest and realistic. He makes the decision to do surgery only if it is the best option available. He has a kind bedside manner and will put you at ease.

I have seen Dr. Barker on several occasions for different problems. Each time he has been very honest with what he feels is the problem, and the best way to heal it. Unlike other surgeons, he is not quick to recommend surgery, unless he feels that is best. If surgery is the best option he gets you in right away. He has always helped me get back to my active lifestyle as soon as possible. I have referred several of my family members, and they have all had pleasant experiences as well.

I saw Dr Barker regarding knee pain. He was very helpful and encouraged physical therapy as surgery seemed too aggressive for treatment. PT helped a ton.

I came to Dr. Barker with a hurt foot. He was very patient and helpful, giving me several exercises that would help me get back to living the active lifestyle I live. I recovered a short time later thanks to his advice!

Dr. Barker always treats my elderly mother with respect and kindness. He makes us feel like we are important and he listens. Plus, he precisely explains your condition and treatment options.
